I'm afraid it will never work Bryan, it's hopeless.
Just send me your tickets.
My truck and camper are parked just out the back door, ready to go.

The cap should work.
Whatever it takes to make it run, as long as the flow moves in the same 
directions, you should be good to go.

you can get hose barbs with male and female threaded ends to make step 
up and step down hose adapters if needed, or screw both into a union if 
you can't find female thread hose barbs... good brass selections are 
getting hard to find...
