Todayís mod USB port

I changed out one of the 12v charger port to a dual USB port. The change was very simple. If I am satisfied with the performance Iíll change the one in the dash desk also.

I still have not found the leaking connection in the kitchen sink drain.

Living in Canada ( I assume) I'd be looking for crack in the pipes rather than the fittings.
I'm in North Carolina and had a leak in the pump under the bed. I Only found that because I tightens all the fittings, still leaked then I pulled the pump and found a crack. I had blown the water out of the system before winter and we didn't have a cold winter

Drain pipe

It is definitely the kitchen drain pipe. There is no leaking when I fill a pail. I think I have to get a level spot to work on the rv where I can pull out the slide. Then Iíll have a better idea what Iím looking for. I couldnít see anything under the sink, everything is dry in that cabinet.

Make sure you check the drain tailpipe length. when they are installed they sometimes cut them short and while they appear to be tight, they are sometimes not connected to the actual drain. went to Home Depot and bought 2 - 4 inch extensions, added then on ans viola, no more leaks.

I had one of the factory installed ones burn out in our overhead cupboard. Like you I bought a couple new ones. I replaced the burned out one and added a second one to the dash.

Check the tightness of the actually drain assembly in the sink. I had to tighten mine up to stop a phantom leak.

Ok I have the kitchen drain issue fixed. Once I put in a little effort I found out that there is only a friction fit connection between the fixed, and flexible drain pipes. Now I know what to look for if it comes apart again.

I also made a platform to cover the stairs to increase the floor space a little. Room to place the dogís bed.
