Water Line Connection


Recommended Posts

Hi there. I am a park model rv owner and was hoping to find some advice regarding my water line hook-up. There is a rigid black tube(pex?) underneath the TV that hooks up to the hydrant. At the end of the tube is a green plastic coupling that screws onto the hydrant connection point. After we dewinterized this year that coupling keeps popping out of the tubing. I can only push it in so far. In my full time home we use copper pipe so I'm not familiar with this.


I didn't get a picture of it and can't seem to find a similar looking piece on the net. Maybe I'm describing it wrong. Do I need to heat the tubing in order to

Ugh the coupling all the way into it and get a better connection so it doesn't continue to pop out? Is there any other type of hose I can uses instead of this black tubing? Thank you in advance.

Dipping it in or pouring very hot water over the pipe may soften it enough to push it fully on the ferrule. A good quality stainless steel worm-drive clamp should keep it there.
