Outside Spray Hose

Our Kodiak comes with an outside spray hose that connects with a quick coupling instead of an outside shower. When I connect it, it acts like it's pressuring up, but as soon as you try to spray the pressure goes to just a trickle. I've tried to find a valve that may be only partially opened, but to no avail.

Any advice? I need that hose to clean fish outside!

You don't have 2 water valves beside of it, to either side of the quick-connect... Hot & Cold, like you'd find in your shower?

Damn... since the Rubicon is the bumper-pull version of the Voltage, I just figured you'd have a similar setup. If not, I'm afraid I can't help you, since I'm still kinda new to the RV world myself. Sorry...

The crank handle is to lower the spare tire. The contact point for the crank is between the rear stairs. You'll see the point when you drop the stairs and looked towards the center of the rig.

I'll have to go out and look for the box with the screws.

I took a look on the left side of bay and didn't see a box with screws. What I do have on that side (same side as crank handle), is the place where the vacuum cleaner bag goes. It's red and says Dirt Devil.

My bad!! I looked at the picture again and as you, I don't have that box or crank. Disregard the previous BS.

I don't have one and I think I'm glad I don't. It seems like it takes up alot of room in there.

I'm wondering though if the crank might not be for the landing gear. The box, no idea for that.

I tried to blow up the pic but the resolution is too low to be able to do so. It appears as a box with a red and blue label on it. six shinny screws in it. Its located just above the yellow label.. I suppose it could be some optical illusion but since we have the same unit my bay is all flat in that area. My manual crank for the landing gear is a cheezy plastic piece i put over the motor shaft and hook a 3/8 rachet to it. It is located in front of the propane tanks on each side. God I hope I never have a landing failure.

The Box with the crank & screws is the reel for the power cable storage.

Ah so! That could be better than fighting the big black snake on a cold winter's morn.

I suppose the same amount of room is used whether the shore cord is wenched in the box or shoved in the bay proper.

The box is a reel for the 50 amp cord. I have one mounted in the front by the generator. It is one of the best devices I added. 50 feet of 50 amp is a pain. This makes it easy.

Kind of goofy of Dutchmen, my Denali 5'er doesn't have an outside shower. It has the quick release hose bib built in to the service area, but that is only cold water. Don't they know this water is coming from the city supply, which coincidentally is right next to the trailer? Anyway, I may end up altering my outside kitchen faucet to make it into a shower. It isn't much good as a faucet as the sink is just a bowl that collects water.

Well... with my toy hauler, I understand why there isn't an outside shower. Most of us hauling toys would rather have a spray-port so we can wash-down the mud & dirt from our toys at the end of each day.

That said... having both cold & hot water for that is a plus.

So do you have both hot and cold water? We were told we only have cold water - however - its broke so we have not had a chance to try it out!

Both H&C water on the Voltage 3800. Water comes out of a blue coiled hose thru a normal looking garden nozzle.

Works well when you want to wash off the stinky slinky parts. I don't get my toy dirty enough to have to spray it off but it could be useful for that purpose.

Glad to hear DH isn't the only one who does not get his toys dirty!
