Re: PS 34 Haul out Maintenance
It has been years since I removed and re-bedded the aft water tank fill, and I think after mulling it over that you are right; there is no ring on the underside of the fitting. My memory just goes back and forth.
From behind the electrical panel, the hose had to come off the adapter, the adapter had to come off the fitting, and the nuts and washers had to come off the screws. After the screws and fitting had been removed, cleaned up, re-caulked, and reinstalled, everything on the inside had to go back. Dropped nuts and washers and fingers sticky with extruded caulk made the first part of the re-installation a pain. I think the wrench I made made may have been used to tighten the adapter onto the fitting which of course put a counter torque on the fitting threatening the just completed caulking job. Finally, KY jelly and a hot air gun helped to refit the stiff hose on the adapter. It was a job in the confining space.
