Had to repair city water inlet

I am a Newbie from Colorado Springs. Last week, while on the second trip in my coach, the city water inlet came loose.

It was hanging by only two screws.

After removing all the screws I realized that the third screw was never properly screwed into the plywood that is underneath the fiberglass!

Rather than reposition the inlet, they simply added some silicone to make it stick. Last week, while hooking up, it finally gave way.

However, it was a simple fix. I unscrewed everything, drilled new holes, added some clear caulk, and now everthing is better than it was from the factory.

I also bought an elbow to use with the city water inlet. Better safe than sorry!

I also have the blue filters. However, I stopped hanging it from the city water inIet and I started hooking it up to the water faucet. This way, I don't have to worry about the extra weight on the inlet.

Pick up a brass 90 degree elbow from Camping World or Amazon (just a couple of dollars) and that will allow the hose to hang straight down and remove almost all of the strain on the connection.
