city water inlet pressure reducing unit - fixing/buying a replacement

The parts manual for my unit lists "601392-05" for the city water inlet regulator, but where can you buy this?

Is it the same as one of these units:
1) http://airstreamsupply.com/Plumbing/...roduct_id=1112
Brand: Shurflo
Product Code: 107182

2) http://airstreamsupply.com/Fresh-Wat...product_id=402
Brand: ?
Product Code: 106342

I appear to have developed a slow water leak here. Any suggestions short of replacing the unit would be welcome as well.

Thanks!

Camping World and most RV supply shops will stock the Shurflo City Water Inlet (the first link you posted). Fairly straight forward fix, remove the water line from the inside (not sure where your's is located, it's under the bathroom sink in my 19'), remove four screws holding the inlet outside the trailer and remove the old one. Clean up the sealant and apply new sealant around the edge of the new inlet and reinstall the four screws. Re-attach the waterline inside, pressure up and check for leaks. Good to go!

They are not that expensive, but if you have the time and curiosity, you can take it apart.

I once took one apart and cleaned the sealing o-ring, and that stopped a leak. And the o-ring can be replaced. Also, as I recall, the connection in the back is similar to a kitchen supply hook-up with a conical washer. If it got screwed down too tight, it can deform and lead to leaks. Both of these leaks can be intermittent, particularly when your water heater has lost its bubble (and you don't have an accumulator) and it over-pressurizes your system.

Thanks for all the help! Unfortunately as soon as I fixed that leak, I realized there is another leak somewhere under the sink. I've posted a new thread on this mystery leak: http://www.airforums.com/forums/f443...ml#post1755952
