That may very well be what happens.
Even if Southaven RV has the valve I may get them to ship it to me.
Then I can commence enjoying my Saturday at the lake.

Um...
Well...
Southaven RV is useless. They don't have it in stock.
That cheesy little piece of plastic junk is $45!
Looking online to see where I can get it for less if that is possible. Dometic may set the prices.

There is a Sealand 310 water valve on Amazon for $42 that looks identical. Is it?

The Sealand toilet on Amazon looks identical.
I might hit the road to Camper Corral so I can fix it today.
But I guess if I order it I can fix it next Saturday.
How many more times do I want to walk to the bath house to pee?

Apparently Dometic/Sealand is the same thing...
Another toilet is described as Dometic Sealand 310...
Might be ordering the valve online.

In getting everything ready today, I found two places with cracked plastic: the toilet water valve and the outside shower fixture. After seeing how that toilet valve is a natural low point I am going to need to blow it out in the future. The shower was simply a mistake in that I forgot to leave those valves open.
Looking for leaks I also found that the factory had not tightened the cap on the freshwater pump inlet filter. Easy to rectify.
Total cost of repair parts about $60 over the web and I am smarter now.

Don't feel bad, we all learn one way or another. We had it a little more involved... forget to pull that hot water heater plug and stow your Airstream in Northern Illinois for the winter and look what happens:

OK.
Ordered the Dometic Sealand 310 water valve from AdventureRV.net for $28.55 + $8.56 shipping.
Why do useless RV dealers charge $45-$65 for it? I would have spent $50 in gas to go get it or the same in shipping. I'll be walking to the bath house to pee for 3-6 business days...
$30 is about what I thought it should cost...

I don 't have a "local".
I am at their mercy.
The website did state that a tracking number would not be available for 2-3 days.
Maybe it will be here quickly.
I plan to use the trailer from now till November. It is inconvenient going to the bath house every time, especially at night.

Uh huh, mine came today after 6 days for "3-day" priority mail. I talked to the Postal Service and they could not explain why it sat for 2 days at an intermediate point in SC. Their comment was that they only guarantee delivery times for Express Mail. I guess you need to use UPS or FedEx if you want prompt delivery.

All that different amounts of money for different number of days is a bunch of bull. It takes how long it takes. Everything gets anywhere in 2-3 days regardless. If you paid less money they leave the package at the terminal for a couple more days...
Don't believe me? Watch your tracking number day by day.

Just FYI. Anytime you need to lubricate any rubber seals, o-rings, etc., ALWAYS use silicone lubricant (this isn't the spray, BTW). Any petroleum based lubricant will rapidly cause deterioration of the seal. (I have a swimming pool with lots of valves, pump seals, etc., and had this drilled into me by the guys who installed it.....so same principle applies in an RV water system.)

Or glycerine. You can buy it in just about any supermarket. That's what the rubber industry used before silicone grease was invented.
