  1. Alright! All good information and I'm bookmarking the Home Depot pages for the crimpers and clamps. I'll note where the access holes go. I'm becoming puffed up about the ability to fix some plumbing issues myself. And in reply to John's post, this is exactly how I learned the fittings were leaking in the first place. Wet paper towels slipped under the fittings. I didn't have the blue towels but I'm sure they work better than Brawny whites I had on hand. Also, I'm the wife in this case so I give myself full permission to buy any tools we need. Ever since my husband learned he's par
  2. Hi Susan. You may already know this but the valves and fittings you use to configure the trailer for boon docking and winterizing are underneath the bed on the curbside of the trailer. You'll need to remove the mattress or cushions covering the banco and expose the plumbing underneath.
