Newbie with Questions Part 2 of ?

As previously stated, my wife and I just received our 1964 Bambi II. As I looked inside and around the trailer I am trying to make sense of it.

Question 2: In the attached picture, there is a hose going in to the inlet. This is located on the left side of the trailer (if you inside the trailer looking forward) underneath where the electric cords are stored. I assumed it only can be for two things but I don't know what it is:
  1. Inlet for water when using "City Water"
  2. Inlet for water tank
Since there is a hose (about 10") already there, can I take it off as it looks pretty old?

Thanks in advance.

You can remove the old hose for sure.
On my Bambi II, that connection is for "city" water, which can then be directed to the fittings in the trailer or to the water tank using a valve located under the gaucho (couch). On my trailer there was also an in-line pressure regulator that was non-functional so no water would enter the trailer. I removed the old regulator and added an in-line version connected between the city water connection and the trailer. Got it from Amazon and it works great. If there is not a regulator on your trailer I recommend you add one to prevent damage to the plumbing.

Thank you for your explanation.

This weekend I will look under the couch to look for the valve you mentioned is under the gaucho "couch".

If I understand you correctly this valve directs the water to either
A) the water tank or
B) directly to the sink, shower, etc..

Regarding your comment about the regulator, once I take off the hose in the picture, is this where I would connect the regulator to? I am going to google "in-line regulator" as I don't know what is an "in-line" vs a "non in-line"
