1990 Jayco 1006 water jug missing

I purchased and have been refurbing a Jayco 1006 made in 1990. I noticed a disgustingly dirty clear hose running from under my pump faucet to the cabinet across from the sink. I assume there used to be some sort of water tank or jug in that cabinet. My owners manual that I found and downloaded thanks to this forum's information says next to nothing about the water system.

My questions are: Can I get a replacement jug that will work for water in case I camp at a place without hookups? If there is a place to purchase please let me know where because I have scoured the internet with no luck. If there are special aspects to it I need to look for let me know as well as I can probably rig something if I know what to get at the hardware store.

If and when I find a jug -- how in the world and I going to clean that disgusting hose?

Is it a hand pump type faucet. Of so, the hose should just slip on a fitting on the faucet. Not sure if a regular water jug could be rigged or not.

Hopefully someone with a similar setup will chime in.

It is attached to the pump facet and snakes around to the cabinet directly across. It has a fitting on it so I'm sure it screws into a tank or jug of some sort.

And yes it's a hand pump facet. All original.

Our 03 Qwest 10X that we recently traded in, had what looked like a 5-6 gallon jug that just sat under a dinette bench. There was no external fill port, so, we would have to remove the jug to fill it up.

Water jug type changes?

The Jayco dealer tells me they only have parts back to 1992. That said -- would anyone know if the water jug assembly would be the same for a 1992 Jayco 1006 and a 1990 Jayco 1006?

It would probably fit, but there is no way to tell for certain without trying. Jayco trailers are sometimes more like stick built houses than automobiles. They will use whatever parts are available (or cheapest) that fit; so it is not unusual to have somewhat different parts even within a model year.


Are you trying to do a refurb back to factory stock? If not, I would look at any option that works, including moving the tank closer to the hand pump. Or if you are adding electric, using a 12v pump and upgrading to pressure plumbing.
You might also want to consider converting over to a cap and siphon that fits on a standard 5 gallon water cooler jug. That would make getting potable water anywhere you travel pretty easy. I have one of these sitting around in the basement since we sold a cottage; been thinking about installing in our TT for filling up water bottles.


As far as the disgusting hose goes, why clean it? If it is simply clear nylon type hose, take a bit of it with you to Lowes or Home Depot and buy a new length in the same size (inner diameter is what matters most) and replace the nasty original. You'll feel much better knowing that the hose is fresh and clean, and this hose isn't very expensive.

I'd just rig something up if it were me. But ideally, I'd find a way to run it outside to a blue tote tank.

Ask Jayco for the measurements on the tank and then measure the space in your trailer to see if it will work. I think they were the same but that was a long time ago.
