I bought it at my local Lowes store.

Thanks

The tank helps to regulate the water flow and prevents the pump from cycling too much. The brand is Shurflo, I bought it online at Amazon.

I too got tired of crawling under the trailer and wanted to access it from the corner.

Hamster, is your tubing on an incline, being high at the connection and going down to the drain valve so water will not stand in it during the winter?

It's pretty level. I'll have the valve open when I blow out the system with compressed air.

If you're blowing out via the city water connection, you won't blow air into the FW tank and out the drain. The check valve in the water pump suction will prevent this. If you have a newer Roo, I guess you could blow air into the AF connection if you have one, and if you open the valve to the FW tank.

I too am interesting in a box like that. Also. How did you run the wires? Did you drill large entry holes for the cables?
