Review of Valterra Plumbing A01-2004BKVP


Today we're going to be taking a look the Valterra City Water and Gravity Fill Inlet lockable hatch for RVs. This unit's going to allow you to add or replace the hatch for the city water inlet and gravity fill inlet on your RV. It's going to feature the lockable hatch that's going to come with 2 keys. The lock core is already installed on there. Now the keys are keyed alike. We're also going to include a nice little thumb launch mechanism that can replace the lock core if you'd rather use that option. The unit's also going to feature a sliding door that allows your water hose to pass through with the main hatch door in the closed position.

That opening's going to measure and inch and a quarter wide, and from that lip to the opening's going to measure one and seven sixteenths of an inch tall. If we take a look on the inside, you'll notice that it exposes the connections. This one right here is for the gravity fill. It's got the nice threaded cap with the tether that's included. Right here is the city water connection.

It has the plug with the tether on there as well. The threaded connector design is going to allow you to easily attach it to your water hose, and it's going to offer the appropriate seals for leak proof performance. Again, the cap is included for that connector as well. Down there at the bottom is going to be the air vent. That's going to let you know when the tank is full, and it's going to allow air to escape to keep pressure from building up inside the fresh water tank. That's going to have a wire mesh screen over that area to keep unwanted items out.

Taking a look at the overall dimensions real quick. It's going to give us an overall width measurement of about seven and five eighths of an inch, overall height measurement six and a half inches. Now this does require a cut out. Your cut out's going to need to measure five and seven eighths of an inch wide by four and three quarters of an inch tall. Here on the back, you're going to notice the connectors.

This one right here is going to be the plastic half inch male pipe thread fitting that's going to connect to the RV plumbing connection for fresh water. You're going to have the inch and a quarter barbed connection that connects to the RV connection for the gravity fill, and you're going to have your half inch air vent connection. The kit comes with your installation putty tape, your pipe thread tape, thumb latch mechanism, two keyed alike keys, and it's going to come with the necessary installation hardware. Those screw heads are painted to match the color of the hatch. You'll also notice that the mount holes that go around the flange right here, they go around that perimeter, they're going to be covered by that main hatch door. The housing itself is constructed of a durable UV stabilized plastic construction, and that's going to be black in color. That's going to do it for today's look at the Valterra City Water and Gravity Fill Inlet lockable hatch for Rvs.
