In this premium video lesson, RV maintenance and repair expert Dave Solberg teaches you how to replace a leaky water diverter valve in your RV plumbing system. Recently the RV Repair Club crew was recently asked to inspect a Winnebago Bravo that was experiencing leaky plumbing.

Dave and his team started by removing the system’s water pump, which they bench-tested and found no cycling problems. After this, they checked for leaks in the interior faucets and replaced seats in a dripping shower fixture’s handle joint, but they learned that the true culprit still had not been unmasked.

With more trial and error they eventually discovered the part on the exterior of the water system that was causing the water pump to cycle. It was a dripping water diverter valve, which is intended to switch between the system’s city water fill and water tank fill settings. This is a simple fix, but a crucial one! Dave demonstrates the proper way to install your system’s specific replacement water diverter valve, which can be found at your local hardware store. You’ll learn how to hook the system up and conduct a test run to ensure that all looks good. And voila, no more leak!
