A standard freshwater tank filler, which is made out of a water hose connector and plastic tubing, would not stay in the my cabover camper’s freshwater inlet because of the hose’s weight and water pressure while filling.

To solve this problem, I made a flexible filler unit out of ½-inch threaded PVC parts purchased from the plumbing department at my local home improvement store. Assemble as shown; do not tighten or seal the threaded parts, just make them snug. The threaded parts must be able to move to get the water hose to hang properly with little or no pressure on the freshwater tank filler. The assembly can also be flattened for easy storage.
