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.

It worked perfect this past weekend.  Next mod to be done is putting in a HWH bypass so I can winterize it in a few weeks.
