Has anyone done this ..and care to share the sizing of fittings?
I had the 'box' that covers the pump off last night, I was trying to see if I had a supply line kinked somewhere. Turns out I don't, so I think the filter is restricting my water flow - but that's another story...
There are two screws there under the sink on the floor. They are on the wooden brackets attached to the paneling that hides the pump. Remove those and you can slide the cover over (but can't take it out without removing the shelf - which looks comlicated). I think it was 1/2" hose but I won't swear to it.
I'm going to do the bypass or siphon mod when I winterize mine - everyone here recommends not putting antifreeze in the fresh tank. I tend to agree - I use the stuff in my skimmers on my pool and they are always funky in the spring - I know, different application but makes me feel creepy about having it in the tank - bad enough to have it in my lines.
Looks like my A126 doesn't have a bypass for the filter under the sink so I need to find a plate for that filter housing (or add a bypass there too). You would have thought the plate would have come with the camper.
Also found the hot water bypass. I had though it was a single valve setup but it's not. The hot water is a 3 valve setup located under the dinette.
