outside water spigot

Hello All-We just picked up our 1999 Casita SD 17' yesterday, and the first thing we need to tackle is to replace the water spigot on the outside.
We would love any and all advice! Thanks, Jean & Mike

Go to Little House Customs and click on store .They sell parts for your Casita and they sell the outside water connection (I know because I just purchased the outside water connection from them for my Casita) The owners of Little House Customs is Larry Gamble

Hi Steve-Thanks for that information. I looked on their website, but only saw the outside connection, not the drain spigot. I will call them to check. I did, however, see lots of other cool stuff, particularly the screen covers. The previous owners tell me they're had a problem with mud daubers, so I will order those covers. Thank you so much for your help, and for letting me know about them as a resource!
Jean

outside water spigot

I put a hot/cold outside hookup on mine. I'm a fan of it. Great for cleansing off cookstoves, feet, etc.

I got it from rvdirect.com. Larry is full of good info though, it's worth talking to him about other helpful upgrades, also. He will know the best way and parts needed to fully install it on your casita.

This gives you a drain valve/hose bib.

In the 90's Casita mounted the water tank drain on the outside the trailer and the sun eats up the plastic. The valve is like most tank drains (white plastic) but it has a mounting flange to mount to the side of the trailer. Most found in RV stores do not have the mounting flange. You can get the valve from Casita . When you order it get several since the are prone to breakage and get brittle from the sun. I think some have come up with a mod. to move the valve inside the trailer or like LK's mod.
Like with Scamp get a list of stuff you need when ordering from the factory to save on shipping. They have no parts website you have to call them.

Ohhhh, ignore my post. I didn't know we were talking about a fresh water tank drain.

The stock Casita drain valve has a 1/2 inch pipe thread cap on it. One can screw a laundry bibb right onto that and have both a drain valve and a place to connect a hose for filling the tank.

This is the drain valve that is on the late 90's Casita 16 I have. Also it can be found on E Bay.

I had to replace one like Eddie pictured on my class A years ago as the plastic gave out. I put the same type back on. On a whim one day I covered it with a piece of tin foil to form fit...kind of. Never came off during road trips and the plastic was still in good shape and working ten years later. That's ten years in the desert too. I think only one person ever asked why it was covered, just wasn't really noticeable.
