Water water everywhere

We got the bed to slide finally and went for our first long trip. We were sure to add a pressure coupler to the hose and hooked up city water.
That's when it started to pour out the bottom of the camper!
I put the sink down and could see the water had sprayed underneath, I'm assuming a hose came loose or a fitting.
So now at home I removed the screw from the panel under the stove but it wont budge and I can't see any clips. Seems to be stuck at the floor.

Anyone know how to remove the panel without damaging anything? ( I've tried to attach a picture of the panel I'm talking about. I believe it's the way into the plumbing. Sorry it's turned 90 deg.)

Also, is there a plumbing schematic for the pop-up on this forum?

Suggest you add model and year of your PUP.

My Trailer is a 228BH, and it is a bit different, but that panel on my trailer has two screws; one top, one bottom. So when you say "removed the screw" did you look at the very bottom?
And it looks like a screw at the very bottom in the photo.

This is what we found

I hadn't seen the bottom screw. Interesting that it was rusted! The picture below shows what I found... (Tilt your head 90 deg to left)

I'm assuming this is some sort of filter housing. Seems the dealer didn't test the water although I dimly remember turning on the water and having no problems, could this have been sheared off from ice? Perhaps I should have taken it off during the winter storage? It barely frosted here last winter though.

Does anyone have a good source for replacement parts?

Try Roberts Sales. They have a lot on their website and if you don't see it, you can always call. I have found them to be knowledgeable and helpful. Good luck.

My filter housing failed like this during the winter while full of RV antifreeze. Then again we did get down to 10 below. Better it failed then though.

Bypass it and use an external filter.
