Question Orange gravity water fill plug

Does anyone know where this type of plug can be purchased? It is for the fresh water tank with the opening inside of the passenger door pillar. We have 2008 Roadtrek Adventurous.

If it's like ours, it's nothing more than a standard, polyethylene pipe plug. Looks like it's sized to fit 1-1/8" to 1-1/4" ID pipe.

Try a plumbing or refrigeration supply place; frequently copper pipes are shipped with plugs like that to keep debris out. (I have a collection of plugs that I've saved and use on various things.)

Ours says "NIAGARA 250" and ERIE PA" on it. Also note that it has a 1/8" hole drilled in it to allow atmospheric pressure to enter the fresh water tank.

Thank you for answering and sending the pictures. That is exactly what we are looking for. We have searched high and low but in the wrong places. ��

The filler cap on my CS Adventurous has no hole, the tank is vented elsewhere, if it wasn't filling would be tricky as I wouldn't know it was full until water came shooting back out of the filler.

Hi, I replaced mine with a cork plug. I stitched a pull cord into the middle of it.
