Problems with X213

Trailers are a love hate relationship. I used to have a big 31' trailer but hated dealing with it, sold it off. Kids are older went to a Jayco pop up and realized how much i love camping. Sold it after 4 months and went with the Jayco X213 when i saw it. Love the floor plan. First trip out, propane leak, no big deal, came back from trip and went hour drive to the dealer and they released all the pigtails while i waited, good experience. Second trip out, used the bath top to run a bath first time for washing off kids feet. Glad we did not use much water. After we were done, kids point out water on the floor. I realize water is coming from the area under neath the bath top. I open the wood access panel under neath to the left of the door. Low and Behold there is half a gallon of water on the floor. It seems because we never had a leak before that it has to do with the drain line, when we drained the tub of the little bit of water. I cannot see how they can possible get in this area to fix it without pulling out the whole tub. Thinking of a 25 grand trailer on the second part being ripped apart is driving me crazy. You would think critical stuff like this would have been double checked by the manufacture. We will see. I am so paranoid about water in the trailer and ruining it, having all this water on the floor and coming in contact with all of the wood in the area and rolling around to under neath the sink area is like a nightmare for me.

Sorry to hear that, I would be po'd too if that happened to me....I have never used the tub since we dry camp. We use the outside shower to rinse off the grand kids feet. I will have to fill it up to check mine out.

There is a plumbing connection that you can easily screws into the bottom of the bathtub drain. It is hand tight. I expect that yours has become loose.

In our trailer it is behind the wood paneling (underneath the bed) separating the bedroom from the bath. Just a couple of screws and panel is pulled out. You can reach it easily.

Ours came loose on a recent trip and it is a quick fix.

My access panel is in the kitchen area. I checked the pipes i could reach, but it is coming from a connection farther back that i can't reach. The service writer seemed like it was no big deal and mentioned the Ptrap for the tub, i did not even see a ptrap, the drain goes straight back to where i can't see it anymore . I asked how someone would reach it or how much of the bathroom is going to have to be torn apart. He said they just use a tech with really small hands. I am nervous.

IF you have ever been inside the trailesr when being pulled down the roads will make you wonder how anything stays connected. It is a not a good peaceful ride back there.

Well, i got the trailer back from the dealer. They said that the Ptrap under the sink was not secure to anything and had come loose. The water i saw they believed was coming from the sink (It is all open under there)and not the tub. They even watched as i filled the tub up and drained it before i left and sure enough no leaks. They did a good job and used a mounting bracket and resecured the Ptrap from the sink to the trailer wall. No big deal like they said. However, i got home and there is a two 3" cracks in the fiberglass on the front of my trailer. Wondering if somthing hit it on the way home. Oh well things happen.
