A part that I can not find

Does any one know where I can find this water inlet? I have two of them on the trailer and the plastic is sun rotted. I would love to find an exact match, but something close will do also. They are 4 3/4 inch high and wide at the widest and tallest part, and it is at its deepest part 1 1/2 inch deep.
Thanks for the help.

I found those also.

I did see those and they are to small, thanks though. Any other sightings would be appreciated!

Are you aware that is not original? That said, you may be able to find some cool marine fitting.....

A part that I can not find

Greetings BB 55 Bubble!

Tom is correct in that I too had problems with the exterior water entrances on both of my coaches. The Overlander needed a new city water entrance while the Minuet needed a new "gravity entrance" for the fresh water tank. Ace Fogdall handled the Minuet repair while Camping World handled the Overlander repair (this was before I discovered Fogdall's). In both cases, the original pot metal castings were of better quality than the new replacements, but the originals were just beyond repair. The "gravity entrance" for the Minuet is pictured below:

The City Water entrance on the Overlander is shown in the photo below:

Ace Fogdall RV lists a part that is very similar to the one in your photo in their current on-line catalog -- they don't give any dimensions that I could find in the on-line description but it may be worth some investigation. You can find the part at:

Good luck with your investigation!

Terry (Overlander63), my post, which Kevin refers to, is missing. Was that inadvertent?
