Since motorhomes are essentially houses and vehicles in one, they bring us great comfort on the road, allowing us to enjoy our travels immensely. Unfortunately, however, this combination of home elements and vehicle elements can also mean a vast array of repair needs, should something break. One of the more common types of motorhome problems we see at Coach Specialists of Texas in Dallas/Fort Worth is plumbing system malfunctioning. Sometimes, it’s a showerhead with very little water pressure or a toilet that keeps getting backed up. Other times, it’s something more major, like a pipe leak that has caused flooding. No matter what the concern, however, you can rest assured that it’s something we can fix at Coach Specialists.
Beyond that, though, you might be wondering how much it would cost to repair your plumbing damage. As with most motorhome repairs, the cost depends on several factors. At Coach Specialists of Texas, here are the elements that can factor into your motorhome plumbing repair costs:
The amount of materials required for the repair.
Sometimes, repairing a plumbing problem is a simple matter of replacing a faucet or sealing a small section of pipe. Other times, it requires many more materials and man hours to fix. On your repair estimate, we can list each and every element involved in your repair, so that you will know exactly what you are paying for.
The extent of damage to fix.
One thing we see quite often is slight water leakage—a seemingly minor issue—that is actually symptomatic of a much greater problem, like a compacted pipe or faulty equipment. At Coach Specialists, we want to fix the whole problem—not just the symptom. We will investigate your plumbing system for compromised areas and address the problem areas as needed.
The extent of resulting damage to clean up.
The particularly destructive aspect of a plumbing problem is what pooling water can do to your motorhome materials, like flooring, carpeting, walls, and more. Water damage and mold are not problems we take lightly, since they can lead to not only greater damage to your RV over time, but they can also be very damaging to your health. If there is mold to remove, flooring to replace, and more, these will factor into the cost of your repair.
