The shower valve was simple to instal without any problems. The brass valve body looks well built and operates smoothly. Both handles turn the same direction which takes a small getting used to but all is well. So much better than our OEM plastic valve, the fresh one adjusts easily and turns smoothly.
Amazing quality product! It's a shame that no company makes RV shower faucets that are created of metal. Everything is plastic, and not always amazing quality plastic. This one is plastic on the surround, but the inner workings are brass fittings, which is what we really wanted anyway. So far, it's working great, and less leaking! Amazing quality, and well worth paying a bit more to have the metal fittings. I think it will definitely latest longer than the cheap-o plastic stuff!
These are good. Not necessarily better than other wheel chock. Honestly a wheel chock is a wheel chock. However, the cord makes all the difference. When you kick these up under the tires and then jack a vehicle the chocks wedge up under there really tight. When the vehicle comes down the chocks need some support to come out. Yank the cord and you're done. I also like having a bright color chock so I don't forget they are there. Don't black ones. They'll blend in with the tires you're likely to forget. These are very noticeable. The chock itself is on par with others, but the features (cord and color) are what create it stand out.
Pros: Durable, Strong, Price, CordCons: Weight, Plastic= less frictionThis has been a amazing item. Have ordered two thus far as it has been a amazing chock for automotive use. Use one as for a truck in storage and another for cars I am currently working on. The cord helps to quickly grab the chock and pull it out from under the wheels. Haven't had any problems with this item yet. The bottom of the chock is smooth which does let some slippage but as soon as there is weight/pressure on chock, it settles down and limits the amount of movement on vehicles. Will again in future should I need more.
I bought this wheel chock to prevent my truck from slipping down an icy roadway during freezing weather at my mountain cabin. I have to park on the street above my cabin during inclement weather because my driveway is too iced up to drive on. This roadway has an incline and in the past, my truck slid backwards on the ice after putting the truck in park and setting the parking brake. I place this wheel chock behind the rear tire and it keeps my truck from sliding on the ice. The nice thing about the strap on the wheel is the wheel chock usually freezes to the street during the night and I can pull it loose when I need to remove the is chock is expensive, but worth the additional expense and I am going to another one so both wheels are chocked
These are lightweight and well-designed wheel chocks. I bought two of them years ago, then latest one and was satisfied to search that these were still available for purchase. Bought three more To secure my trailer which I started storing outdoors on a non-level surface.
I only had a set of little metal chocks that came with the floor jack I have so I went with a chock with a small more size. I bought these and am very satisfied with them. A nice bright red/orange color for visibility, comes with a little rope loop to hang on the wall or pull out from tire placement and sturdy construction. It has rows of ridges to keep versus the tire and on the bottom to prevent slipping. I'm sure the bottom ridges will work on surfaces but I'll have to wait until I use them to see if they slip or not on concrete / hard surfaces. I recommend this product.
First off, a million thanks to the folks who posted before me. It helped me create my choice. There are a lot of budget priced chocks out there and these are not gimmicky and weird in your hands when you keep them. Yes, plastic -- and I would have preferred rubber. HOWEVER, these are massive gauge and have nice wide ribs underneath that do grab the ground. I am one of those guys doing my work in a home garage, with the smooth concrete -- dangerous as far as sliding. These don't slide. I will be using them to secure my VW when jacking it up, and it's a amazing guess that these will be a tad more safe than my original "rock and a brick" arrangement! I went to the huge Auto parts chain shop (you know who I mean) and in addition to the rude thug who "assisted me" , I found their wheel chocks to be totally unacceptable. I wouldn't help a 10 speed BIKE on those things -- and neither should you. Store from home and spare yourself the Neanderthal experience at the store. Amazing chocks. I'm safer now.
Pros:The construction of the chocks seems solid and they look like they would latest a long e is low ns:These are very skinny/narrow. They don't even cover the tires of my Honda Accord, allow alone my e profile (height) of the chock isn't high enough to inspires any confidence about its stopping ey do not grip the floor well. At least the chocks I received did not have the little rubber boots that are typical on Rhino ramps, l in all, not a poor buy. The material and construction is good. How useful they actually are, depends on what you expect out of them.
We are full-timers and use this in the winter. We trade it off with a non-heated hose in the spring/fall. No added taste, and it was amazing to a verified -1F. No freezing, and doesn't cost much to run. I expect years of service out of it.
This is great! It works perfectly to fill the water tank quickly and without fuss or muss. It turns off and on easily and without leaking. And the clear hose is fun for the children becausethey can see it. I love it even more because I can obtain the small ones to manage it while I am doing something else nearby and they obtain to help. Win-win in my book!
This item is great. We sold our home much much faster than we thought and ended up living in our RV in Colorado starting in February of this year. We purchased this item and were skeptical, but cannot tell you how unbelievable it was to still have running water even when we hit 18 below zero in Golden, CO one night. Simple to install and works like a charm.
So, I've had this for a couple months. So far, so good. It's a small pricey, sure. Replacing damaged plumbing in the RV would be method more so. I would hold in mind that this thing is beautiful stiff, and really won't reach 50' due to the "perma-coil" effect; when stretched out it retains a bit of a "spiral". Mine reached 45'.
We have a travel trailer and frequently camp with our two young children at state parks and national lands in the Midwest. Hardly any have water hookups. This fill hose twists on easily to the water hose at the fill station and has a shut off valve dial on it. The fill hose sits secure in our 30ft Jayco trailer, I can insert the hose into the fill hole and allow go without it falling out. The shut off valve has worked amazing for us so far – we’ve had no issues with it as some other reviewers mentioned (maybe it was just a poor lot of that component?). I know that there are some versions on Pinterest of how to create one of these yourself, but the cost was worth not having to hassle with any of that. Ordering with Amazon prime created it easy, delivered straight to my door in 2 days (I’m a sucker for not having to lug the children to the store!). Worth it. If ours ever gets lost or damaged, I’ll be buying another one again for sure.
I bought this to fill my potable water tank up on my travel trailer. I used it this past week and it leaks when turned on or off. It is still better than not having anything. It is a "made in China" piece of junk. I would return it to amazon but I do not wish to waste the ink to print a return slip. I will use it until it breaks or I lose it. I can not search any thing better at this time. See if you can create one for $7.00. If not prepare to obtain your hands and shoes and pants and socks all wet!!
After doing research on different options for a heated hose I bought this one and am very satisfied with the purchase. We only plug it in when it is going to be under 40 degrees as noted in the manual. The plug lights up showing it is working. We remove the water filter system (sold separately) when the weather forecast reports 33 degrees or lower. We have no issues with it. At first we switched this one with our standard white RV hose when the cold weather was coming but it works so well we use as our basic now.
I have had two other heated hoses this winter that broke. One after a few months and its replacement broke when I installed it. The coupling broke. So Valterra has been working for a few months and so far, so good. I will be anxious to see how it holds up over the long run.
This plastic fast connect if excellent for RV. . .over the years I've had the metal ones. The ALWAYS become corroded. This one does not! Plust the advantage an extremely smooth action fast connect. . .what more could you want? I'm thrilled with this purchase.
Perfect replacement for near 30 year-old original new water connect that was dripping. Solid metal construction with nice white finish. Although original was square with rounded corners and held in put with four screws, the Valterra was essentially same diameter/size but completely round with only three mounting holes/screws. It was a amazing fit. Original served its purpose but was all plastic. The Valterra is solid build with brass check valve. Very satisfied.
Installed in mins and came with everything you need as advertised - we purchased a 15 year old pop up in amazing from a nice family, but the town water thingy..broke the 1st time we hooked it up. Got this delivered fast, in time to work on it for the weekend... Amazing items very happy
This installed easily and works amazing when connected to town water. However when dry camping I turned on the water pump to use the water from the water tank and water came out of this connection as the water lines were being pressurized. I never had this problem with the old town water connection. I’m assuming this is supposed to be a one method valve so I’m not sure why this happened. Will probably some kind of plug to plug this connection when dry camping.
It attaches to the water hose, and inserts down the new water gravity fill on the travel trailer about 6 inches or more. Create it very handy when filling the new water tank since it has it's on shut off valve. When the water tank is full, I can shut off the Fast Fill Pigtail w/ Shut Off, and then go to the water faucet to chop off the water at the 's long enough to stay down the new water fill without fear of it falling out. Without the Fast Fill, the water hose hardly fits inside the new water fill, and one must keep the hose the entire time the water tank is being filled. Once I got this device, it was turn on the water and allow it fill.
This is a very easy product that works great. My RV new water intake in smaller then a metal hose end and I had to "kink" the hose to stop the flow of water (shut off valve was impractical) so filling the tank was a large pain. I ended up getting soaked from "blow back" and had to stand and keep the hose while the 50 gal tank filled. The Valterra Fast Fill is a very easy product that's simply inserted into the new water filler neck. Turn on the valve and walk away. It stays inserted by itself so no more showers for me and I can go check the tires while the tank fills. (Wish I'd thought of it years ago)
This works fine and really helps in filling up my Airstream without having to turn the water on and off for the filler neck to "catch up". One note, it needs a hose "ring washer" or else it will leak/spray water around the connector (hence 4 instead of 5 stars). You could likely create a better one yourself, but if you are like me, you already enough "projects". So for the bucks, it was worth it to me.
Bought one of these when my son and family was going to visit and stay in my RV during an unexpected cold snap. It failed at the coupling during freezing weather. Ok, so maybe it was defective. Lost how a lot of gallons of water till it was shut off. So I replaced it. (Thanks, Amazon.) Installed the fresh one, and it failed, same put after less than two weeks. More water lost. My well is pressure regulated, so not overpressure. Both occurred during below freezing weather, which is why you a heated hose. I suspect excess heat softened the hose/glue and the coupling failed to hold. I do not recommend this hose, unless you like running outside in below freezing weather to shut off your spigot after ??? gallons of water spilled.
AND because of the fact that this hose never worked at all, which I didn't know, because I had faith that a hose that costs this much would work, period, I fear I cracked a block or something because there is waterleaking out from the bottom of my RV, and NOT from a normal drain hose, it's coming from underneath, e hose must never have heated, otherwise I wouldn't have a cracked tank in 4 days.I can't believe these heated hoses aren't tested before they are sold. It could be a matter of life or death, Not Buy From This Company. It's a gamble you don't wish to participate in.
These work until they don't and then you install a fresh one. They wear out more often when you travel a lot in your RV and are installing the water hose over and over. This is just like the original equipment and was an exact fit. It took longer to obtain the old one off than install the fresh one. It comes with everything you need, including the sealant.
Of the a lot of stuff I have skeptically purchased for my RV thinking they would be a waist of time and money, this one is a rare keeper. Basically, it makes filling your RV water tank a one person job. I assumed the plastic valve that shuts the water off would leak or not work well. It did not leak and actually works! So far so amazing and dry shoes now too! :)
I have been filling my fifth wheel water tank with a garden hose for 2 years and dealing with the back pressure that builds up and then shoots water back at me. In reading forums I learned about these small things and that they essentially extend down into the tank to create it easier for the pressure to escape around just the hose. In my using it I am having mixed results with that. the idea is a amazing one that when thought about is great. The issue I have is the hose just isnt long enough to accomplish that. the orange and black part of the valve are solid enough that I am not worried about their function at all. the shut off is nice to have there. I will probly end up replacing the hose though with one about a foot longer so that will reach all the method into the tank. I do realize that this may not be an problem for everyone as all rv's are various so I cant really knock the product and it does what it is supposed to do.
This is an inexpensive small item, but incredibly useful. I went through several funnels of different shapes when I first bought my camper, trying to figure out a method to fill the freshwater tank efficiently. Everything I tried involved having to stand and keep it in put to hold the water pressure from knocking it out. This attachment fits your hose, and inserts far enough into the tank opening to stay in put and fill smoothly without air bubbling back. The shut off makes it simple to stop when you wish without spilling water. I definitely recommend!
LOVE this hose ! We're living in our motorhome in Idaho, near Boise until our house is built and it's gotten down to 0 degrees a few nights in December but we've had not shortage of water and no freezing. The electrical hose keeps it all nice and warm so there's not freezing pipes.
Product has worked well. The first time I used it, the product leaked. There is a position where the two pieces do not come apart but are not fully together and appear loose. Not having used it before, I left it in that position, and it leaked. After fully seating the two halves, it has worked as intended.
Already had a 90 degree ell, but what a pain hooking and treading hose to it when arriving in the hot sun or at night. This works perfect. In fact, I now use all kinds of snap connectors as I also use such connectors to a "Flush King", back tank spray unit and a RV water softner. These snap connectors are just what is required for all those hose connections.
Seems a bit flimsy but works well .... I always hated leaving the hose in when it topped off and water spewed out I would need to run to the hose to turn it off while it was geyser of water flying out the side of my trailer .... I just wait till its full ... turn the shut-off valve off and I'm amazing to go wit no mess. Plus having a huge valve at the end support with the hose not folding and crimping. For the it does what it's suppose to do.
I'm using this to friend a 5/16 inch ID tube with a 1/2 inch ID tube, which has a water pump attached. I pump water through a radiator, and I don't even need any tube clamps. The barbs are enough to hold everything perfectly sealed.I'm glad I purchased this.
I am a woman in her 60's living in my 5th wheel that loves to D.I.Y. Dont call the RV guy and him 90 bucks an hour! super simple to install - now I don't have to literally war with the old worn out one. Just be sure and place WD40 on your old rusty screws a day prior to loosen them up.
My old Valve was old not sure if they was factory installed when my Shasta was built but it had Bristol Valves on it and appeared to seal ok I have had this 5er for a year now the reason I replaced Valve was the fact that valves had gotten hard to begin and close & that the tee handles was long gone and seeing how poor the threads was from having to use pliers to open/Close must have been like that for a amazing while before I got it So I went with The Valterra Valves For There Quality And the fact these have the metal tee's I got both Valves Replaced In about 15 minute and oh man these valves open/Close So simple one finger simple that's nice maybe I am just over excited from having the hard open/close valves but still they work amazing i hope its a long time before I have to do that Crappy job again but will be using Valterra for the next time
Not sure why trailer manufacturers jump over dollars to save dimes and install parts. They should just spend the additional two cents and install one of these valves with a metal handle to start with. Simple to install and well worth the money! I will definitely be swapping my 3” valve out to one of these as well.
Purchased this to replace the valve on my 2001 camping trailer. On the first install I still had a leak. I talked to an RV Mechanic and gave me 2 amazing hints for the install. #1 - use some petroleum jelly to support keep the gaskets in place. #2 - Place the gaskets on the pipe fittings and not the valve. I was putting them on the valve and then tightening the bolts and this causes the gaskets to obtain pinched and leak. After following his tip the install went smooth and no leaks.
This valve replaced the original gray water valve on my 2008 Fuzion toy hauler RV. The original valve began leaking therefore I purchased this one to replace it. This valve seems to be created very well and the metal handle is a nice touch.
Ordered this and a 3" from Amazon to replace in our camper on the 22nd. 3" arrived 23rd. This one, also 'guaranteed' delivery the 23rd arrived today the 24th. Kinda my fault as I started camper without realizing only 1 of the valves had arrived in package. Order got split? So camper sat, no drains. Obtain to work on it again today to at said Valterra valves I usally obtain 10 years ± before they begin to dribble/leak or obtain difficult to operate. Direct replacment. For such a easy device I think that's good, some obtain longer life but when they begin to seize I replace. I've broken a valve before. Not worth the gamble.
My '99 Bounder diesel had Valterra valves on it, but the handle for my grey water tank had one half snap off in the cold one , after 15 years, said grey water valve's seal had started to drip a little bit. My wife can smell a flea's fart from a mile, so I knew about it in short , it was a definite challenge to obtain the seals to remain in put while wedging the valve into place, though I place a thin coating of silicone grease on mine to both prevent leaks and prolong lifespan, but I found, if I loosened the hose clamp holding the pipe to the tank, I could twist the pipe and [email protected]#$%! in...GENTLY. This gave me enough room to obtain both the grey and black tank valves in place, seals properly seated.
These are the same brand and construction as the OEM valves. The handle color is generic (same) for both sizes I ordered vs. the OEM valve handles were black and grey respectively. This is not really a problem. The install is a bit tricky getting the fresh valves installed while keeping the gaskets properly positioned. Fresh valves operate smoothly and don't leak.
The temp for kotzebue. Ak I am getting are SEVERELY WRONG, temps DO NOT obtain that high as reported they are ABOVE the Arctic Circle. Nowhere near 80 to 100 degree temp. my mates there are confirming they are not near that temp. It is ALASKA not Arizona.
