Shur Flo City Inlet

Anyone ever replace the screw on fitting with a flexible line or other product? My fitting is not sealing tight and has small drip leak. I took off and reattached - no success. Iím on the road and looking at options on a non travel day. Photo of fitting Iím looking at options on repair/replace

Is the leak at the PEX crimp ring? That's where I see water beads (I think).
If you have the tool, you might try to tighten the ring.

If it is the PEX fitting that is bad, replace it.

I've never added a flexible pipe at that location. If you do be careful to not create a loop that will hold water. That area is notorious for freezing.

Water leak

Are u sure itís not the city water pressure limiter? Over time they go bad. They are easy to replace.
If you have to change the fitting you can get them at Loweís. You will have to buy a tool there also to install the clamps. I would pull the pressure regulator from outside and pull the line out of the trailer. There is usually enough slack in the line to allow you to do this.
Have fun.

I had a slow drip on mine. Couldn't get it to stop. I finally took ik out of the trailer and that's when I discovered a hairline crack in the body, probably caused by freezing. Had to drive 50 miles each way to get a replacement. The good news is that they are easy to change. Good luck with it!

It was the fitting. RV parrís store here sold me a pex push fitting with flared connector to replace the old one. Great on the road repair. Click image for larger version
