Dripping City Water Connection

Good afternoon -

On our last campout I noticed our city water connection (2015 Flight 32 BHDS) had a pretty rapid and constant drip (3-4 drips per second).

Any recommendations to troubleshoot appreciated!

Many thanks,
Dave

I personally don't like how they "recommend" you install the filter: attach flexible hose protector to your camper and then the filter (just as you've pictured it). I think there is too much stress on the plastic hose nut. I install the flex hose protector at the faucet, then the filter, then the hose that runs to the city water connection on camper.

Also make sure your rubber washer is in place between the city water connection hookup and the hose.

Did you test the water pressure at the site?

Pressure regulator was installed at the faucet. Washer (with a screen) was in the city water connection. But I don't believe I tried swapping it out with a new one. I should do that.

I use a elbow at the connection..THEN the flex hose THEN the filter

I'm also looking into picking up a 90-degree connector to go directly into the city water connection. This will allow the filter to hang straight down with no stress on the connection. I still prefer the filter to be the "last step" in the water flow since there could be "stuff" in the white flex hose.

I also use a brass elbow at the TT connection, plus, you need to replace the rubber gasket fairly often if you connecting and disconnecting often. Be sure to use the rubber ones, not the plastic gaskets you often find. If it's cold out you may also need to use a pliers to tighten it just a smidge tighter than you can do by hand.

If the gasket doesn't help, look at the end of the short hose for the least bit of deformity. I've got a 10' hose with similar ends, and it always drips, no matter what I do.
