I have a 1969 Winnebago D-18 motorhome. The threaded cover with pressure guage to the city water inlet is stripped. I am having a difficult time finding a replacement part. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Can one even get a replacement part for this? I am thinking of taking the entire inlet off of the inlet pipe connected to pressurized fresh water tank and installing pipe reducers from 1 1/4 " to fit new standard water inlet. I am hoping this will not be too difficult. I am a little afraid I won't be able to get the old inlet off.

I don't know. Let's ask Jimco. Jimco, what do you think?? pat

You might find one at an RV store or at the junkyard.My 1970 Winne has a pressurized steel tank that is filled by the water inlet.A PO installed a tee,a water hose with a female end and two shut off valves after the tank.This set up allows you to bypass the water tank and filler when hooked up to city water.

Thanks for your suggestions. I like what you did to bypass the water tank with shut-off valves when hooked to city water.
I have a 73 brave, so not sure if it is the same inlet, but I had the same problem with the top 2" cap that had the high pressure release on it to protect the system on the rv. I took the pressure release valve off. Which was a bolt, spring washer and grummet. I bought a 2" galvanized pipe cap, drilled a hole in the top for the old pressure relief bolt(valve), put a lot of tephlon tape and pipe dope on the threads of the cap, cleaned the aluminum inlet with a wire brush(a battery terminal cleaning brush works well) and it is holding and functioning well. I hope this helps.
