1998 Cheiftain...Kitchen Sink Drain Leak

Went halfway across the country on Interstate 40.....Ever drive on Interstate 40?.
Bone breaking pot holes have beat my poor old Chieftain into submission.
I have a bad leak in the kitchin drain? Flexible drain hose i hear...Where do I start?.
I am looking for access.. must be some trick to it... I'll bet somebody out there knows.
Thanks,
Bob

You might want to go HERE and download the plumbing diagrams for your coach.
That should show the location of the drain hose.

Looked at the diagrams.. Thanks... I figure it must be a broken flex hose or a related fitting...water pours out (outside in the sewer valve / shower area) when my wife empties the sink.. No leaks inside.. I just have to find out how to access the flexible drain hose and it's related fittings...Do I go inside and remove cabinets, Floor.. walls.. stove? Or Outside ?? Perhaps there is an access panel somewhere?

Maybe the slide plays a big part here? Probably has to be extended and maybe I will find something.

Extending the slide would be my guess. You can also call Winnebago customer service, they usually give pretty helpful answers.

Found the connector between the flex hose and the Tee broken.

Looks like it's easy to get to.. It's not.. held the phone in the hole to get these shots..Does anyone know if these are is Winnebago's fittings or if the folks I bought this rig from changed things?

There must have been a flange type fitting that went from the (Threaded) flex hose to the glued Tee? Any Ideas?
