I haven't seen metal inlet fittings but I've had 3 trailers and never
had an issue.
I even use a whole house filter that hangs directly on those threads.
Maybe your inlet is just bad and or your hose end is bad?
Garden hose ends can be really cheaply made.
Try a replacement end on the hose first.
If you look at Lowes or maybe Home Depot you can find brass hose ends.

Good luck!

If you look at post #2 from Milzat you'll see the replacement inlet with check valve. It is metal where the hose attaches. One thing to check with some hoses is the opening in the male end is not wide enough to allow the screened washer to bottom out and seal the connection so it doesn't leak. I found this with an el-cheapo I bought a few years ago with my pop-up. But it did provide an outdoor shower that felt real nice on a 94 degree day while setting up.

Geez. e I sit with the exact same problem on my brand new Wildwood. Is it easy to remove and replace the check valve? Hey, when a light bulb burns out, before i allow my wife to climb a ladder to replace it I make sure that she shuts off electricity at the box.

First time it happened to me, I ran to town and picked up a hose-end shutoff valve at Walmart for about 2 bucks. Screwed it into the city water valve and stopped the flow. I always carry one in the trailer now, just in case.

Funny this thread came up. I swear I never noticed anyone talking about this. This weekend this happened to me. I got by with putting a hose shut off on there. So I guess I need to purchase this weekend. Is there much to changing it?

I picked up my new city water valve last Thursday, it was a matter of removing 3 screws and replacing the old valve. Easy as can be. Be sure to re-caulk around the new valve to the camper wall. (5 minutes max.)
