Water Drip Outside at City Inlet

Woke up this morning to a large pool of water around our camper. There is a periodic drip at the city inlet connection. Iíve tried tightening but that doesnít seem to do anything. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Can you tell where the drip is coming from? Inside or outside?
If it's inside, by removing the four screws, you "should" be able to pull the built in regulator out enough to see the connections.
If it's outside, I recommend using a new washer and then attaching a "quick connect" of some type that doesn't need screwing and unscrewing.

My hose has become a science project with quick connects everywhere, but I've had the same inlet connector on my last MH and the Airstream for 20 years without a drop.

We had a similar problem. It turned out to be a hairline crack in the back side of the fresh water hose connection. There is a built in pressure regulator and check valve integrated into the fresh water hose connection too. Ours must have frozen at some point. There is probably a panel somewhere to gain access to it on the inside. Ours was in the back of a closet.
Good luck

Is the water heater on or off? Back pressure from heated water may cause the inlet to leak. Solution is to tighten it from the backside of the inlet. I added thread tape. Seems to work.

Replacing the fresh water inlet connection might be the solution. Can you find a way to peak behind it?

I have the same trailer as Steve and have replaced mine twice. Actually just once but the replacement was faulty so ......

On my '06 25FB there is an access panel at the back of the closet. Once removed, it was a straight forward process. I really like the original design with the turn star for tightening up the hose. Had to replace a few washers over the years but that has been it. Owned our trailer since 2009.
