Hard to find RV parts

When doing research for improvements, repairs, and projects for my RVs, it is sometimes hard to find a particular part - especially these days, when often many parts are made in China.

I will add an item to this page whenever I come across a hard-to-find part that might be useful in your ventures. I don't keep an inventory of these parts, nor do I make any guarantee to their suitability in your application. I also do not review their inclusion on this list so I do not know if their availiability changes over time. I just list them as I find them.

 

Furrion Solar Connector.

This is the connector that is used on the Furrion Solar Port that many RVs come with these days (Grand Design, Forrest River).

Spray-Away Hose Adapter

Plumbing Cheater Valve

These are found on many RVs and are typically located in the sewer line under sinks. They provide venting for hard-to-drain sinks. Unfortunately, they come loose or fail, which often results in a sewer smell in the RV. However, there are many potential sources for RV smells, and this may or may not be the culprit.

Minature SPST Rocker Switch

These are often found in the electrical panel consoles in RVs, especially those made by KiB. They are SPST (Single-Pole/Single-Throw) switches rated for 5Amps. They push into a 0.51" x 0.76" square hole (verify the opening as many switches are a different size).

Minature SPDT Momentary Rocker Switch

These are often found in the electrical panel consoles in RVs, especially those made by KiB. They are sometimes used for controlling slide outs. They are SPDT-Momentary (Single-Pole/Double-Throw Spring loaded to off) switches rated for 10Amps. They push into a 0.51" x 0.76" square hole (verify the opening as many switches are a different size).

G10 Epoxy Fiberglass Sheets (FRP/GRP)

I have used this stuff in several projects. It makes for a nice foundation for structural components. While you can obtain it in several different thicknesses, I typically use the .060/1.5mm thick sheets (1/16"). And a 2sq ft piece will last a long time.

Mfg: Generic
P/N: N/A

Wirecon Outlets

Many if not most RVs these days are wired with IDC (Insulation Displacement) "Wirecon" (Hubbell Trademark) outlets. These are integrated all-in-one outlets that don't require a separate wiring box. You will not find these things at your local Home Depot as they are exclusive to the RV/Mobile Home industry.

Mfg: Hubbell and others
P/N: varous
