adding antifreeze intake valve...

I want to add an antifreeze intake valve/line between the tank and water pump in my new 195BH. I don't want to use the Camco kit as the pump's a little hard to reach, plus I want to make the line long enough I can route it outside to suck water from a tank should the on-board fresh tank run empty...

We'll be bringing the camper home from storage for one last trip and to do the winterization... I'd like to have the valves, extra line, etc all ready bought/assembled, so all I have to do is cut the line and splice in.

So the question: is the braided hose from the tank to the pump 1/2" I.D.? Is it 3/4" O.D.? Camper is in storage so I can't just go look.

Plan is to just add a T and two shutoffs, one to the tank and one to the antifreeze inlet. (didn't see a 3-way valve at Lowes, and not worth the cost/shipping to order one)...

Thanks!

Got the camper home from storage. So to answer my own question for anyone who later comes across this in a search, it was 1/2" I.D. braided hose (11/16" O.D.).

Added a T and a couple shutoff valves for the AF intake. Made the new intake hose long enough I can feed it out the hole for the electric cord and use external water source if needed.
