there are so many stupid little decisions when building the bus i get overloaded. i would appreciate some opinions on my current dilema
i am getting ready to connnect the plumbing under the bus. im going to use inch and a half (drain)and three inch (toilet) abs for the drain and half inch pex for the vent.
my dilemma is that most of the plumbing is going to be next to a tire set, my passenger side rear duals. that being the case, should i just plumb as usual, or should i install some rubber sleeve fittings in anticipation of a tire failure (throwing the tread) and plumbing damage.
i think the trade off is a a hard fixed pipe will be fine until any damage....while a pipe pre-cut and repaired with a flexible sleeve might fail at the hose clamps and give you trouble.
the connection most vulnerable is the 3"pipe from the toilet straight to the tank. the pipe drops out of the bus right in front of the wheel well. there is about a foot or so between the tire and pipe.
as it sits on the truck i need to rotate the tires. that side is the oldest closest to retirement on the current tires.
so plan for damage and repairs or no?
