Smile Option for Sporlan valve

I found a web page (electric solenoid valves .com)
And have purchased 2 of the 1/2 valves (SKU 2w-160-15-12v)
For 39.95 ea
I will give one a try and report back. Hopefully another low cost option.

Just replaced ours with a hand operated ball valve. Got tired of operating problems.

On my model I have a water tank fill valve that's in a tight inaccessible spot.
That's been giving me problems.. If not for the situation I would go manual too

You know.. you could always add a 2nd filler like the older buses and not even have a valve.

No room in the side water connection box to add anything.

Twice now, the sporlan valve got me. Both times in return trip from San Diego. Both times 100 gallons of water, but not able to take a shower. I’d like to install manual ball valve. Will someone please post a pic or link to finished install. I’ve taken mine apart and cleaned, still no dice.

Hard to believe a valve quits, the solenoid's on the other hand and then there is that pesky ground thing. Been there a few............

I don't have an option for you, but did you turn the tank fill switch off?
