Fixed!

I got mine back from the dealer and she's all good now. On the 350 access is quite tight but after the spray foam around the area and around the hose to the anti siphon valve was removed, it made it much easier. Also, the water heater was attached to the flip up panel which required removal of the water heater flashing and some disconnection to gain access. All in all it was 5 hours of labor for a $10 part!

I'll post some pictures once I get them from the dealer. On that note, anyone in the Quinte area of South Eastern Ontario needing a great Forest River dealer contact Carl Cox RVs, 613-966-9200. Glen Cox is the service manager.

2013 GT351DS. Oh, great! I haven't used the black tank flush yet and this is what i should expect? you do have the black tank drain valve open while rinsing the inside of the tank, yes?

I left the black tank valve open. It was my first time flushing and it leaked. I didn't try it during the PDI. On a good note, it's been a month and 600 miles and everything else has been flawless.

do you have the lippert steps or kwikee brand? my lippert steps broke at less than 1K miles. FR replaced them with the kwikee brand for free, but dealer took over a month to replace them.

Sure was open, but as you'll see by the attached picture, not much water was making it to the nozzle let alone the black tank.
