Re: Where to get bathroom exhaust fans

Unable to find any applicable candidates outside of the manufactured home ones. Ended up, after calling and talking to someone, ordering a couple of 75 cfm Ventlines from an Internet company that didn't charge an arm and a leg for shipping: unit pricing was also low (lowest?). Might not be the quiet...

Where to get bathroom exhaust fans

I'm wanting to to get more powerful exhaust fans in our bathrooms. Looks like my only option, sans extensive work, is to replace with similar units. Currently installed are Ventline V2244 50 cfm units (7" ducting connection) WITH lights. Bathrooms are about 50 sq-ft, which according to general guide...

Re: No access to shower plumbing

Here's the guest bath's shower faucet connections (just showing one water line, cold- the other one is the same). These appear to be swivel fittings? gBath.jpg The one in the master bath is likely the same. I "might" be able to go direct with PEX. Don't know whether I'd be able to get away with inst...

Re: No access to shower plumbing

You're right. I should, instead, do PEX-A to CPVC adapters. But, I'm getting a little ahead of myself because I have no idea how the connections to the bath/shower faucets are: will try and get around to accessing the guest bathroom's connections.

Re: Shifting under-sink water lines

Greg, For sure, ALL valves are will be replaced. That includes the washer ones too: though the current ones are brass I'm going to go with PEX in order to reduce fitting connections. I was just kind of wondering what other people do, whether they look to wall-mount the lines: would likely have to at...

Shifting under-sink water lines

The piping for my bathroom sinks are toward the middle of the cabinet. I was hoping that when I go to do my piping re-plumb (with PEX) that I can shift those lines back toward the wall. Wondering if I can just run up against the wall using drop ears. Here's a picture of what it looks like under the ...

Re: No access to shower plumbing

Hi, Greg! Yeah, that's kind of what this is looking like. I know I could probably pull the shower enclosure, but it's a lot more work than I'd like. One option might be to just run PEX to the existing faucet, connecting with sharkbite (PEX->CVPC) fittings, and then look to finish it off properly whe...

Re: No access to shower plumbing

Found this thread to be of interest (it popped up in my search for "drop ear"): https://www.mobilehomerepair.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=5875&sid=ac0fa3cfee79d260b966eecbe0b2473c Still doesn't address what can be done if you don't have access. As my guest bath has an access panel via an adjacent b...

No access to shower plumbing

I am looking to pick back up a project to re-do all my plumbing with PEX (going with PEX-A): I spec'd this out WAAY back in 2012 ( https://www.mobilehomerepair.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=9018 )! I believe that I only have one issue to resolve, and that's how to connect up to the master bath showe...

Re: Should skirting hang over edge of slab?

Not exactly freeze-free here- PNW.

Being on a slab would it really matter? I'm trying to get my head around all the possible dynamics: I can understand non-slab and non-pier installations being sensitive to freezing.

Re: Making open concept

I'm guessing that if there's no supporting blocking underneath the home that is under any of that wall then no, it's not structural. HOWEVER, that might not be conclusive because someone may have set up the home incorrectly. So... as Greg suggested, probably will have to contact the manufacturer: th...

Re: Combining two rain gutter downspouts

Probably a little late to be of help to the OP, but... I get a LOT of rain, in the vicinity of 70"/year! If you take an area adjacent to your house that's equal to 1/2 of your roof area that adjacent area is getting TWICE the amount of water/rain fall as is coming straight down from the skies! For m...

Re: Should skirting hang over edge of slab?

Greg, I really like what you did. I can't seem to find those panels around anywhere. How do/did you facilitate access "doors?"

Here's a picture that kind of shows the situation I have, the extra width on the slab, and the skirting framing (note top is attached directly to home):

Re: Should skirting hang over edge of slab?

Question on your skirting

Image

What is that darker band of material delineating? Why wasn't the lighter material above run down to the top edge of the skirting)?

Re: Should skirting hang over edge of slab?

OK, thanks for the input. I'll do some more pondering. But... Is it correct that the skirting should be free floating, not attached to the home itself? (reason for the tracks [upper]?) As mentioned, I have some framing for the skirting and (I believe) they connected it to the rim joist. The skirting...
