    It took a few days but I finally have this mod complete. The most difficult part was figuring out what fittings to use for the connection between the faucet hoses and camper hoses. I ended up using regular faucet hoses that I married with a set of fittings. Those were then clamped on to a barbed fitting and camper hoses. I have pics to give you a visual. I was lucky to have a sales rep at Menards that thought through with me how the whole thing would work and then finding the fittings I needed.

    I also successfully wired the new water pump to the battery. It worked flawlessly too. Here are the pics:

    Snow, yes, I added the electric water pump. The hand pump was shot and my wife wanted a regular faucet. Here it the link where I installed the faucet: http://www.popupportal.com/index.php?topic=102280.msg1038856#msg1038856

    The water pump was added a few days ago and I finished wiring it yesterday. I did not post any pics of that process. So, my set up is like this, I have the city water connection going to the hot water side of the faucet. (I bought a portable water heater that sets up outside the pup.) I have the line from the water tank running to the cold water side.

    Check out tcanthonyii's post. I got inspired by his mods. http://www.popupportal.com/index.php?topic=95685.msg1035558#msg1035558
