If you have the version with the 3/4" hose connector, you use a screw driver and a hammer and the little piece punches out fairly easily.

And yes, you will need a cap. I got one from the hardware store for $0.49. It's yellow and easy to find if dropped.

I'm gonna give that some thought.

Thanks for sharing.

Actually we used a 3in PVC pipe left over from another job so thats why its white, I think a black paint job is in the future. I think the only draw back will be if that tire every fails it will take the plumbing with it..

I believe that would be putting it mildly

That did happen to our last camper, the tire blew and rip just about all the plumbing out but thankfully my father in law is a plumber so the fix wasnt expensive. But hey what are the odds that tire will blow??
