Attention Sabre owners

Just a heads up that on our Sabre 34RLQS the water line has come off the water heater twice now. While repairing it this time I noticed that they had actually used the wrong fittings on the water heater inlet and outlet. The lines on the water heater are the white reinforced hose and the fittings are for PEX line and not barbed fittings as they should be. To top it off the outlet hose was 1/2" and the fitting was 3/8". Might want to check yours just to be sure. It is an easy fix but pretty annoying having water everywhere.

Thanks for the heads up. Our REQS-6 is a 2013 but I will check it in the spring before firing it up.

I have a 2011 Sabre Silhouette, 250RLUD. My problem, twice, has been at the aux. pump and shore water inlet to pump. They used the plastic braided hose and used the PEX crimp fittings. I now carry a couple of small hose clamps which I can clamp just in front of the crimp. It stops the leak and saves cutting off the crimp, especially if you are out camping, miles from hardware store when you discover the leak. I think before I start my camping season this year I will go through all the connections and hoses and replace where ever I can with proper connections and hoses.
