Voltage water leak

Hello, I have a 2013 Voltage 3305 toyhauler that has developed a water leak behind the freshwater hookup.My wife is in Scottsdale with it and Im in K.C. She replaced the regulator yesterday and now its leaking behind the panel. Anybody had this problem? Trying to fix from 1300 miles away! Thanks.

You say she replaced the regulator. Do you mean the pressure regulator at the where the water hose connects to the city water? If it is leaking behind the panel chances are one of the connections back there is loose. It is fairly easy to get behind that section If you have a power cord reel it is held down by either 2 or 4 screws. It should be 4 screws but mine was missing the back 2. Remove the power cord reel, and the side panel and you should see where the water is coming from.

The power cord I was referring to is the big fifty amp cord that attachs your RV to city power. Mine is stored on a big reel that is right inside the door that your water connections, dump valves etc are located. If you do not have a power cord reel then you must have to role it up and stow it somehow. Anyway, the panel on mine is accessible by removing that reel. Every thing is held in place with some square drive screws. I think they are combination square or phillips but square is easier to deal with.

My power cord is not on a reel,I wish it was but anyway you say it has square screws? I think I will wait until I get it back here, She filled the fresh water tank so its not like she doesn't have water.I really like the Voltage so if this is the only problem I have it will be no problem! I see you haul yours with f350, what kind of mileage are you getting? I have 2014 f350 dually 6.7 powerstroke. Maiden run getting 7.5 mpg.

I am getting right at that same mileage. My first run was from Arizona to Utah last summer and I was getting right at 7.5 mpg. The drive home I averaged 9.5 mpg. Seems it is uphill most of the way there.

As far as the screws. You have the option of using a phillips bit or a small square head bit. Square are just better as they seldom strip out a screw head but either work. As long as she has water with no leak, that's what counts.

Have you been across the CAT Scales yet. Just wondering what you weigh? I am a little overweight and I have thrown a lot of the factory stuff out of my trailer.

I haven't weighed it yet but I'm thinking I'm under because no toys in the trunk, just clothes and random stuff. Gotta say its got plenty of power though.Newbie to RVing,first trip from K.C. to Scottsdale was not to bad.

Maybe the moderators can get this thread back on track. I'm more interested in the water leak getting repaired and less interested in the last few posts.

A moderator, really??????
He is the OP of this thread and can ask whatever he wants. Your statement is ridiculous!

If you could do the labor, you are looking about 1700-2000. I am not sure on the mileage increase with the DEF system removed, mine did not have DEF and actually used injected diesel instead.

Well, Richard from Texas, the original question was regarding a water leak. The thread later morphed to fuel mileage and so forth.

If one wanted to add to solving the water leak or following the water leak problem it would be lost in fuel mileage and so forth.

I watch the thread to see if the water leak has been repaired, not to see who gets what for fuel mileage.

The op may get more responses regarding fuel mileage by starting a new thread.
However, the op acquiesed to my request so why don't you play nice and follow his example?

Seems harmless to me. Moderation should be considered if the OP's question was being lost due to others steering the post in a different direction. Since the OP was the one that asked about fuel mileage then this post is fair game to go in any direction he chooses.

Maybe the OP agreed because he has 8 posts and does not want to negatively impact his ability to get assistance on this forum in the future due to a "senior member" being upset that a post covered multiple topics.

Plankton.

Not a huge deal on going off topic. I think almost all of us has done it at one time or another. Actually, I joined it on it also. And, it would be cool to see a fuel mileage thread started up on this site. Go for it.

Back on topic. I believe when you remove the panel and expose the plumbing you with find a loose PEX water line nut. Half of mine were loose. Hand tightening should take care of your problem. If I were you I would pick up one of these 45 degree angle adaptors at any RV supply, most hardware stores or AMAZON. I live in a little hick town and AMAZON get most of my $$$$$$ This one is a Camco product, and about seven dollars the RV supply.

It will take allot of the stress out of the hose connection. Especially if you use a heavy duty water hose. The bend is just to extreme for my liking.
