Help Needed Please - National RV water manifold needed or need to rebuild/redesign

I am in need of help. I just upgraded myself to National Seaview with supposedly no problems. The Watts water manifold distribution block is cracked and leaking. I am in need of a spare Watts manifold or someone that can guide me through redesigning a new one.

I contacted Watts directly, they no longer make the part and our out of stock.

Any help or advice is appreciated. Thanks

There are a number of manifold options that could be adapted to replace your original part. Count how many 'branches' you need, then add one for a spare. If your plumbing is flexible and long enough it shouldn't be that tough a job to put in a new manifold. Just be sure to label all lines before dismantling the old one! I had one valve on mine start to leak, I was able to swap the line to a spare tap and seal off the leaking one.

What did you end up doing with the part? We just discovered we have a leak in that same manifold.

Hey everyone. New to site and new to rv'ing. I have a 99 tradewinds as well. The original water distribution has been replaced with a black pipe manifold system which was put away wet as well. I have water flowing everywhere. I purchased a water distribution panel from visone in KY. The unit is from a 2002 model Tradewind. Not sure what the 2002 manifold looks like, is it a watts unit as well? Does anyone have an all encompassing schematic on either machines? Thanks Grant

Still no luck

Thanks Everyone, I was hoping to find the original but I haven't had any luck. My leak is not horrible but enough to aggravate me. Please let me know if anyone replaced the module with a home made one. thanks
