Hello all, Just wondering if anybody has replaced their water supply hose?
I am just filling the tank to make sure everything is in working order and there ya go... a leak... 1980 - 17' Boler... looks like it is a very old hose. I checked inside and everything looks peachy and well sealed at the floor area before heading outside so to speak. Does anybody know if there is a kit for just replacing the exposed outside section? Looks pretty straight forward and well my RV place is closed at this time so thought I would chat on this forum. Many thanks to anybody who may have some wisdomly thoughts....Kathy

I am confused as to which tank you are referring to. The water supply hose will fill your freshwater tank. Your sink drain goes to your grey water tank.

In either case, you could just buy a piece of the appropriate sized hose and replace it. Don't forget to check your vent tubes while you are at it.

My question is ... can you see where the leak is?

Hi Roy...my mistake, yes it is the fresh water tank and yes it is very obvious where the leak is. The pipe comes through the floor from the interior and does a gentle loop into the fresh water tank - it is sealed there with a pipe clamp...the leak is right at the gentle bend in the hose. Since the hose in the trailer is in good shape and well sealed at the floor... I would like to cut it on the exterior side under the floor, put an insert of some sort in, hose clamp those fittings then attach it at the fresh water tank end using a new hose clamp. I am trying to not have to replace the whole length of filler hose from the body of the trailer on through.
Guess I am wondering what insert I could use that would support the hose clamps
