tank fill valve

I'm finally getting around to adding a tank fill valve. been wanting to do this for years

I pulled off the dead panel from the kitchen cabinets....actually both of them...the ones pin nailed in place

cut into the water line after the pump. Using PEX and sharkbite fittings, and a brass ball valve, I plumbed a loop back over to the suction side of teh pump, where the winterizing port was. While at it, I added a quarter turn stop cock and a piece of tubing for easier winterizing

No I don't have to get out the second hose and drag to the other side of teh RV when I'm hooked up at a CG!

squirreled in there so hard to get meaningful shots, but to give an idea

it was a fairly easy thing & I'm glad I did it. I think it will be handy. Still need to support the pipe a bit better...maybe.

While I was at it I added the little snap on latches so I could more easily pull off the panels. The small panel was pin nailed into place, and the larger one that accessed the tank and winterizing port was screw attached.

I did the same thing to fill the fresh water tank when connected to city water. These pictures are inside a 34J under the bed.
