I would opt for a replacement...your warranty will go 1-2 years, but winterization can prevent a deja-vu...duct tape will last...oh...about 30 seconds...empty the fresh water tank until it spits, turn it off, wait, turn it on again until it quits spitting, and repeat this action until the spout just pretty much spits. You can winterize with the pink stuff...I use 2-3 large bottles of the cheap vodka, and flushing the system in a decent climate is quicker...empty the fresh water tank, add vodka from the slums, run each tap till it begins to foam(don't forget the shower and toilet), and continue planning your next trip...don't let the fumes get to you!!! m
Please note that some comments to this suggestion raised questions as to the effect on the in-line water filter...we replace ours every year, so those questions, to me, are moot...pink stuff can stain, vodka leaves a hint of potato gone good for the first couple of flushes, and we frequently use bottled water for consumption purposes...in Silverton, we ARE a source of direct-line H2O: in AZ, we are in a desert-deep water source that requires filter changes...part and parcel of RVing...wouldn't change it for most anything. I ramble, so I can ramble...m
