T Funnel Pictures

I have heard several people on the forums talk about a T funnel they made to make filling their fresh water tank easier. Please post picture of anything you use to make filling your fresh water tank easier. I am starting a list of Mods I would like to complete over the winter, thanks! Y'all are all great and I can't wait to see what is out there.

I have never used the on board water system on our Trillium, but other r/v's we've owned I have often used a short piece of white potable water hose, length depending on your needs, but cut the piece from the female end on the hose leaving the female hose fitting with the short (cut off) piece. Often, I've made this cut on a bias to (hopefully) get the water to flow better. Attach this cut off hose to a longer piece to another potable water hose and use this to fill your trailer tank. There are other ways to fill the tank, this is just one idea.

Tom one thing you should know about Doug is that he will not camp anywhere that they do not do take out food del'v. :-)

I can't help you as to what a t funnel is as I have no idea either! LOL Although I do tend to fill my water tank fairly frequently. I use an attachment that goes onto the end of the hose to do it and it works just fine. You can purchase them from Camping world for about $3.

No matter how you fill it, where you fill it, it just seems like you shouldn't drink it. And how about those Iowa Hawkeyes. I have seen them loose to lesser teams three touch downs ahead.

That's what I use, the one with the shut-off valve. It works great!

I am just guessing that a T funnel would be a funnel that changes direction? So in other words, you would be filling something where if you used a regular funnel, the funnel's opening would be pointing sideways and not "up" like it should be.

Maybe a T funnel is like if you took a 2-liter bottle and put the small end into the horizontal opening (where the funnel would go) and then instead of cutting off the bottom of the bottle (which would make the opening sideways and duplicate the non-function of a regular funnel), you would cut a hole in the side of the bottle and thus end up with a funnel that "turns" the liquid 90

Just guessing!

Smile Free funnel

I just use what I guess you would call an "L" funnel. I use a soft drink plastic bottle, 12 or 20 oz, washed and rinsed out well, cut an opening in the side with a knife or a heavy scissors, hold the bottle mouth against the tank opening and pour your liquid into the side opening.

If I put in water with a garden hose, I just squirt it in. No adapter needed.

People will sell you things you don't really need if you are observant.

$2.33 for a transmission funnel: Amazon.com: Blitz 06064 Transmission Funnel: Home Improvement: Reviews, Prices & more

"It adjusts to any angle, so you can pour with perfect precision. The funnel is made of durable high-density polyethylene, making it rust- and dent-proof. This extra-long, flexible funnel is ideal for those hard-to-reach jobs. "

If nothing else, maybe it will give you an idea how you can make your own.

Thanks, this has given me a lot of food for thought. I'll post once I have a plan on what I'm going to do. But please keep the ideas and pictures coming.
