    Just discovered a leak in our Hymer B640 Starline circa 1999. Its the adaptor from the hob drain to the trap under the 1st small sink thats split. Anyone had to source one of these? Please

    Don't know exactly what it is like but my first though would have been a bit of black sikaflex as its not under pressure.

    My thoughts exactly short term, i just so happened to have this sitting in a locker! It's sitting on the back bumper curing at the mo, and half the kitchen cabinets and draws are sat on the pitch, hopefully the caravan club wardens here aren't of the grumpy variety!
    Thanks for the prompt reply (y)

    I did a similar fix and then bought a replacement.
    The replacement is still in the cupboard under the sink 5 years on:Eeek:
    You just have to love these temporary fixes don't you:doh:

    Do you mean this? If so yes, we sourced one from Brownhills eBay shop.

    Yes that looks the same thing, slightly different setup to ours but looks the same reducer, i can only presume the flexi pipe exerts some force on it to make it fail. Pain in the bum to get at!

    A brilliant little item to carry about (or just buy a roll from a DIY store when you need it) is a roll of self-amalgamating rubber tape.
    About the same size as a roll of insulating tape.
    It's brilliant stuff for mending pipe leaks, for waterproofing electric cable connections, etc etc. Well worth the cost (about 4 or 5 euros in Spain and France).

    Good advice, first thing i looked for but as usual it's the one thing you haven't got that you really need! I'll put a roll in the van when we get home. (y)
