Wanderso, You were the only one, to chime in on my problem , that I was having with my FILL VALVE.
And I thank You ,again.
I made phone calls to General RV in Brownstown ,Mi. and even called winnebago directly.
General told me , they were out of stock on that valve , they also told me that the manufacture (Winnebago ) , was in the same boat ,no stock.
When I called winnebago ,after getting no where ,I was finally directed to
"Max " ,I guess He was a tech, He was very helpful, He told me they had 5 valves in stock. I wonder why I was told by General RV that there was none to be found ? Even thou ,He didn't solve my problem, Max , gave me some good pointers.
Max connected me to parts , I was put on hold , then I was told, to leave my info,which I did .
Some 5 hours later, I did talk to parts , was told the part would cost $24.00 dollars, plus shipping , would take anywhere from 5 to 7 days ,
after they got it from their warehouse. Needless to say I was not a happy
Camper ( pun intended).
Well Here's what I did to fix the problem, I went to my good friend,and master plumber buddy, Mike Mango ,of Mango Plumbing ,of Redford MI.
Sorry if plugs are not allowed.
The little plastic nut, just under the handle is what cracked.
My remedy was a Nut from a Delta pop up assembly
,the kind you have in your bathroom sink. It's the nut that holds the popup rod to the drain tube. The threads were a perfect match , the only problem was the hole in the nut ,was a wee bit to large, so I added a thin washer to make the hole smaller.
Now who wooda thunk it.
If you went your local plumber, and had to buy a complete popup Assembly , you could have this fix done in ,literately ,10 minutes,just pry off the little handle ,remove the busted plastic nut, put what I just described ,and presto your back in business.
All this was done after ,I busted my knuckles , took the entire panel completely out, to access and remove the valve. I spent many , many hours to finally figure out this simple fix, so others won't have to go through what I did.
I truly hope nobody has this problem ,but if they do ,now they know the rest of the story.
Now we are off to ARIZONA,(Fingers crossed )
