    Hi.
    It seems to be one step forward and two back at the moment. As soon as I get one job finished another appears.
    Could anyone tell me please what's involved in removing the grey waste tank. I've got a leak from underneath the shower tray fittings and the waste from the sink. Both fittings look as though they've been bodged in the past and I need to get underneath the shower tray to see what's going on and either reseal or replace the bathroom drain fittings. Can I just undo the tank straps and drop the tank or is that likely to damage any connections on the top of it?

    I'm not entirely familiar with your layout... I fixed the leaking sink with a new waste trap and pipework, bought from Brownhill's Ebay store. Seem to remember the cassette locker giving good access ?

    Thank you Kaas. I've already replaced the sink waste trap, it was the exit through the floor I was struggling with. You are right I can access the lower part of the fitting through the cassette compartment as you suggested and I've found the elbow is split. That should fix my main problem when I get a new elbow. I can't see any way of replacing the shower drains without dropping the tank, but that can wait for a while. We'll just have to use the showers on campsites.
