Full timer looking for fresh tank repairs in DC area
Dry camping in Shenandoah this weekend and discovered my fresh water was dropping at an alarming rate. Have been carrying a full fresh tank for about a week so I was perplexed as to why I was down to three ticks on the monitor this morning when gray and black tanks were only up three ticks since dumping Friday morning.
Checking underneath, sure enough, there is a steady drip every ten seconds or so from the belly pan adjacent to the low point drain valve. Not sure what gave way, but am supposing either there is a crack in the fresh tank or perhaps one of the fittings that has given way. Shutting off the pump doesn't seem to affect the drip rate, so I'm assuming the leak is in the tank rather than in the line between the tank and water pump. Haven't noticed puddles when on city water, but that may be due to not looking for any.
Heading down to county parks Fredricksburg for four days tomorrow and then to Mannassas for a week and a half. Don't want to leave the trailer as it's where we live, but hoping someone from the area might suggest a reliable repair service that could at least troubleshoot if not immediately repair. I know folks are backed up this time of year with getting trailers prepped and pampered after a long storage season, so I expect I may have to bide my time living on city water until I find a place that can order parts (assuming the worst).
Thanks in advance for any obvious alternatives I'm missing (seems to be a recurring theme) and/or suggestions for service in the DC metro area. Al & Robin
