Electric Step

Hi all,
We dewinterized, and went to Courteney (Vancouver Island) for a week
Had an awesome time, and met my 6 day old Grandson. Had 2 minor issues with the M/H
Had a kinked line in the cold water hose to the Kitchen sink (under slide) This only occurs with the slide extended. I reached through the bottom of the slide, and dekinked the hose.
I think I need to extend the hose, but hope for a solution from the group, prior to the hose weakening and splitting? The other minor problem was the Quikee single step, male/female plug was gathering water inside the female connector. Although this plug has a rubber seal, water was still getting in (maybe a cracked case?) This water caused the step to intermittantly get stuck in both positions. Should I simply tape the plug with electrical tape, or replaced the plug?
Our camp season has begun. So stoked:-)
Happy Camping to all,
Ted

Add some electrical contact grease to inside of plug, helps keep moisture out.

Thank you Brian, I will give the electrical grease a try:-)
Anyone have a suggestion for the kinked cold water hose?
Thanks again,
Ted

maybe get a piece of rubber heater hose and split it long ways and add to water line like a splint. Use hose clamps or plastic tie wraps to secure in several spots to help spread bend pressure out passed damaged area.

Replace it now when there is no major problem. Otherwise one night in the dark - flood. Happened to a friend of mine - used a 75 cent piece of clear hose where his under the sink filter should be (to expensive to buy a new one) with poor clamps.
His wife woke up about 3 am to find the floor of the coach covered with water BUT all the compartments below were soaked and trays and boxes were full of water - was on town water so never heard the pump.
Saved 75 cents though.
