Question "O" Ring Source

My 73' Argosy came with a few sewer fittings. But the large "O" rings are shot. Being in the boonies, no one in town has them this large. Aren't they a standard ring??

I checked online at a couple places with no luck.

I hate to toss perfectly good fittings for lack of an "O" ring or two.

Thanks

Any RV dealer should have them, but they are special for the fittings. I don't think you will find them anywhere else.

Good luck,

Vaughan

o-ring vendors

If you know the size, individuals can purchase o-rings from full-line suppliers such as McMaster-Carr, or a specialty vendor like allorings.com. I've used them both.

Are you talking about O-rings or the gasket in the Thetford hose fitting? If it's the Thetford, I have looked in the big cities and cannot find a standard replacement. You're lucky if you can find them at big RV places. I usually find them at mom and pop RV places that have been around for more than 20 years.

I certainly feel your pain. Folks sometimes say that I should just hop down to Home Depot (Lowe's, etc) or the RV outfit or whatever. Yeah, right. The nearest Home Depot is right at 80 miles away; the nearest RV outfit -- a very small one -- is 100 miles; and the full-service RV outfits are 160 miles away.

Life in the boonies ...

Thumbs up Home Depot, Walmart too far

I use McMaster Carr for almost all my hardware. If I place the order before 5:00PM I have it the next day without any special shipping charges.

Their online catalog is easy to use and has useful guides and often drawings of items.

Prices are soso.

Smile Hi Sundance

Most auto parts stores sell an O ring kits. That is they sell you a 5 foot lond o ring material and glue and you make your own. This kit normaly has about 4 or 5 diffrent zizes of o rings. If your parts store does not have it try to get them to order it. I belive Gates rubber and few others make this kit.
Regard from Russell in sunny and warm Tucson Az.
