Water connections

I bought this trailer used, and it didn't come with the hose for the outdoor water connection. It looks like a pressure washer hose connection.

Has anybody run across this or know where I can get one? Thanks!Click image for larger version

Here are a couple links to what mine has on it. Not advocating this is what or where you should buy it.

Your Welcome, and you're right about searching for stuff sometimes when everyone calls stuff something different.

Just a "Tip" too on connecting the male quick connect fitting into the female coupler. If it hasn't been used in a while you may have to take a flat tip screwdriver and depress the check valve that is inside the female coupler. It will stick and no matter how hard you try and press the male end of the hose into it you can not get it to go deep enough to lock in place. Trust me, I learned the hard way after fighting with it one day for about half an hour. Barely even touched it with the screwdriver and it popped free. One of those learning experiences you just don't forget.

Good Luck with your Lacrosse, We love ours!!!!

That IS the outside shower.The tank fill is above it to the left. I have an adapter for the water hose that has a ball valve and a small 1/2" hose about 12" long that you can actually run down inside the filler. You want the plastic ball valve so you do not over pressurize the tank when it starts to fill up.

D&W Inc. (Spray Port manufacturer) also sells the quick connect adapter to use with a normal hose. $6.00 each on their site and free shipping.

Nice to know. I will probably never use the outside shower. Other than being covered in mud and want to wash off before going inside, I cant think of a reason to use it.

Different strokes for different folks. I use the outside shower as an outside water spigot - with hot water available no less! Comes in handy washing dishes at the picnic table as a source of hot water for washing and rinsing. No more in and out for hot water.

But we generally limit inside activity to sleeping and waiting out rain showers.

I like that. I may pick one up for our outside sink- the coil hoses don't ever reach our fire pits.
