    We took our 2008 Jayco PUP 1006 camper out this weekend for the first time this year. I thought I had fixed the sink before putting it up last year, but it ended up leaking still. The original pvc piece that goes from the sink hot water knob to the water line broke last year and I was not able to find the exact replacement. I found something I thought would work, but it still leaks. In the picture, the attachment without the metal connector is the one that leaks. Can anyone let me know how I can find this exact part? My other thought is that we don't use the hot water heater, so I can simply cap this line under our seat and that should be good enough. Is that a good/bad idea?

    Why not use a small hose clamp ?

    If you want the exact Jayco part, call them! I found their parts department people very helpful. Be prepared with your VIN# and a good description of the part you need. Now, they won't sell to you directly, but they will locate your closest dealer to ship the part(s) to so you can make your purchase.

    Hope this helps!

    Where exactly is it leaking? Provided all your connections are tight that setup should work fine. Did you use teflon tape on the threads?

    Get a pvc 90* threaded on one end to the sink and barbed on the other. Small hose clamp and kaboom your good. Don't tighten the hose clamp to tight, might crack the plastic...
    Hope this helps

    It's leaking from the threads. I'm tempted to grind off the threads and try to just use a tube and a metal clamp.
