RE: Water fill line leaking how do I access it?

Thanks I am glad to have it fixed and winterized.

RE: Water fill line leaking how do I access it?

Update I found where the hose came off, the fill port is on the drivers side but the hose runs all the way across to the other side there was access through one of the bins and sure enough the fill line was off of the tank.

RE: Water fill line leaking how do I access it?

I didn't get to put much time in it yesterday but I did a few tests to confirm the leak was not coming from somewhere else. I connected my city water port to the hose and charged the system and got no leaks, I then bypassed the city water to fill the tank again no leaks I ran water for a few minutes filling the tank and then drained it. I have confirmed the leak is from the port in the side of the RV. For now I am going to winterize it by disconnecting the inlet side of the pump and installing a hose from the suction side of the pump to the jug of RV antifreeze. This will get me winterized but I need to fix this issue I am afraid the fresh water tank may become contaminated driving down the road with this obvious leak in that hose. I think I may have created this issue by filling the tank through the city water connection and leaving the other fill port cap on. When the tank filled the pressure may have blown the hose off or split the hose. When I fill the tank through the city water port I did it last without a regulator and I am on a well with pretty good pressure. I didn't think it would be a problem since I was just filling the tank but now I can see this may have caused this issue. I am hoping I can figure out how to access the fitting to the tank without cutting a hole in my floor. I have been wanting to replace my floor but not for this reason.

RE: Water fill line leaking how do I access it?

I am going to look for my water pump today I think access to it is under the bed if I have easy access to it I will buy one of those valves for winterizing thanks for pointing that out I have owned many RV's over the years and never knew they had that product. This is why I like this site I learn new cool stuff all the time. I learned about the battery watering kit on here and put that on man does that save time this product also looks like another big time saver.

RE: Water fill line leaking how do I access it?

Can you access the fresh water tank from inside the RV? I am not sure I am going to look more tomorrow the tank sits between the frame rails I don't think there is any access short of cutting a hole in the floor. There is an access panel behind the toilet and I can see the flex tube where it comes through the outside wall but then it disappears into the area under the floor and it is not leaking in the section I can see.

RE: Water fill line leaking how do I access it?

1st, why are you putting antifreeze in the FW tank? If the tank was full the antifreeze is running out the overflow/vent tube. Stop filling! If you don't have a pump winterizing kit buy one. $15.00. It's a t fitting, a valve and a 2' hose. it allows you to suck antifreeze out of the jug straight into the piping system using your water pump. It goes between the pump and the FW tank. should not take more than 3 gals. My manual says to do it that way it worked last year. I have not heard of the kit you are talking about but I will look into it. You don't fill the whole tank with antifreeze it has me drain the fresh water tank and the water heater then put 5 gallons of antifreeze in the fresh water tank the problem is the fill port is leaking somehow and it is leaking rather than going into the tank.

Water fill line leaking how do I access it?

Coach is a 2005 Fleetwood expedition 34H. I am in the process of winterizing and I was starting to fill the fresh water tank with RV antifreeze it is running out as fast as I put it in. The tank had water in it before I started with no leaks I can't tell where it is leaking it is above the frame and leaking down. How do you access the top of the water tank? Yes the drain valve is closed it is not coming from there. I did this last year with no problem. I usually fill the fresh water tank with the fresh water hose in the bypass mode when I am using the coach normal operation. I am trying to put the antifreeze in with the fresh water port.

RE: Keeping mice out what do you do?

I keep a “ Wheel of death “ at home near my rig. Simple Home Depot type of bucket of water with a rod through it at the top and through a pop can with some peanut butter on it. It just spins and the mice drown in the water. You tube it to see it work. I tried that in the barn and never caught a mouse I trap lots of them in the barn with the good old victor type traps.

RE: Keeping mice out what do you do?

Find an outside cat, make a nice cozy box for it to sleep in in the shed. Give it some food and water and access to outside. You won't have a mouse problem anymore. The coyotes have eaten 3 cats.

Keeping mice out what do you do?

I live in a rural area with lots of mice they are impossible to irradiate. I have had major damage to my last RV a 5th wheel where they got into everything and I ended up replacing all the heater duct what a job. We have killed 2 so far in the motor home what do you do to keep them out? I have areas that can't be completely sealed under the bed there is an area that has a lot of wiring it seems to be open on top and very hard to get to, I think that maybe where they can get in. I keep the MH under a free standing metal RV carport that is adjacent to 80 acres of forest with an endless supply of vermin. So far we just have some traps set but I am wondering about the plug in sonic deterrents?

RE: Fleetwood ratings

I have a Fleetwood Expedition and so far I like it a lot. I have had some small issues that I have fixed but it is a 2005 so it is going to have some issues no matter what brand. The wood work is not high end but better than the TT's I have owned. It has a Freightliner chassis with a Cat C7 and Allison 3000. The slide mechanisms could be better they are rack and pinion with electric motors I would have preferred hydraulic operated slides the large slide struggles to move in and out.

RE: I need to setup a 2007 Chevy Tahoe for towing.

Likely, do a search. You'll probably have to buy a new base plate and cable and wiring. And break away equipment. I did a search and didn't find anything.

I need to setup a 2007 Chevy Tahoe for towing.

I bought a nice low mileage 2007 Chevy Tahoe to pull behind my 05 Fleetwood Expedition. I have a 10,000 LBS towing capacity on the coach. I got a Ready Brute tow bar with the coach when we bought it but I am missing some parts. I need the base plates and the brake cable that attaches to the vehicle brakes. I was going to tow my old car with a dolly but decided to buy a different car. Anyone on here tow a vehicle this size with the same Ready Brute setup Tahoe, Yukon, Durango or Explorer?

RE: Water hose storage??

I read reviews on the Zero G and there seems to be a lot of problems with them leaking that sucks because I was going to buy one.

RE: Water hose storage??

I wonder how something like this would work. Link It doesn't say drinking water but I guess I could replace the hose. The size would fit in my bin. Man it would be nice to just pull out how much hose you need then have it retract.

Water hose storage??

I need a new water hose my cheap 50' Walmart hose is a kinked up mess. I did a search looking for a cheap hose reel with no luck. Maybe I just need a better hose but it would be nice if it had a reel to reel it up anyone know where to get something like that without spending a bunch? I found some in the $300+ range but I don't want to spend that much for my water hose.

RE: Car dolly's what to look for?

i just bought american car dolly. exactly what your're lookin for ! So you own this one and have no affiliation with the company if so how much have you used it? I saw it advertised on my local CL. I prefer electric brakes. I have had surge brakes on other trailers they are pain in the rear.

RE: Car dolly's what to look for?

Maybe ask in dinghy. I searched that forum and did not really get the answers I was looking for.

Car dolly's what to look for?

I want to get a tow dolly what features am I looking for? What tie down type? what design? I do not want to break the bank I have plenty of room to store it I already own 2 16' car hauler trailers one enclosed and one open but don't want to deal with a trailer that size. I don't want to trade cars mine can't be towed 4 down a 2008 Mazda 6 auto FWD. I have the ability to repack or replace the bearings and races if needed. There are many on our local CL used. I am setup for electric brakes on our MH. What do I look for? Eventually I will get a different car that can be towed 4 down I have a tow bar that I got with our coach.

RE: Water system woes.

We have a trip planned for the end of July for 6 days dry camping we are going to have to do better with water conservation. They do have a guy that comes by for a fee and he empty's the sewer and fills with fresh water. Looks like I will need him every couple days. We are going to Dune Fest with our ATV's & UTV it is a blast anyone on here going? It is at Winchester Bay Oregon July 23rd thru the 28th.
