Don and Jim, unless you're trying to keep every thing original it may be an idea to upgrade to something that's current on the market and easy to replace again if it breaks.

Very true Dave. Although original would be nice I am really just looking for something that will fit without any or much mods.

From finding all these same items on other sites, I know they are 3 /12" square outside dimensions.

I am actually considering this, Dave. My thoughts right now are like Don's, and wanting to be able to retrofit without any other work. If I end up having to do other body work, and painted the exterior, I will likely go with updated versions, and do the glass repair needed.

The only garden hose drain I could fine, is not housed in a hatch like the original though.Like mentioned earlier, I am considering building in a grey water holding container, something that could be easily dumped, maybe using a quick connect garden hose fitting. Lots like these type fittings around.

You could also put a City Water hatch and change your hose to have the male end. It shouldn't leek since it's not under pressure.

I thought of just using the hatch, and converting it to a female fitting. They did it with the city water and drain reversed, so as not to mix them up when connecting. I would imagine my daughter and future SIL would be able to figure it out either way though.

Still in the planning stage with my trailer though. Once I bring it home, final plans will have to be figured out, in order to have it done for her, for May 02.

I want to thank everyone for the advice and links. On Sat I managed to drive to a RV dealer who is South of me. ( RV Warehouse) I really wanted to see it they had anything in stock. I managed to match the hatch for the power cord. I am changing the three other hatches to round boxes/covers. The mounting of the water ones should fit as the old ones are pretty close together.

Don, had you considered this type power connector if you were changing the other ones to round?

Do you think that the round ones will cover your existing cut-outs okay? This is my main reason for not going that way, as it would mean doing some body work.

I already replaced it with the square one. The back is round as it goes into the trailer so the round one would have worked good.

So my idea of using the City Water hatch for the sink and changing the hose end to a male will not work. There is a one way valve in the City Water one so it would not allow the sink to drain. Back to the catalogues.

Do you know if all the holes are round? My trailer is out at our land, and I can't check.

Don, couldn't the built-in check valve be defeated by drilling or removal?

Don,
Please keep the other hatches. I'd like to get them from you one way or another.

Going to have a look at the valve tonight to see if it is removable. I know I can get and adapter for the threads.

Will do Roy. I'll be as careful as I can taking the others off but they are pretty brittle.

The power cord was a large round hole. The city water and sink drain are round olds with a neck on them. So there is a tube about 1 1/2" that it goes through. I'll go have a look and take a pic.
