    Hi all!

    Late start to the season here....I was sanitizing the water system today...the Starcraft 1019 has the hot water rank under one of the dinette benches, same area as the power converter....this bench cover is screwed on.

    Ever the anal owner, I always remove the wood screws and verify all is ok leak wise around the tank. Sure enough, this year one of the el super cheapo valves must have had a drop or 2 of water left in over the winter....because it started leaking like a sieve!

    A roll of paper towel later, and a quick trip to Home Depot for pex fittings, and all is fixed...but if I hadn't had that cover off a lot of water would gave been sloshing around the pup in a short period of time!

    Keeping in mind the pup is a 2012....it can happen to anyone!

    Just an FYI :)

    Not sure which valve you are referring to. A pic would help next time you open it up.
    Could it be from improper winterizing?
