Fresh water tank hose replacement. Help!
I am asking those smarter about things AS(most everybody here) than myself to see if I am right. Hairline cracks in the fill hose on my '79 Safari 23 have cause it to leak like a seive when filling the tank through the outside water fill port. The cracks are where the hose bends down to connect to the tank. So far, simple fix with hose clamps, a piece of 1 1/2" hose and a double barb. However, Long term, I would like to replace all of the hose with a single piece from the fill port to the tank. As near as I can tell I have two option. remove all the cabinets, sink, counter and who know what else to do it from the inside OR drill out the rivets on the locking flll port cover and pull the hose out from the outside, put new one on, reinstall and reconnect and finish with Olympic Rivets. Seems like no contest but what am I missing?
