Hi! We have a 1975 Trillium 1300 and live in Pennsylvania. We haven't been able to locate a 12v waterpump/faucet kit with maintain switch.

We've heard about this and checked online and our local rv accessories stores.

Thanks for any help you can give us.

Hi John,

I just put a pressurized system in my Scamp. I bought the pump at Camping World, switch for about $3.00 at NAPA and the faucet, on sale, at Home Depot. You can usually save money if you can find what you need at places other than a camper supply store.

Hi Patrick...On Gord 100's website he calls the electric pushbutton on the faucet the "maintain switch". (push on,push off)

John, I installed an electric water pump and faucet with switch and posted the info here, but I think it got eaten by the "Big Crash of '06". I will re-create it now in a new thread and it might help you: http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/index.ph...mp;#entry219963

When looking for parts, this catalogue is my favourite research resource....

Pump combination similar to what Gord shows on his website centre of this page item 749005

As Patrick shows in his thread the faucet is on the next page of the catalogue, but they don't seem to list it as a kit like he had.

Most RV shops can get anything from this catalogue on fairly short notice, or you can order direct from them. Starting page for catalogue is go-rv.com

To all who responded to our call for help...thanks so much for all the good information.

Not sure yet which solution we'll use, but leaning towards the pump/faucet kit seen in the catalog suggested by Charlie. Looks like just the thing for us.

Thanks again.

John and Valerie

Okay, I have to ask. What the heck is "Gord 100's website"?

Hi Patrick...Wish I could send you a link to Gord's webpage (something else we don't know how to do).

Anyway...If you type Good 100's Trillium Trailer Webpage in Google you'll find a link to
Gord's webpage. I don't understand the why of "Good" and "Gord", but there are links to his various trailer projects.

I don't remember how my husband found this (nor does he), but it's a pretty useful site with lots of pictures. Now if only John and I were at all handy.

Valerie

Thanks Valerie. Unfortunately I didn't have any luck with Google finding the website, using Good and Gord and combinations thereof.

To put a web address into a message just highlight the address in the browser address field (I use Ctrl-A), then copy Ctrl-C, and paste into the message Ctrl-V.

But don't go to a bunch of trouble on my account, as I think I have too many websites to visit as is!

Here is a link to Gord100's Trillium Website.

Gord was one of the earliest to make mods to his trailer and then post them to the web to share with others. Most of the changes he show's here were done a number of years ago.

He is a regular at the Emily Bolerama gathering in Ontario and also one of the early members on the Bolerama Message Board on Delphi Forums.

This: "gord100's", did the Google job! Top of the nine-hit list! But man, he needs to reduce the size of his graphics!
