Since you have to do this, my suggestion is to change over to the industry standard of Valterra. All new Airstreams come with Valterra. Parts are easier to find and less expensive. You can also in a regular connector(Valterra) at the same time.
Parts can be found at Camping World in New Braunfels or any of the RV Dealers in your area.
I would stay away from the Airstream dealer in Buda. Have not heard good things from them.
