2015 Newmar Baystar Water Hose

We just purchased a 2015 Baystar Sport 2903. The only way to feed the fresh water hose to the campground water connection is to crack the bay door open and feed it through the opening. Has anyone had someone modify the floor of the bay by adding a cutout with proper cap to feed the hose through? We are concerned about keeping the bay door open and giving access to rodents when we are in the mountains or wooded areas. Thanks in advance.

coloradogirl --

The wet bay on my coach has a "gasketed slot" on the bottom part of the wet bay frame to hold my water hose.

I thought this "slot" would be a standard item on all Newmar coaches (?)

Ours has the slot at the bottom of the wet bay. The cover with the slot raises and the hose is pushed into the wet bay from the bottom.

Have you looked for the slot (cutout) at the bottom of the door frame. A friend just picked up his new Bay Star and didn't know he had the slot, just didn't see it.

Our 2019 Canyon Star had a circular 3" plug in the floor of the wet bay. We fed the water hose through there. I used to pack steel wool around the hoses to keep critters from using opportunity to visit us. Ours was right in front of water connections.

Thanks for suggestions. There is a cut out for electrical but not for plumbing. Bottom of bay had no slots. I am wondering if this was a Newmar oversight. Going to give them a call.

A pic of your wet bay floor would be helpful. I suspect Newmar provided a path for the fresh water hose and you're just overlooking it.

The port on the CS actually had plastic fingers to limit egress of visitors. I never felt they were adequate and resorted to old school tactics.
