When someone moves the truck without removing the solution line, breaking the nipple behind the QC inside the faceplate.

When someone drops a wand breaking the nipple between the QC and valve...

Please don't say "stainless nipple"....because it's better for a disposable pipe nipple to break than an expensive part attached to it.

Last winter I had my van plugged in at home between jobs instead of dropping it at the rented garage. When I pulled away I heard the electric heater fall off the waste tank lid. That has happened before when I have forgotten to take it off there. So I kept going and then heard the cord snap. Fortunately, no damage to anything but the cord.

If I am filling my fresh tank from my house water I always leave the van doors wide open so I don't drive away connected.

Thanks Lee.

Now, on its third trouble free year, after replacing from brass to stainless steel connector, and still..........no break. Ever!

With all that brass connectors protecting that expensive $30.00 valve........no wonder the EZ out is your numero uno!! :winky:

But in principle you're correct. Got to admit.

Did I say celebrating three years?

Duct tape and vise grips. If you can't tape it back on, tear it the rest of the way off!



Tool box for emergency repairs:
Flat and Phillips
Vise grips
Adjustable wrench
Knife
Duct tape
Teflon tape
Electrical tape
Spare fittings and o-rings
Feeler gauge (for quick-clean of tool slots)

Our stuff is pretty reliable, so I don't want to risk rust and loss for too many tools that won't get used.
