City water connection leak

Hello Airstream friends, I sure could use some advice. My Ď02 22ft CCD international has a leak at the city water connection. Could you possibly give me some advice on removing this valve ? Do I come from underneath ? I think I attached a photo. Oh ya, and a good supplier for a replacement.

A huge thanks

Where is the leak coming from? Right where the hose connects or somewhere else?

Coming from just behind hose connection. Dripping out from bottom panel.

Water issue

Sounds like it might be the pressure regulator. Itís easy to replace. Remove the Phillips screws holding the city water connection and pull it out.
Hook up your hose connection and turn on the water.
If the regulator is leaking you will see it here.
I changed mine and replaced the valve to body gasket also.
Good luck.

I've not repaired one on your specific model, but have on prior Airstreams I've owned. It can be a fairly easy DIY project.
Start by unscrews the perimeter screws. This may, depending on how the pipe is arranged, let it loose enough to see and get at the water pipe connection. The water pipe is PEX or flexible tube with a nut at the end connection. If you can pull the inlet outward a few inches it can be replaced from the outside. If not look for access on the inside, not from below through the belly pan.
I think this is what you will need>https://www.amazon.com/SHURFLO-183-0.../dp/B002OUPFOU

ps:
Most of the time the backside of the connection occurs within a cabinet, in a storage area, or under furniture where it can be accessed from inside the trailer. It might not be easy, but can be done without tearing up the trailer.

Remove the four screws outside, should be able to pull it out a little. Sometimes you can just tighten the threaded water line connection. Other times, the unit is cracked. Pull it out a little and see if the fitting is loose. Hook up water and see if that fixes it, otherwise see where it's leaking. $30 part, someone already linked to it.

Fantastic..thanks,you guys. You were a big help. I was able to pull it out and see that it was leaking at a joint on the check valve body. I took a picture,and wanted to share that. But,can’t figure out how on this reply message.
Big thanks

New one will have a gasket included. That's all you need.

That looks like typical freeze damage. When winterizing, be sure and blow out or force antifreeze into the system. That will protect that portion of the city water line that goes back to the pump.

BTW, I never use city water, always the tank & pump. You will hear any leak immediateley due to pump chirping. An aquaintance of mine came back one eve to a trailer full of water, a writeoff. A fitting at thehot water tank gave way and it pumped water into the trailer for over 2 hours. After that I only use the internal pump and shut the switch off when I leave.

I'm with you, always use the tank and water pump, especially if I am on two way. My wife left the bathroom tap running slowly one night, the grey tank filled, backed up through the shower - fortunately I got up and noticed before total disaster...

I heard a story, true or not of a toilet not shutting off and a black tank backing up and flowing over. Yuck. My own story is of forgettign to shut the pump off, goign over a rough road and my kitchen sink filling as a tap vibrating open. Not lot of water but it could have been worse. That was due to bath stop and forgettign to turn off pump afterwords.
