City water leak fix

Well, had a problem with the city water connection leaking after connecting the hose. I searched all over the Internet and could not find how to fix the problem. I'm here to let you of a quick logical possible fixed. It was actually quite embarrassing. When we disconnected the hose, we did not notice that the washer on the hose had fallen off on the ground.

So if you have to disconnect the hose to let hot water run through because the sun had warmed up the water, make sure that when you reconnect to the RV that the washer is in the hose nozzle

We are newbies and only got our new RV about 3 weeks ago. It is our first ever RV, and it's a 43-foot'r and I LOVE IT.

Good tip. I always carry spare washers in my plumbing kit. Don't leave city water hydrant on when away from your camper, a line can let go and you'll come back to a flood of biblical proportions!

I was always having problems tighten the hose/city water connection so I installed a brass 90* elbow on city water and on black tank flush connections.

Leave them ON all the time and not just hook up hose to the elbow.
It relieves the 'strain' on connections and is so much easier to tighten
