Need mobile RV tech in Williamsburg, VA

Arriving at camp, I found that I didn't properly winterize the toilets and have a leaking water valve on one of the two toilets. I don't have a water shut off at the toilet, so we have no water inside right now. I tried getting a multi-turn valve to put into its place, but it is leaking at the pex to NPT threaded connection when I put it into place.

Secondly, I have a strong smell of propane outside under/around the 1/2 bath. My only guess it's where the propane is coming into the camper for the fridge and stove.

I was only off of work today to get the camper here and have already spent hours fighting the toilet. I need to throw in the towel and hire help.

So- anyone with connections to a mobile RV tech in Williamsburg, please send me details.

Doug

Sorry to hear of the problems. I don't know any techs in Williamsburg. I did want to mention that I've had great luck with shark bite fittings from Home Depot. You can connect PEX to them without the crimping tool and there are a lot of combinations and valves. If you don't find a tech it might help you at least get water until you do.

Hope the trip gets better!

Sorry to hear about that Doug. Don't know of any techs at all, but I think you purchased your QBOK in the last year. Think you might be able to leverage CoachNet at all? I'm not sure what all is included in your free year, but it is worth a shot. Worse case scenario, maybe that can get you to a tech.

Just a suggestion, but if anyone knows of mobile RV techs in Williamsburg, VA it would probably be American Heritage RV Park, one of the best in the area. Give them a call, 888-530-2267 or local 757-566-2133, I'm sure they could recommend someone.

We're at the Thousand Trails Williamsburg campground (which is literally all but on top of the highway :-(). I'm going to ask at the office this morning and then I'll call over top American Heritage RV Park (thanks for the tip) and finally I'll check the Internet a bit.

I don't recall seeing anything for CoachNet when I went thru my paperwork. And, I've been gambling with my trips so far and haven't gotten an emergency roadside assistance plan yet.

We'll see...

Thanks Ron- I think there's also a RV Service Reviews site that I was going to look for.

QCC- you're right, I have 1 year of CoachNet. I'll check them out.

Ugh- I'm supposed to be working today!

Ok, the RV Park had a few cards and the manager lady mentioned one in particular as we were looking at business cards on the bulletin board.

Called and left a message... The saga continues.

I'll admit- the fireplace option would be nice right now.

That and I can see the beauty and genius behind the CheapHeat system, even if it's a little expensive!
