drip at city water fill

We just purchased a 04 LY. I have been going over all the systems all is well with the exception of a drip I can not get rid of at the city water hookup. Ive tried everything from washers to pluming tape. Upon close inspection it seem to be leaking from the hose fitting on the moho. There is access to the fitting from the driver side wardrobe but I can not get the fitting removed from the plasitic pannel. Has anyone delt with is? The drip is on the out side, between the hose and the fitting so I not that worried about it. But would like to have everything right.

We had the same problem with our LY. So much so we took the easy way out and used the potable water tank and pump until the potable water tank fill tube came apart and we nearly flooded our rear storage. I tried to fix them both myself but plumbing never was my strong suit. Called our local RV Mobile repair man and he fixed both. The leak on the city water hookup was an easy fix for him. It was apparently a bad washer and there is a flap type backflow preventer that was bad as well. It was worth the $80 an hour labor charge to have them both fixed. The tank fill tube just came apart and was easily reattached and clamped.

Problem solved for now

Thanks for the replies and welcome. I stop the drip yesterday, by putting plumber stem packing on the back side of the washer, and a different washer with screen. This is a back flow valve with a swivel hose connection. The check valve is working as it should, the hose connection is leaking at the swivel. It would seem that the wasker would stop any water getting to that part of the fitting, but in this case it was not. The stem packing and different washer did the trick. I installed a very short hose appox. 4" onto the fitting that has a swivel hose fitting that I will hook our inline water filter with supply line hose.

Glad you found the problem. On mine the leak was on the inside, besides wet rugs, it was a PITA.

Here are a couple of fotos. Streetside, MBR

I replaced the entire panel. In the photo the city water line is a pex connector that I joined with the reinforced plastic tubing. The green/white tube is the gravity fill for FW tank.

Chose to replace the entire panel as it was easier to put in new instead of wasting time cleaning the old one of the mastic gunk and fiddling about.

I have the same issue on my 05 LY. You replaced the panel with a white unit?

Thanks for the info. My do the same in the future my fix with the short piece of hose looks a little shabby. Iam a little supprised that CP has a panel I would think that it would have to come from Airstream.

Can't recall if CW had them on sale or not, they had several to choose from.
