Amazon prime has good prices and fast shipping, eBay good prices OK shipping . Also check craigslist sometimes you get lucky.

Not sure how long you have owned your RV, but if you have had it a few years, you should know by now that your dealerships parts & accessories store is the LAST PLACE you want to spend your hard earned money. An item that you can get at for $60 will cost you $120 in that store.

If your not in a huge hurry for the broken part, search the web. There are hundreds of RV parts stores online. They are convenient, The price is fair, and most charge far less shipping than the cost of fuel just going to your RV parts store.

Yes I am am too much old school I do need to search more on the computer. Amazon gives some great deals from time to time. I know rv stores are much higher than WAL-MART. I guess I should be more patient and search more. The cap cover I was looking for was no big deal it certainly could have waited.

An RV needs so much attention that I have come to realize you've got to look at it as your "hobby". With that perspective, I look at most of my repairs/upgrades as rewarding and in some cases downright enjoyable. Let me assure you, I've spent a lot more on other hobbies than on maintaining our MH.

If I understand this correctly, you are looking to seal the female garden hose connecter where you hook your fresh water line. Correct?

If so
go a walmart, lowes, or Home depot near you? pick up either a male garden hose quick connect adapter or a male hose end repair kit and tape the the quick connect part up.

I just use a compressed air fitting that I already had (for winterizing) for the campers water lines. Paid $1.99 years ago been using it as a dust cap even since. It screws in.
