90° Water Connector – Product Review

posted in: All Posts, Plumbing, Product Review | 2
Seems simple, at full service camp sites just connect the fresh water hose to the water inlet on the side of your trailer, turn on the tap and you have an endless supply of fresh water into your trailer, but let’s consider a few few things.  That hose sticking straight on the side places a lot of stress on that little plastic inlet fitting, wouldn’t take much to crack or break it right off your trailer, or maybe you are outside cooking or returning from a walk on the beach, rather than go inside the trailer wouldn’t it be nice to fill up the pot or wash your feet off outside.


 

 

There are several products on the market that are worth taking a look at, first is a very simple 90° elbow, install the elbow onto the inlet then connect the hose to the elbow.  The advantage of this is that the hose comes up from the bottom and exerts far less stress on the fitting, but what about filling that pot or bucket with water or washing your dirty feet.


 

 

The solution is this combination 90° fitting with a faucet connected to it.  I have been using the Camco 22463 90° Water Faucet this year and have really found it convenient.  Just like the elbow you connect the faucet to the trailer water inlet then connect the hose to the faucet, but there is more….


Finally have you every consider what would happen if one of your water lines leaked inside your trailer while you were away for the day?  I know many owners that turn the water main off but those campground taps can be hard to turn, hidden in bushes, or just inconveniently located at the back of the campsite.  The easy solution is to install an inline garden hose shut off between the hose and the elbow, now you can conveniently turn the supply of water on and off.

    I like this idea especially including the outside shut-off section. We usually stay at Provincial Parks which here in Ontario don’t have water hook-ups at each site but it would be handy for other times and takes up no room. great
