Anybody know of a place in the OC that has a really good stock of these? Been to Home Depot and Lowes but their supply is limited.

Nice place Gary! Kinda a mom and pops shop but they had everything you would need for your rig:dude:

Well, the fittings worked out great! I "T"d into my drain lines off of each fresh water tank. There is NOT 1 cup of water left in them when the pump runs dry:vib:

I meant to do that mod on my last 2 trailers but never got around to it. Always pissed me off to get home and still have 20 gals left in the tanks when the pump ran dry.:buford:

Now on to my next small problem :f

The fittings on the side of the tank look like they were spun welded in. I caped them with brass plugs when I rerouted my fresh water pick up to the drain tube.

The fitting on the rear tank did not seal or has developed a slight leak? Some other fittings have what looks to be a light blue epoxy smeared around them. It is still somewhat pliable. I have the clear (white) plastic tanks.

Anybody know of a good sealant to use around the fitting to stop the leak?:buford:

Maybe look up a local body shop that has a "plastic welder". I've been told in the past that there isn't a viable way to repair those milky white tanks, but that was second hand info. I might try an adequate pipe fitting plug, made of plastic or nylon, and wrap the threads w/ some teflon tape, or smear some silicon on the plug and let dry.

Gary, it is the actual round threaded bung that goes on the side of the tank. The plug is sealing fine.
