Curious were you using a pressure regulator on the hose to flusher? Not saying that caused it but interesting to know. I've argued for thier use on that flusher.

Had one fail in my cougar but pretty sure it was because I forgot to winterize the black tank flusher. Yes they are a hazard for sure.

I'm not sure why you'd have to winterize the black take flusher.
Never have in mine.

It's open on the tank end and unless it's plugged the water would just run out.

Right?

Ours failed this summer, water running out of the bathroom vanity. I managed to pull the water lines down, and replaced the valve with a 75 cent 1\2 inch fitting from our hardware store.

hmmm not proud of how I found it but, first I partially removed my water htr to see where the flush hose amongst 35 other hoses went....pulled the fireplace, then pulled cable connection plates in the ent. ctr......and wala found it there opposite the shower control panel.

If it has a vacum valve water will sit in that and freeze and crack it and the pipe that goes up to the valve.

I'm having trouble seeing the point of a vacuum valve. The black tank is vented- it shouldn't be able to pull vacuum, right? A back-flow prevention valve I could see.
