Exterior Hookups


New member
Hello lovely Westy community!

I have just bought my first Westy (also my first car in general!) and upon inspecting the hookups I realized that I have no idea what one of them is! I have a 1981 AC Vanagon L that has (from left-to-right) the water hookup, shore power hookup, and a third box that is simply a key slot. Any ideas? The gentleman I bought it from and his mechanic had no idea what it went to.

Thanks for your help!

That's where you can fill up the 5 gallon water tank inside your cupboard so you have water while your on the road. Get your self a Bentley Manual it has everything you need to know about your new 'home on wheels" Congratulations on your purchase...I have an 82 Westy. Safe travels to you.
