City water check valve

2015 Thor Chateau. Call Thor on Monday to find a part number?

Water flowing out about as fast as we can put it in. I pushed, pulled, etc the valve won't shut. Will make a run to Gander this evening to see if they have anything in stock.

Is the cone shaped screen backwards? Many times it is reversed during winterization and then not returned to normal before de-winterizing.

Thanks but no it's not. I pulled it out and fiddled with the valve for several minutes but it won't stop pouring out.

If it ever quits raining, I'll take remove the panel and see if it can be repaired.

Entering week two of the part being on order. It's coming a whopping 200 miles from Elkart, IN.

Takes the USPS a month to get mail from my local address to one less than 20 miles away.

...and you could hand-deliver it in less than 30 minutes.

Should have ordered it from ETrailer. Don't want to tear into the old one until I have the new one in hand.

After I retire next year, I'll tell you some stories about the Gov't delivery service I work for.

Shouda got it from Amazon. I'm surprised Gander RV didn't have one. It's a standard RV part:

Should have gone that route. Now, if I cancel the order, I get hit with a restocking fee for something they don't even have.

Could you not just put in a plug to stop it (temporary)?

I had this same part fail on a 9 month old 2020 4 winds 31Y. Camping world didnít have one and said they could take pictures and file warranty claim. Would take a month or more. I went to WW and got a cheap plastic fitting for temporary use until the one from Amazon arrived. Works great. I now carry a spare.

After waiting a couple of weeks on Thor, I bought one off Amazon and installed it today.

Wish they would have left a little slack in the lines to make the install easier.

The original was tan.

The one I put on was white.

The one from Gander is black.

I have the Mod Squad.
