Malcolm went to empty our gray tanks this evening and found what every trailer owner doesn’t want to find – a puddle of water under the trailer and freshly dripping water from the underside. Malcolm dug out flashlights, tools and emptied the basement of storage boxes to find a common issue – the plastic check valve on the hot water outlet of the water heater was dripping.
A quick grip with a pair of pliers broke the valve off, as one would probably expect. Looks like Malcolm will be shuttling back and forth to Lowes tomorrow to start buying extraction tools. (For those familiar with such things, he has spent this evening reading numerous threads on the Heartland forum on removing the plastic piece and what to replace it with).
