Water Selector Valve

The water selector valve for city water/fill tank at the water servicing area is broken. I am looking for the part number and a source for this valve.

Fairly common Pex plumbing part--thought it was a 2 or 3-way valve but actually its just an on/off elbow--once you take it apart you will see how simple/cheap it is...any RV store/shop should have one---like Camping World.....

I don't have the part number, but it is a 1/2" right angle Flair-It valve. Many RV parts stores will have Flair-It parts. You might find it easier to remove the cap and replace the stem and seals than to remove the whole valve. Once you see the new valve you will see what I am talking about. Removing the PEX tubing from the barb is not easy, especially where it is located.. Removing the cap is easy. The stem is the same as the stem in the straight valve, which is easier to find.

On second thought--consider just replacing the valve with an inlet/fill pipe similar to the black flush inlet [check out inlets at CW]. You will need to block off the PEX line to the house/city side, then use the new inlet in the hole vacated by the valve, to exclusively fill the fresh water tank--no more valves.....
