I have a 1969 Shasta Stratoflyte, and there's a broken piece that I'm trying to figure out what it does. Here's a photo of the broken part, and a couple other parts that connect to the water tank, and I would love to know their function I'm very new to this, and so I am not sure what it's supposed to look like in order to repair it.
Here's a photo of the broken part. I'm trying to find what should go here instead of an open hole:
This is a bit of a mystery without knowing where it was connected. I suspect the petcock was a drain for the water tank, and it is possible the broken off pipe may have been a water line leading to another part of the plumbing, and possibly might have been a propane line. Again, impossible to tell from this angle.
This filler cap would unscrew, allowing the water tank to be filled from a hose. Then when screwed back on, it would seal and allow for air pressure to be added to the system. The pressure would push the water through the system. A lot of trailers in this era with the pressure system had a electric compressor built into them. The stem on the cap allowed use of a pump to pressurize the system if no electricity were available.
Is the side cap (city water inlet?)original? I just capped mine off, but would like to find something that was close to original to put back on. Would love to see a photo of what it is supposed to look like
That first photo is very similar to my 68 Shasta. (Mine has a female hose connection though, with a white plastic plug screwed into it). It goes through the floor and there is a 4 way tee, which is cold water supply with a inlet from water supply tank, a line going to shower, a line into hot water tank and then that one. I don't understand why no water comes out of it though, unless that 4 way tee has a one way valve in? I can get a photo of the tee if needed, but this thread is 4 months old so maybe original poster got it taken care of
