When we purchased our Jayco Fifth Wheel camper, it was in pretty good condition, but it wasn't perfect. Within three or four months, we were searching for various RV plumbing parts because the hot water heater went kaplooie. So, we know all too well the aggravation involved with having leaking hot water heaters, and leaking windows too for that matter.
In fact, while doing the full-time RV'ing thing, we also had to replace a faulty, burned out hot water heater element, and an RV sink faucet in the kitchen area. There were a few other little annoyances and upgrades too. Nevertheless, the truth is, it all proved to be a very enriching experience, and it helped to further my personal goal of becoming debt free!
I'm sure that if you have had your own camper, or other recreational vehicle, for any length of time; you've probably encountered a few of these same types of problems. They certainly can be annoying when they spring up.
As indicated by my own little tale of woe, when problems arise they can be a bit on the annoying side. Fortunately, for me though, my own camper plumbing issues were relatively easy fixes. Moreover, having a reliable source of RV plumbing parts for sale has been a great help in enabling me to quickly repair the "few" RV plumbing problems that I had.
Recreational vehicle plumbing systems are comprised of two distinct water subsystems. These are the fresh water, and wastewater plumbing systems.
On a side note, these subsystems are also frequently referred to as the “white” and “black” water systems respectively. Each of these RV water systems consist of various parts and assemblies, and each one of them is listed below.
The fresh water plumbing system on your motorhome, camper, or travel trailer will generally be equipped with the following basic components. These components may vary a little depending on the size, type, and age of your recreation vehicle, but the basics should be the same.
Additionally, fresh water RV plumbing systems may also include optional water purification systems, outside showers, etc.
As with the fresh water system, your RV's wastewater plumbing system is also equipped with some basic components. These may also vary depending on the make, model, and year of your particular recreational vehicle. However, the following core components should be about the same.
In the modern recreation vehicle world of today, RV sinks are available in a wide range of shapes, sizes, colors, styles and finishes. Some camper sinks are made of stainless steel, while others are made from porcelain china or, generally less costly, plastic materials.
You may be able to find the particular RV sink you’re looking for in a local brick and mortar RV replacement parts store, but you will likely find better selection, and lower prices from online retailers. Plus, if you’re looking for older or vintage camper parts and supplies, online options will generally provide you with many more opportunities to find the sink or other replacement part you’re looking for.
Some of the best-known RV sink manufacturers are Kinro Composites, Lyons, Lasalle Bristol, and Thetford. There are certainly other brands of recreational vehicle sinks out there, but these are the brands that many RV’ers seem to be more familiar with.
There are a variety of styles or types of camper sinks currently available in our listings of RV plumbing parts for sale. Depending on the manufacturer, you can find:
New Double Basin RV Sinks are, for the kitchen area, among the most popular types of recreation vehicle sinks currently available. These sinks are generally made of either stainless steel, porcelain, plastic.
These, and the single large bowl kitchen sink, are fairly standard in many RV's being manufactured today. My personal preference is single basin RV kitchen sink. I prefer this in my home too. What can I say? They provide more room for maneuvering dishes around when washing them by hand.
Whichever RV sink model you ultimately choose, you have plenty of them from which to choose. In addition, when you do make an appropriate camper sink selection, do not forget to purchase the “right” RV sink faucet to fit your new purchase. You know; two hole or three hole?
As with faucets you would find in a regular home, camper faucets are available in various finishes including chrome, brass, brushed nickel, oil rubbed bronze, plastic, and more. There is a large variety to choose from. So, get creative and find a motorhome sink and faucet to suit your style and needs.
An RV water heater is one of the most important components of your new or used recreational vehicle plumbing system. Whether you own a pull behind camper, fifth wheel, toy hauler, or class A motorhome; you're not likely to be very satisfied with it if you can't even indulge in a nice hot shower. Trust me! I know!
I had to replace the heating element in the RV water heater of my used fifth wheel. To be more precise, it was a 1998 Jayco Designer Series Fifth Wheel camper.
It was in pretty good shape. But, boy did it suck when I found out, while taking a shower, that the camper water heater element had gone bad. I was not a very "happy camper"! Pun intended. I had to get online right quick and find a reliable supplier of RV replacement parts.
Anyway, replacing the hot water heating element was not a monumental task, but it was a bit of a pain in the rump trying to remove it from the hot water heater tank. Take a look at my video below. It will give you a few insights on my experience removing the hot water heater element and tank from my camper.
