Installed fresh water tank today, and with that, 100% done with the plumbing, no leaks and everything works. Can easily remove tank for cleaning and winter storage. Water inlet to tank can be locked for safety.

Can you tell me a bit more about your tank quick release? Is it a flexable hose connected to the pipe with a hose clamp? Where did you find the flange for the hose to slip over..
Thanks and congrats on the finish!!

The water fill can be bought on ebay or other places, made by Perko http://www.ebay.com/itm/PERKO-6902-VENTED-WATER-BOAT-ANGLED-DECK-FILL-/190505669616#vi-content All components where bought at home depot. To disconnect remove one small clamp (air vent) and unscrew trap adapter w/washer and plastic nut and union. The blue hose 1 1/2” hose was also bought at home depot, very flexible. The tank will also set in a pan with a hole going thru the belly pan for possible leak.

My fresh water tank is only 10 gal's (we all know that space is premium)
and 1 gal in the pressure tank. We only go to one campground that does not have water hookup, we take a 5 gal. container with us, works out great.

hope this helps

Toastie,

I love your attention to detail and all the work you've done. Can you tell me the brand of your galley sink and faucet. We've been looking at IKEA, but I prefer the look of yours.

Bruce

Thanks Bruce

The faucet we bought at Home Depot and the 15 1/2" polished sink was off ebay, can't remember the brand's.

Thanks again

Toastie:

Will you please explain the middle image of Post 939? To the right of the compartment door are your electrical and water supply, correct? What am I looking at within the compartment door frame?

Thanks for your great and informative thread.

Hank

Thanks Hank

It’s not electrical, it is Marinco phone and satellite/cable TV inlet.

Toastie,

I think Hank is referring to is what I believe is the exhaust fan of your airconditioner, in that middle photo of #939.

That is a 12v switched fan that is attached directly to the AC duct work, there is also duct work that run behind the license plate. That fan will only be needed on very hot days, it will draw air from the opening behind the license plate then out.
