With the location of the front black and gray tank, I would assume that only the toilet goes into the black tank in our trailer. They would only have to use a couple feet, if that, of tubing to route...

DOH!!!

Metric!

Once I got away from Home Depot, and went to a family-owned place, we found it in minutes.

Home Depot had one of those tools setting out, where there is a sample nut and...

Tried.

I can get one that has the right threads, but wobbles the whole way on, or one that is just a bit too small to fit over the threads. I bought one of the smaller one and am trying to dremel...

It is close to a 1/2" with course thread, but not quite.

Anyone have any idea what size it is and...

We are full time, and don't even own a vehicle to tow it, so it has to be repaired at the rv park.

I need a replacement panel that holds the tank dump valve handles.

One of our hoses had a leak, and black tank valve started to wobble, so previous owner hired someone to fix it. Their fix was to leave the leak leaking, and put a large washer on both sides of the...

Well, found the valves, exactly where you said!

I still use an anti-backflush in-line on the outside hose. Same purpose, no chance of flooding.
