RV Plumbing


The piping in my RV looks like Schedule 40 CPVC but appears to be much thinner-walled. Is it something unique to RVs? I have heard of thinwall (Schedule 30) pipe but have never seen any. Are fittings available to connect the thin stuff to "regular" CPVC?

I believe that the pipe schedules go 20, 40, 80 & 120. That being said your best bet for the part(s) you're looking for are either a plumbing supply store or an RV dealer who has a service depot.

That was my thought, if it's an older model it would be Quest, which would be gray, newer ones use Pex.
It should say right on the pipe what it is.

It's not PEX. It's too rigid and the joints are glued. The RV is a 2010 model. I don't remember seeing any markings on the pipe but will check.

VIPlumber, you forgot Schedule 5 pipe.

Much of the RV plumbing is special to the RV business. Just go to an RV repair shop. Take samples.
