Thanks for the posting. I have had a couple of issues with my water valve. Once I was out camping and I had the city water hooked up. The next morning I found that the water was not only pressurizing my water lines but had also filled my tank causing it to overflow all night long. Well I had a large mud pit under my mh and well as under my steps. I went to the valve and confirmed that it was on City Water and not Tank. I was not aware that you can not turn the valve while it is under pressure. It has only happened once. The valve is hard to turn so I guess I will be ordering a replacement valve for it now.

The valve CAN be turned with pressure on it, but sure helps to relieve BOTH sides before trying to move it. The OEM model suffers from the rubber o-rings tearing after use and allowing water to go where not meant to go under pressure from hookup.

I have put in the new Anderson brass valve, so far no leaks/water to wrong direction. But I would expect even a new valve to last for the 4 months I've had it.

I have a DRV supplied new all brass panel to install. From Anderson it came with a check valve for the pump supply side

According to Anderson="Up to 50% of the times it is the backflow check valve in the water pump and not the Kantleak causing the problem". Makes sense to me if you stop and think of how things are plumbed.

Easy to check also. Just unhook the line from valve to the the pump and see which way the water is coming from. From the valve to the pump, it's the valve. From the pump to the valve, it's the check valve in the pump. Easy check and can save a long wait for parts and a lot of work.

Duane, I and couple others have had trouble getting the main feed line to the valve to seal--the brass nipple is too short and the plastic nut bottoms out on the nipple base before a good seal is obtained. Just a heads-up for your install. I just used some thread seal on mine, others have replaced the bushing in the plastic fitting. Maybe your luck will be better than mine...

Thanks, Iíll keep that in mind. Probably be a couple of weeks before I change mine out - if I donít trade it in beforehand........

Seems that there are two panels being used as well. The metal plate version above, which is also used on new builds and a practice panel that I received.

Well, with the number of problems you've had, a trade is understandable....

I canít edit my above post - replace practice panel with plastic panel.

Only problem with trading is what to trade to.

New Horizons, but that may require a more HD Truck. Also a lot more $$$.
