groco strainer+ shut off ball valve
First off i want to thank the person whom i saw this extra mod for the groco strainer add on in case you get towed.
this is what i got to add before the water strainer i hope the passage for the water will not be restrained by its smaller openning?

I saw that also in the other thread. awesome idea. i had to tow in one of mine last year after got something in the grate, and it is a long ways when your going that slow. The pvc are very cheap and easy to install.

it only cost $2 more also so it was worth it.
what about the openning of the ball valve is this enough for the water so there is sufficiant water passage look at the first pic?

I have to wonder how the metals in the valve will react to salt water.

No thanks, all it takes is once to forget it's closed and your melt stuff (faster than you can say, "did I open the valve"). Just carry a clamp to pinch off the hose. If you break down that much that you need to install a valve. Find a better mechanic.
It's a nice idea, but all it takes is once to forget. One burst of speed and things are ruined.
