    Haven't attacked the F150 yet, but found a definitive page on the particular connectors that are troubling me. If everything else fails, brute force is an option, because the inner spring-steel retainers are replaceable.

    We ended up digging under and following the pipe. 7 ft in it had buckled. There was debris in it but the main issue was that was in the shape of a "S."

    Contractor was great about it. Said to bill him for it because it was his fault. So I will.

    The great part was that you would have thought we hit oil when we got through with a pipe. My guys were high fiving and hollaring. It was great.
