Fresh Water Tank Valves Cherokee Grey Wolf 22RR

Hello, I am hoping someone with more knowledge can help me out. I've looked through the threads but didn't see one for this particular TT. 2016 Cherokee Grey Wolf 22RR.

My fresh water tank valve is leaking. I assume this is the fresh water tank drain valve. It's the very left hanging vale in the picture. As you can see in the picture, a water drop is about to come out. It's a slow leak, a drop every few seconds.

Can someone also explain to me the difference between this leaky "valve" and the "low point drain" valve closer to the front of the TT?

Thanks in advance.

Low point drain is just that..the lowest point in the system. All it does is drain water from the lines. I believe what's shown in your pic is the tank drain and vent line for the tank. I can't tell from looking, is that an actual valve on the line or just a screw cap? Mine has a screw cap and was leaking a little. There was a rubber insert in it that wasn't seated all the way. Pushed it into the cap a little more and tightened it and the leak went away.

On my 26DBH my tank drain leaked a few drips every so often. It was the crimp connector on mine that was dripping. A squeeze (be gentle) with pliers crimped my connection another clock or two and it solved the issue.

I think it's a screw cap, not a valve, but I'll check to make sure. Sorry for the confusion. YES, I'm hoping you're correct. I'll check this weekend, take the cap off and re-seat the rubber insert and see if that helps.

Thanks again!!

I'm going to crawl underneath this weekend and see if that is a crimp end or a screw cap. The post above mentions a rubber insert in the screw cap could be loose, so I will check for both situations this weekend.

Thanks for your help!

If it IS the fresh tank drain it is ALSO the pickup tube. It is a T fitting. Top screws into the tank, bottom has a screw cap to be the drain and the side is the crimp pickup tube for the pump / plumbing. Do not gorilla the cap or the crimp. they are only plastic and will break easily.

I see what you're saying... Makes sense.

I've only applied hand twist pressure to try to tighten the cap but still leaks. I won't "gorilla" it when I check it this weekend.

Thanks.

Fresh Water Tank Valves Cherokee Grey Wolf 22RR

The hose on your right is your overflow and the one on your left in pic is fresh water tank drain. You can replace that cap with a valve. A lot have. I'm going to move mine closer to the side of camper so I do not have to crawl under the camper to drain fresh water tank.

Hey Rmac and Doc, what kind of valves did you replace with? I assume that when you "move" the drain closer to the edge you would secure it to the frame somehow..
