I spent the weekend rebuilding the head
on our 1984 CS 36. Since I was doing a dirty job anyhow, I figured I'd replace the hoses to the holding tank
I dutifully went out and spent four bucks a foot for sanitation hose, hooked everything up and now I've got a leak from the waste output on the head
into the new hose.
Yes, I bought the right size, yes I used hose clamps, no I didn't score the plastic as I was disassembling it... I'm pretty sure I've done everything right here.
Since there's nothing yucky in there right now, I'm tempted to pull the cover off the joker valve, stick my finger in, take a little silicon caulk to the mating connection and call it good. On the other hand, if this starts to leak, the consequences are pretty stinky.
Think this'll work? Any other suggestions? I suppose I could get new tubing, but I just installed it all and I'd rather not (plus, I bought good stuff and this is what it's designed for... I'm not even sure what else I'd get). Also seems plausible to order a new joker valve cover on the off chance that mine is scratched or something, but I just inspected it, and it looks pretty good.
If anyone's got a few thoughts on sealing up a hose connection, I'm all ears.
