I have a leak in my valve for my fresh water intake. I sent a picture to camping world and the guy had no idea, said he had never seen one like this. Anyone know what this is and where I could find a replacement. 

If not is it possible to put a 2"-2.5" threading pipe in replace of this and rig up a hose fitting to it?

I'm open for any ideas. Right now I have water running everywhere outside when I have the water turned on

I've never seen one like this either.  There are several things that I would check.  First, see if you can access this area from inside and figure out what is going on.  Do you have a pressurized tank or a holding tank with pump?  What is the brass valve in the picture for?  If you can't figure it out from inside, then drill out the rivets and pull out the whole plate so you can determine what you need to do.


I like Richards idea. But first i would check to see if you can access the broken connection from inside the coach or in a storage compartment. this would make the job much easier. Just a regular rv hose commection is readily available at any rv parts house UNLESS there is a unique pressure pump or fitting to pressurize the water tank when dry camping. this is a unique part and would have to be sourced from a vintage rv parts supplier like vintage trailer supply. See the Vintage and Salvage parts forum for various sources. Good luck and let us know how it turns out. 

This is a very common water supply as a matter of fact I have two of them in my shed, I got them off ebay, Im not going to use them so if you will email me at ultravanman@yahoo.com I will send you one for the cost of shipping, there is a filler hose which connects to the back and perhaps it has a hole in it, it is i 1/2 " and is convulted so it can bend, I dont have the hose but they are available on ebay or camping supply stores. I really think the hose is the problem
