Mal,

Pretty much everyone makes their own.

Depending on they type of tubing you use, you can go with PEX and brass ball valves, PVC and brass or PVC ball valves, copper with brass ball valves, or just about anything else you want.

I would use ball valves though as they seem to last longer and don't leak nearly as much as the gate type valves that your use to.

Good Luck!

Mal, like Dallas said you make your own or get a plumping shop to build one i have never seen one for sale i guess because not all coaches are plumbed the same

I think he's talking about a Maniblock system, but I don't know where you buy them.

Several on here have used them, so someone will chime in.

I designed and built my own using copper and brass valves. Does everything I would ever need to do, including sucking in antifreeze or chlorox, pressurizing a hose, etc. Can bypass the pump when on shore, and fill the tanks.

I used the manobloc system, picked it up off the e-place for about $60 new. Worked out great, compact and easy to use.
