City/Water diverter valve

I am certain I need to replace the fresh water, fill valve behind the wall in the wet bay. I was wondering if anyone can tell me if I'm on the right track ordering this valve and is 1/2 inch the right dimension. We full time so I would like to have the correct valve on hand and do it all in one day. Any thoughts on the valve or the process appreciated.

The valve you show would operate correctly, however the valve in my RED had a flange that was cast into the valve body that had two tapped holes for screws to hold it to the wet bay face plate. After much searching the only place I could find the valve with the flange was through Tiffin Parts. There was a post recently describing how to attach the valve you show to the face plate but I could not find it today. You might do a better search than I did.

Thanks for the reply. I had not thought of the connection to the wall by the two screws. I will do a search and see if I can find the thread you mention.

I found the post I mentioned above. It was by SargeW dated 10/27. I tried to import it here but was unsuccessful. Hope it helps.

Before you replace the valve, file about 1/8" off of the handle stop area tab on the "City Water" side allowing it to close further. I had the same issue with our Allegro RED and it totally stopped the tank from filling when on city water. It's worth a try because the valve is going to be a job to replace.

Thanks for the replies and the link to the other thread. I will also try Lt Dan's suggestion as it makes sense and would love for that to be the issue.

I have a deadline I'm dealing with as right now we are in Florida but have to head north for surgery on my shoulder. We will be in freezing temps so I don't want to have any issues with water during that time and I won't have use of my arm for several weeks.

I dread this project for the work it will take just removing the panels not to mention I have added a water softener, electric gates for the black and grey tanks, remote switch for tanks and a few other things. I have a feeling it will all have to come out. I guess on the positive side, it will allow me to take a fresh look at how I have all of the water lines and items run in the bay and better organize.

Not sure when Tiffin started installing the Water Miser system but if your bus is new to you, I would check that as well. If you have a blue circle window in your shower, you have a Water Miser. If that valve is in the wrong position, it will fill your tank as designed to save water. It doesn't care if you are fully connected or not using the fresh water tank.

OP here. I got all of the panels out today, it was quite a lot of work and took a ton of pictures so I can put it all back together again. Amazing seeing what all is behind it and how all the wires and hoses are routed. Like a lot of projects, I am going to over engineer a few things while I am in there and have it torn a part. Going to sand and paint the panels before I put them back in, being a 2014, there was some rust on the edges and around the "words" they CNC into the panels. I'm also going to add some supports and cut the vertical panel so I can remove on certain sections as needed, in the future.

Hope to have it all buttoned up by the end of Sunday. Lot's of pictures if anyone is interested in anything specific.

Here's a modification another member made. The wet bay panels in the 2018 and later coaches are two piece with a removable inner section and he modified his similarly. He cut the inner section away then added bolts and support braces to fasten the new inner panel to. That made it much easier to remove in the future.
