Water System

When we got out '93 13' Scamp last summer it was in need of much care. Several systems were in complete disrepair including the water-works.

The lines were completely filled w mildew and mold. The tank (original 10 gal) was much the same but there was no way to get inside to clean it.

So I ditched it all and opted for one of my own making. I have 2 4-gal tanks and ordered some great disconnects that are no drip when disconnected and offer a great flow rate when they are.

I can also take them out and use them table top with the original valve fittings.

Did you also hook up a hot water heater to your system?

Are you using the sink as well with one of your tanks being a gray tank?

Thx

I was thinking about doing this for my U-Haul, whose tank had been removed. Post some idiot proof details please, like names of connectors.

Looks like a great - and versatile - set up.

As an after thought - one trick for accessing the interior of the stock tank is to put an inexpensive marine style deck hatch in it. I did this with ours for the express purpose of being able to clean it out. If you still have the old tank you might hang on to it with this as an option for later use.
Who knows - you might want to do some extended boon docking someday.
