2006 "Fill Tank" bypass switch

I need to replace the Fill Tank switch in my rig, it's leaking and getting progressively worse. First let me saw Fleetwood was no help.

The valve handle is about 3 inches long and black, there are two positions Fill Tank and Bypass. I would like the name of the manufacturer and P/N if possible. Fleetwood said it was no longer made and gave me a picture of a replacement valve that looks like the little chrome shut off valve on your bathroom sink. One would think they would have the manufacturers name in their archives even if it were no longer made.

If I can get the manufacturer and P/N, I feel confidant I can find one on the net. Or in lieu of that, an RV outlet selling used parts may have one. But I can't do much research without the maker and P/N.

Thanks for any help and your time.

No, I wish it were. This valve is 3 inches long, maybe 3/8 inch wide and black. I tried to attach a photo but I screwed something up.

From what I understand about the valve is that over time there are a couple of nylon components inside the valve that get damaged if the valve is operated under pressure and the best and easiest way to repair it is to simply replace the innards rather than attempt to remove the valve. As usual, the valve is mounted in such a way as to make replacement of it almost impossible without major work.

It's probably just a simple on/off water valve, so any kind would do. Some use a diverter-type, though. A diverter is a Tee with a valve, whereas the simpler shutoff bypass is an inline type that simply lets the water bypass the pump. That's what my '04 Tradition had.

If you insist on the identical valve, Rev Group (Fleetwood) parts can probably supply it.

From your description it sounds like a Kant Leak value. They are made by Anderson Brass in SC and the innards are fairly easy to replace. They have excellent instructions that come with the innards. Cost about $25 for replacement part.
You can get help on their website, just Google Anderson Brass.
Hope that helps.

I think he mentioned that Fleetwood (REV) was no help in locating a replacement in his 2nd sentence.

Sorry - I missed the comment that Fleetwood couldn't help. Seems odd, since new coaches have a similar (if not identical) city fill (bypass) valve.


If Rev/Fleetwood can't help, take the old one out and go to a plumbing supply house. It's a standard plumbing item except for the labeling.


Here's a 10-pack on Amazon:

Do you know what kind of piping you have? My valve is a simple in and out on PEX tubing. I bought a replacement at an RV supply store. I was sure it had to be a 3 way before I got a look at it.
