Anderson 4 way valve

Towards the end of our 6 month trip it was becoming more difficult to turn the 4 way valve. Actually had to use channel lock pliers to turn it the last week of travel. In addition, in Normal, the water pump ran constantly. Ordered the replacement core. Installed today. In removing the old core saw one whole rubber ring, and half of another, missing! Installed new core according to the below video. Very easy. The printed instructions say to remove the click washer, then the core. Skip and just remove the core.

Thank you so much for posting this video.

Do you think you could have just replaced the o-rings without having to drop $40 on the whole cartridge replacement (build kit)?

Took the dive and ordered the replacement from RNO distributors for $25 + $10 ship. Install took 5 minutes.

one thing we’ve learned about the cartridge is to remove water pressure before turning the handle...
some will also say to always turn the handle clockwise...

these washers are subjected to a lot of pressure and can be pushed out of their seatings

Anderson has always sent us replacements Free of charge, by emailing them

enjoy! : )
