Kitchen Sink Drain Fix

A follow up to April 16’s Kitchen Sink in RV Slideout (

The original kitchen drain hose was very stiff which caused the eventual failure of one of the two drain fittings.

Original Drain Hose (left) vs New Flexible Hose (right) – both hoses are 4′ 6″ long

The new hose is much more flexible. However, it’s smaller in diameter and does not have a smooth interior like the original hose. Long story short . . . it will clog more easily. C’est la vie.

With the help of a heat gun applied to each end of the new drain hose, a barbed fitting was forced into each hose end:

2″ barbed connector

The end result . . .

Our slide out closes much easier now with less chance of things breaking
