Are you referring to the city water connection? If so, there is most likely a back flow preventer behind the panel that will need to be separated from the fitting you see in front of the panel (the b/f preventer will not fit through the hole in the panel). I just had to replace mine and that was what I needed to do.

When you "unscrewed the old one", did you just remove the metal screws on the front, or did you also grasp the back and detach the water line (and any related part such as a check valve)?

The two screws are there to stabilize the fitting and as a beauty ring. Once you undue the screws, the unit needs to be pulled out and the hose disconnected from the back. It will either have a hose clamp or PEX clamp.

One of the reasons these go bad is you're always screwing and unscrewing a hose to it. Once you make the repair, go to your local hardware store and buy a brass garden hose quick connect. It's like an air hose quick connect. You just snap your hose on and pull back on the ring to release. You tighten on the quick connect once and never mess with it again. This keeps from wearing out the hose connection.

Mine has a threaded fitting on the back where the interior water line connects. Basically, once the threads loosen, the connector spins rather than loosening further, so you have to get a hand on the back and either hold it firm while you continue to unscrew the outer piece, or unscrew the fitting on the back itself while you hold the front tight.

If you can't pull it out far enough to grab the hose behind the inlet, you will have to reach up behind it. On some rigs you may have to remove a cover plate to get your hand behind there. Each one is a little different.

I don't know your motorhome but on my Triple E I had to access the fitting that connects to the back of it from under the bathroom sink. Quite easy to get to. Once undone I could then remove it from the outside.
