Many of us have had a hose break and flood the RV or the ground around the RV. So, you learn to shut the water off when ever you leave.
But, how many of us have had a NEW
hose come apart and flood something. Well it happen to me today. I shut the water off before we went to town and did not turn it back on right away after we returned. DW used the bathroom and used the pump to flush the toilet. The pressure blew the hose off the connector. No problem, just add a hose clamp right, hook the hose back up and test for leaks. Wrong.... again the DW went use the water and asked if I had turned on the water. I had and she said no water. I ran out side to check and there was 80 psi water was coming right off the hose bib. It seems the connectors real soft tin and distorts real easy and there is not much of gripping surface on the chrome parts. Luckily for me I have cement floor and drain so no real damage was done.
After the cleanup...
I call Camco and they are aware of the problem... The fix is to fire the supplier and do the work in house. When I asked why do you not use brass fittings, the rep told me to read Prop 65 for Calif. Which is, "everything you touch or use will cause cancer". Go figure.
My repair will be brass fittings and some good clamps.
