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.
