Hey! That's what I have been looking for.
Mine leaks too but not for long. Gonna get a brass one and change it out.
Did you change yours yet?
Any advice?

Thanks for posting the photo.

My '09 Rockwood had one and it was bad from the start. It was located behind a panel in the street side rear pass thru.
I flooded the carpet in the bedroom twice before I found it!

I think most of them are crap...my first one failed...noticed water dripping from corner of trailer...was spraying inside and luckily headed towards the corner. Dealer replaced it. Now a year later, noticed the same thing the last time I used it. I'll replace it with something better (brass maybe) this time and hope it lasts. Great idea and helpful when it works.

Can I use this to replace my black-water-rinse backflow preventer?

what was it on?
on mine the one on the black water flush looks more like a vacuum breaker. i didn't really examine it though.

when we required back flow preventor at my former place of employment, it consisted of 2 check valves in series with a pressure release between.

I just had a little water trying to weep thru the threads and make a drip about every minute, so i just kept tightening it so far so good.
