Plumbing Hook-Up Question

Please forgive me if this is not the place to ask this question since I am very unfamiliar with the use of this site. I have a 2010 30ft Classic Limited and am not sure what the short white water hose is for. The dealer ship I purchased the unit from had just aqquired the AS dealer ship and was unfamiliar with the unit. I am also curious if anyone has suggestions on a better way to hook up the black water flush and the fresh water port without standing on your head? Any help is greatly appreciated.

I have my all of my water connection items fitted with brass quick connect fittings. I have a hose about 3 feet long that I have permanently connected to the fresh water intake fitting in the "stand on your head to get into" compartment. When I hook up, I only have to stand on my head long enough to open the small door in the bottom of the compartment and push the short hose out through that hole. I then connect my regular hose to the short hose.

For the tank flush, I have placed a quick connect connector there also, so I only have to reach it and push the hose I use for sewer stuff into place. I chose a fitting that is the same as the one on my "Sewer Solution".

White hoses are generally understood to be for potable water and in my case I use green for sewer related stuff.

Hope this helps,

Ken

hi patrick

'help' is a universal cry here...

welcome to the forums.

navigate the forum table of contents page and u will see a LARGE variety of SUBforum headings...

for example 'fresh water stuff' goes here...

Plumbing - Systems & Fixtures - Airstream Forums

maybe the mods will move yer post,

2 da plumbing/freshwater section...mehbe

don't sweat it.

white hoses are almost universally FRESH water hoses in rv land.

the 4-ft hose is supplied so u can connect it TO the fresh water INPUT...

the run the hose into the white box and OUT THE BOTTOM via the plastic portal/slider door...

have u seen that?

then one can attach the MAIN freshwater hose or water filter to that short section while in use.

i leave the short white hose connected 4 ever, and push it back into the hatch when not connected to shore water.

a hose/CAP screws onto the open end to keep out critters.

not everyone does takes this approach but that IS the purpose of the short hose.

i don't use the factory/oem BTF but here's a bit of info on using it...

Ken and 2air'.... thanks so much for your suggestions. I was pretty sure that the short (1 foot long hose was for fresh water I just wasn't sure how to use it since it was not long enough to reach the opening in the bottom of the compartment. The quick connects and hose cap are a great idea. Thanks again for your help. Pat

sorry i assumed the short hose was 4 ft...

ONE FOOT?

well i suppose it could still be used at the main inlet

as a prehose/connector to the main hose.

(that knob is a pain to tighten)

or maybe they think U will be parking really close to the water main...



cheers
