Fresh water leak

When either city water is connected or the water pump pressurizes the system there is a leak in the area of the city water inlet. I need to know how to remove the panels in the immediate area. 2005 30' Classic.

If your 2005 is like my 2007 classic, here goes from memory of having replaced my inlet regulator in the access panel hatch area.

Remove screws holding the no fuss black tank water connection to panel.

Remove 3-4 screws holding the panel in place for the no fuss connection.

Optional disconnect no fuss fitting to gain more access

Carefully angle the panel or remove and you should be able to reach in behind and unscrew and remove the plastic nut by hand that’s attaching hose to inlet.

Remove screws holding regulator.

If you have difficulty finding replacement go to good hardware store and show them the regulator and say I just want parts to connect garden hose to this and make a temp connection.

Two bandaid project at most.

Replaced the water inlet,Amazon source $40.00. Miserable surgical approach, black water flush fitting removed, then its mounting panel to get to the backside of the fixture. Reverse on the way out. Leak solved, thanks to all.

Good you got it replaced, hopefully w/o exceeding the bandaid flat rate on this job.

Folks, I've replaced mine and one other rigs shur flo water inlet regulator assy. Both times there was a wait for parts and the second was an in camp situation and they tried to keep happy by filling the tank.

OK how about a temporary fix while waiting for the Amazon drone to drop off the new one? Fix applies to a pex piped connection, has a swivel grommet seal to inlet regulator. This will replicate the mechanical pipe connections w/o regulator.

I kept the old one and a trip to the hardware store and with only two pieces from the pluming dept you can rig up a temp connection. Adding a regulator is easy add it inline.

So here's the two pieces I'm adding to my tool box.

1/2" X 3" give or take pipe nipple, plastic is my first choice, cheap. Length is your decision.
1/2" FPT X female garden hose, it has a swivel connection for hose.

A bit of pipe compound on one end of pipe thread into pipe connection on garden hose adapter, snug it up. Now thread it onto the existing pex swivel connection. Secure hose connection so not to strain pex etc. Turn water on and treat yourself to a cold one.

When the drone drops off the new regulator assy, get out tools and that last bandaid at least on a classic and have at it.
