Replace Hoses 2001 Gib'Sea

Hello all:

I have a 2001 GIb'Sea:

The sanitation houses are needing replacement.

I've poked around some. It looks like these houses were rigged prior to assembly of the boat. I really don't know how I'm going to get at a lot of them.

Has anyone ever done this with this particular model, or does anyone have any suggestions as to how to do what seems to be an impossible task?

Michael, use a wooden plug joiner to connect new to old then pull them through and hope the join doesn't come apart. Did ours this way and the hoses are 5.2m and travel behind all sorts of cupboards and bulkheads.

Yes I think that could work, but I do believe that there are some of those nylon zip ties which are going to impede pulling the new material through.
