A schrader valve OR a quick disconnect looks like a great idea on the water panel to get rid of that dern valve that connects the air system to the water system for purging. I disconnected mine after it leaked, but for purging the water system, this will work. Just have to figure how to make it a neat panel installation.

I had this link
http://www.eztruckaccessories.com/qu...s-pg1sz10.html
under the picture for the place I found them online, go to page #2 and measure the diameter of your coupler to see if the 3/4" or the 1" will fit.

I personally don't use these but they may work, I found a vinyl cover in my junk spare parts here in the shop that fits perfectly, but I'm not exactly sure what it came off of, but I think it was a in-line water filter that I used to have.

Try a hardware store,, vinyl or plastic caps or the bottom of chair feet.
the rubber boot of a wooden walking cane will fit.

How long should it normally take to air up the coach via this method? I tried it today, and after 15 minutes or more I only had 20psi in it. For all I know that 20psi might have been the amount I started with. All I was trying to do is get enough air to use the air actuated dump valves.
