I bought a Travel Trailer in June and basically everything with the water system was just nasty. Since at the time I was going away in 1 week without water hook ups I sanitized the holding tank and replaced the water fill hose, over flow hose, drain hose and drain. Sorry, no pics ’cause I was in a hurry then. I haven’t thought of the city water hook ups because I haven’t been to a campground that had water so I just used my holding tank.
Fast Forward to my trip next week and I have water hook ups!!!! crap, now I need to replace the water inlet. I don’t even want to flush the toilet with the water that runs through this rusty thing.
It was simple enough to remove. 3 screws holding it on and then I just had to run a knife through the caulk and then just wiggle it free from the sticky butyl putty tape. Once it was off I cleaned the side up.
Here is the new part that cost $18 that I picked up at my local RV store. It came with 3 new screws, teflon tape, and butyl putty tape.
Here is the new Water Inlet screwed into the water line.
And the final picture of the finished Water Inlet.
