Hello Tom and Winnie and welcome to the forum.

I can't answer your question I'm afraid but I'm just giving your post a bump, see if anyone else picks it up.

I take it you can't access from underneath?

I can't help as my 2000 Hobby 750 was LHD and the waste water tap was under the bedroom on the kerb or starboard side and easily acessable.

Well today 7 hours trying to remove the fibre glass step to acces the valve which I believe was leaking a little from the waste tank. The floor had been wet so it was not just the outlet pipe . I had to remove the door, the trim and part of the aluminium door frame, then I said stop, the whole door frame would need to taken out as the step is fastened into it. So I had to cut a larger access area in the side of the step which I will fashion to look better with piping on the sharp,edges. It was a nightmare, The waste tank is over quarter full now and I shall see if there is any leak or damp areas inside near the valve. I suppose someone will come now and " Dont need to do that , what you do is" lol

Sounds a big job Tom. I hope you fixed the leak while you were in there - you didn't actually say!

Maybe you'd put up a few photos showing the pipework and the access to it?

Hi Tom and welcome

Good luck with the work: it sounds pretty major.

Your avatar shows with a French flag. We have some members based there. Can I ask: whereabouts in France are you based?
