Just replace with pex line or a section of hose, Threaded fittings are same size as at the pump and elsewhere in the plumbing system

I have a 16' Sotar (expedition raft) which I normally run in the Grand Canyon. I'll put it in the back of the EB and take it to a lake or river for a shakedown cruise prior to heading to a wilderness trip.

I've done bikes quite a bit. Need to make a removable PVC bike rack.

That is awesome.
Where did you purchase your Vespa?

Thanks, it is awesome and we love it! It's a 150 and it is just perfect for my husband and I. We purchased it at Tropic Power Sports in Ft. Myers, FL. Really nice when you don't want to unhook while traveling but still want to see the sites!

I used the "Pythagorean Theorem" to determine that a Vespa would fit diagonally in the bed of my Tundra. I have attempted a couple of times to purchase one from Vespa of Baton Rouge, but they won't return phone calls or answer emails. My boss has a Vespa GTV 300 i.e. Maybe he will get bored with it soon and sell it to me.

It is terribly important - at least for this 250 - to stabilize and secure the wheels with either a chock or ropes. Otherwise the cargo will shift ... will shift ... will shift on the slippery floor. Fortunately for us all we did was bend the clutch lever and leave a smudge of alum oxide on the cushion.

Our 1200GSW will fit, but not sure about the D-ring installation in the new 2015 EB as several pulled off and one out when they were lifted just to attach the tie downs; it was fine in the 2013. The D-rings are simply self tapping lag bolts screwed into the wooden flooring ... over torque on installation and you guessed it! So advise to check yours before hauling any significant cargo which will be attached to the D-rings.

The XT250 was great to have at the Region rally - we selected that model because it has much more power to haul two people around (than did our old CH80 scooter) as well as fuel injection; so, there were no issues going from higher altitude to sea level and back! Mirrors are unscrewed for loading / unloading to prevent damage ...either to the trailer or to my noggin. Dare I say ...perfect (wife) and the bike is nice, too!

Notice also that I have built a block to keep the end of the aluminum loading ramp away from the delicate aluminum trim around the hatch. The bumper is not designed to handle any amount of weight; so, it is well dispersed to the interior flooring (and NOT the aluminum body) via the wide block (2x6 plus 4x4). We have found that we only need to fold up the rearmost section of cushion on the street side to gain plenty of room for the XT250. Our raft now rides in the rear of the TV.

How do you access that valve?

Mine was in the closet to the left of the shower. When you look in the back of the closet you can see that the floor has a compartment in it that protrudes into the closet space. Remove the top piece and its right there.
I can take some pics. when I get back if needed.

Thanks for the info about where to find that troublesome valve. We will heed the warnings and replace it before it becomes a problem.

On another note, but related to the question of what people haul in their EBs -- has anyone had the problem of the seats falling down when you are hauling something? Our longest lounge seat falls almost every time. The single slide hook doesn't seem to be enough to hold it in place over even slightly bumpy terrain. Anyone have this problem and, better yet, a solution that has been successfully tried?

10-4; many thanks!

As for the benches falling ... we try to add friction to the locks and make certain that they are positioned with the selector lever in the down position ... tape in place.
