I have a 1-1/2" PVC (white) p-trap. Connecting at the tailpipe side is no problem. But connecting at the 1-1/2" (white) wall side pipe is a problem. The captive nut on the (Charlottesville 1-1/2") wall side pipe is thinner, larger (2" ?) and does not come down over the end of the pipe. I have never seen this before. Is there an adapter or something I can use? I accidentally threw out the pieces that were previously connected. Thanks for any help

Not sure what you're referring to but this is a typical p trap. The trap arm goes inside the wall pipe. The fitting you see in the the picture should be cemented to the wall pipe assuming it's all PVC or ABS. If it is iron pipe there might just be a threaded pipe out of the wall. One slip nut is on the trap arm with the 1.5" washer threads onto the wall pipe.

Does (2" ?) , maybe mean about 1.9 real inches? Or something well over 2 inches?
