This was a huge problem on my GDRV trailer, and from what Iíve been reading here as well.

we'll have to see, though, if the factories adopt this new 'costly' replacement, or if they revert to another plumbing method. I like it, too, but I doubt I'm going to pay over $200 to upgrade it.

(though, admittedly, I like the new single point for CityWater/WaterPump... which makes for much less 'turning' of the valve since most of what you are going to do is either of these two anyway)

This was a SERIOUS point of contention for me with my GDRV. In order to fix the leak I had to literally tear down the plastic 4-way valve and replace it with a brass assembly that I purchased at ACE hardware, then retrofit some of the fittings to get it work. It's fine now, but if I had it to do all over again, I'd choose this for $220 in a minute.
