This is all correct,but I might add, Buy a 12" long piece of 1/2 Copper tubing and push it in the end of the Plastic hose! This will allow you to keep the Valve and fill hose (In the Fill opening) without it coming out and giving you a Cold Shower! It also prevents the plastic hose from (Getting the Droops) and shutting off the Flow! If you always have a Helper disregard this! Youroo!!

Thats a good idea youroo and if you put a slight "J " bend in the end you can hang it out of the fill hole,I know the FW fill port is high on a 3050/3051 ( over my head and i'm 5' 10") going to use that idea!

I have a SunSeeker. What I did was buy a "T" fitting with a spicket on the end. I use an inline water filter, I double filter, use the shown FW tank fill adapter and short white hose to fill. That way I have filtered water going into my tank. Plus I can attach a hose to the end for any use. I have city water hooked up at home cleaning and getting ready and fill FW tank.
