You may have seen my previous post regarding a drip I had in my outdoor kitchen where the cold water hose connects to the sink.
Well, I had "fixed" it by replacing the ring inside the connection. Last weekend we could smell a funky smell but couldn't find anything.
Later we opened up the outdoor kitchen and found the source. The leak was back; and mold had grown inside and rotted the insert where the sink and burner slide out.
It is a 2012 Passport 3220BH that was bought new in 2013. According to the dealer it is no longer under warranty.
Frankly, we don't use the water in the outdoor kitchen; so if there were a simple valve to close and prevent this from recurring I would/will.
I went in search of such a valve under the camper; however, there is a protective cover preventing access.
I need a permanent solution to this issue so that I'm not dealing with this issue.
Here are my questions:
1. Is there such a valve to turn off water to the outdoor kitchen?
2. What is the best way to resolve the bad connection? I broke off two of the little ribbed pieces on the black plastic connector, so I'm thinking I may need to replace the connection and/or hose.
3. Any other advice?
We keep the camper at a resort year round; and ultimately, I'd like to have these hoses go to a larger separate sink vs the stock sink; so if anyone has any ideas as to how to incorporate that into the solution I'd love to hear them.
I have attached pics of the damage.
