Vinyl protection for under sink cabinet

Didnít like how the under sink area was getting beat up from years of use. Had some left over high end sheet vinyl flooring from my house that made a perfect covering. Took quite a bit of effort for a perfect fit, but it is up under the front lip and under the right side divider so I didnít feel the need to adhere it with adhesive.

Those are nice. Casita offers Hepo drains as standard. I think.

Thanks Pat. Regarding the Hepvo I just really didn’t want to get into the surgery. The 21’s were having a slow draining issue, but the 19’s (atleast ours) has a vent just below the cabinet that splits off to the wheel well. Never had a draining issue even with faucet on full to fill the gray tank for a good flush. Also, while there is space savings it isn’t enough to convince me to commit.

Good points Dave . One thing though because I think trying to save water when boondocking , we have had a smelly drain , a couple times ,I have to use bleach or chemicals . When we have hookups no problem with water washing down drain . I think I may have read somewhere that you have to replace in a few years because of the seals . Have you ever had that problem ? Or forget it and just do what I have been doing to not have any smells ? Because the most water goes down bathroom sink and shower never had any problems with those drains . Pat

No seals, just water. The plumbing "J" trap under the sink serves this purpose, filled with liquid while in use, it prevents sewer gas from entering the living space, just like at home. You have to occasionally insure the trap has liquid for it to function, otherwise the smells invade.
