Can anyone tell me what this is (see arrow)? We opened the cover and there is a sock shoved in a hole that isn't hooked to anything.
The camper is a 78 Burro 13'

Thanks!

Yep, it is a gravity fill for your water tank. Meaning you open it and put your garden hose in it and let it fill up the tank there is a little hole with a hose that lets the air out of the tank as it fills with water I just got rid of mine as I am repainting the trailer and I didnt want someone using it for an ashtray or dumping somthing into my water tank, and it was hard to get to with the spare tire, so I got a Hatch with the gravity fill and city fill that locks, and moved it to the side, by my electrical shore conn. and my drain.

Hope this helps.

Scott

Rush,

It goes under the seat in back and is approx 10 gal. You can buy one from Scamp (http://shop.scamptrailers.com/p-382-10-gal...efore-1990.aspx )or an RV place like camping world www.campingworld.com

That appears to be a clean Burro, Rush. If you own or are thinking about buying, closely inspect the plywood floor that is sandwiched between the two fiberglass mats...the top one being visible under the rear bed/dinette in the storage areas. The potable water tank is located there as well. Find a crack or hole of some sort and probe under the mat with a screwdriver, etc. for soft or rotted plywood. Reason for my comment is that the fiberglass exterior of the pictured Burro appears to be crushed or damaged where the frame exits on the left side....a strong indication of a compromised floor. If you are contemplating purchase, replacing a Burro floor is a fairly extensive job and should be reflected in your price negotiations. Mine was just beginning to show fiberglass damage in the same area and my floor was completely rotten throughout.

Thanks Mike. I think what you're seeing is where the previous owner spray painted the bumper and failed to mask off the fiberglass. There's quite a bit of overspray.

I checked what I could of the floor & all seems good (thankfully)
