I too got a replacement valve from the manufacturer (no charge/free shipping) due to a hairline crack. My valve is not like YOUROO's and I think it is rated at 200psi. I did bypass it though when I did my blow out. I guess I just got lucky that the blow out cleared the nozzle.

Problem Solved!!!

I assume this was from the backpressure in the line. I wonder if threre is another anti backflush valve somewhere. It doesn't seem like just "stuff" where the water sprays into the tank could create this problem.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Forrest
I hooked the air tank up to the black water flush inlet, turned on the air and Viola! I heard the clog come loose and the line was clear. Hooked up the water and I can now hear the sprayer working.

I hooked the air to water line adapter which is normally used to clear water from the lines when you winterize. Had about 75lbs of pressure in the tank, and turned it on. What a relief!

The adapter is available at Camping World or your camping accessories store for less than ten bucks if you don't have one. I should have thought of it before.

Thanks for all the suggestions and ideas, I appreciate it. All of the comments cause you to put on the old thinking cap.

Happy Trails (And clean black water tanks, LOL),

Forrest

Yes it is located in the hot water compartment upper right hand corner.
It is a blue waterline to a 90 degree elbow that goes into tanka nd sprays.

Thanks,after finding it,found the water was coming from the hose on the bottom of the one way valve and running down the hose. Got the leak stop for now with tape,out on a trip,will fix better when i get home.

We have a 2014 352XL that water pours out of the hot water tank compartment when I try and flush the black tank.

With my Atwood I will loosen the plastic plug till I can turn it with my fingers.
Once it is loose I stand off to one side and reach as far as I can to take it out and then flip the pressure relief valve.

I guess I'm not understanding. .. my leak is coming from inside the compartment that holds the hot water tank. There is no way I can see to get to it unless you physically pull out the hot water tank.
