No that statement is not correct, there is NO backflow preventer on my flush. It is straight hose to the Black Valve. They are using that as a preventer. Water can only flow one way through it. I have been through my whole system if they were to put one in they forgot on 2012 models or on mine at least. The garden hose that they use for that line hooks directly to the inlet. I'll take a picture of it next time I pull that panel. That's how I found were they installed that Black valve that is required by there code.

Just take a picture of the outside hose connection with the cap and screen removed.

Here are the pictures Took the screen out shows nothing, took a picture of the line connected to the outside, NO back flow. dropped the line to the hose to drain the line from the from the black valve you can see the pink that came out never flushed that line will do when I need to use the flush system if I had a check valve you wouldn't see pink.

I would go to Lowes and get a brass back flow valve, connect it at the hose connection and connect that hose to the black tank flush and throw the other hose and vent/backflow in the garbage. Get more pressure at the flusher anyway, but that's just me. Read your email.

That makes no sense at all, Yes it would provide any back flow, but it will not stop the one in wall from leaking at all. That is the problem either I cut an access whole in my bedroom wall or remove the shower surround. NO thank you. I hope it last not like the others....

You cut the hoses going to the one in the wall and connect the hose to the flusher directly to the inlet and newly installed brass back flow preventer. The one in the wall can't leak if it isn't hooked to anything.

What i wrote was the pipe in the wall is not accessible, If it was that easy without tearing out walls and dropping my bottom or cutting and access whole, it's inaccessible. I could cut the line before it go's up the wall but I still need to attach it to the line running to the jets. You can't do that the way they have it set up. I just love when people make comments and really do not understand. It is my problem and I'm sure I will figure something out if it means cutting a whole in the bedroom wall or dropping the bottom. I can take the shower faucets off as I did but there is no slack in the line to pull it up to the whole for the shower faucets. I have 3 options only.#1 remove the shower surround #2 cut an access whole in the bedroom wall. #3 remove the bottom cut and reachable line and reroute it under the floor to the tank. I thank you for all your opinions. Until someone see's what would have to be done I guess people do not understand. I guess the pictures didn't help. Thanks for all your suggestions. I will ask about it at the 2015 rally. Once again thank you everyone. Not all trailers are the same I have found out even the same brand.....

Glenn, do you not have 2 hoses going up to the valve in the wall? One would be from the hose connection and one coming down the wall and going to the sprayer. What I am saying is the one coming down the wall and going into the tank is the one you would cut and the one going from the hose connection up the wall, you just disconnect or cut leaving the valve undisturbed in the wall. Then just connect the hose going into the tank to the hose connection. If you have access to the hoses in the pictures, you don't have to do anything to the valve in the wall, just leave it hanging there. It looks like both hoses are in the picture going up the wall and have what looks like a wire tie around them in the far back of the picture.
