An Adapter to Take Water From an Unthreaded Spigot
The problem comes when you go to fill with water. You pull your hose to the spigot and find there are no threads on the darn thing. Many places have these unthreaded things so that you are forced to drive your camper through the kids bicycling and playing to get water. Sometimes the people that do these things don't think them out..
The adapter is simply a piece of heater hose. Split the one end and use a clamp to connect it to the spigot. Put a hose fitting in the other end. Store it with a bungee cord which is used to hold the valve open when filling.
In 2006 I found a new type of pole in the parks. The
spigot requires a one inch inside diameter hose. The old hose works but
leaks so I am now carrying two adapters. Same idea, two sizes. The
new pole has a handicap button that is easy to push. A bungee cord will
hold it in.
