    Sanitation hose replacement, $hitty job!-gctid804258

    As Holodeck is being launched Thursday This week (YEAH!!!!!) I found time to get the sanitation hose replaced on this 1994 Carver 390 CPMY. I ordered 75' of Trident hose and heavy duty clamps. This project SUCKED! However, I know I will not get the odors I was getting topside. I even used 5200 on every joint and double clamped each joint. The hardest part was finding a friend who was scrawny enough to fit in the bilge. Well, I have one and this man could barely get there. The second hardest part was running a new length from the aft cabin master to the front of the starboard engine. It took us 9 hours, start to finish. However, marina price was $2900.00 so I know I saved a few dollars. LOL, and I wanted a TWO head motor yacht! Now that its done, great! Next time I may buy one that has been replaced already.

    I saw my former Bayliner, "NEW BEGINNINGS!" she is not the shiny boat I once owned! I feel so sorry for her, as she now bobs on a mooring, rather than sitting proudly at a slip!

    Launch is Thursday so stay tuned!

    Did you use a hose connector duct taped on the pull the new hose in with the old hose being pull out? Or did someone install the hanger straps tooo tight on the old hose to do that?

    Not familiar with that boat is the reason for the questions?

      Sealant should not be used with sanitation hoses. Bayliner and others did it for production reasons. If a clamp was left loose they did not have to go back and tighten it.

        +1 Pity the poor soul who has to deal with it the next time it requires attention. Add the fact that 5200, being permanent, is not the best choice for something that will eventually need to be replaced again some day.

          Heat will release 5200. A heat gun on the fittings should do the trick.

              I used 5200 on all my sanitation fittings and hose connections. Even without heat the 5200 will let go, just upgraded my head and was pleasantly surprised the 5200 released so easily. It doesn't adhear well to smooth plastics but has good filling capabilities, that's why I used it.

                Hanger clamps WAY too tight! It was done the old fashioned way, Yankee Ingenuity! Seriously, It really sucked!
