Dear Fellow A/S Enthusiasts:
On a recent trip, on our way to a spot w/no fresh water, I filled up the fresh water tank. When we arrived, I saw water gushing from the broken white plastic shutoff valve - quick thinking led me to removing the bubble gum from my mouth and plugging the leak and then finishing the repair with black gorilla tape.
Funny - before leaving I thought while looking at the plastic shutoff valve that I didn't like the design and how hard it is to reach the handle - maybe a premonition?
I found one on Ebay that is made of Aluminum and has a tap drain vs. the cheap "switch" design.
From other threads on this subject, it seems the engineers at Airstream didn't design an access panel or long enough hose to remove & replace the drain tap.
Anyone with experience in this department, please let me know your thoughts.
