Water inlet

I will probably set off a firestorm as I did on a FB page, but here I go. We have the Cedar Creek 38DBRK. It has 2 black tanks, so it has 2 flush lines. It also has the 1 inlet for the potable water and you select by valve if you want water to go to the tank or to the system. To keep from having the pain of closing the faucet valve from campground, bleeding pressure off and then re-connecting, I made a manifold with valves, so that I only have to connect the hose when arriving to campground and disconnecting when we leave. I posted this on the FB page and here came the plumbers that do it for a living, saying the flush lines would siphon back into the lines. My thinking was if that was possible, it would happen just hooking your garden hose up directly to the flush connections. What's y'all's thoughts on this.

Pick up as many of theses as you need for your manifold. Installation is fool proof. Problem is solved.

You should NEVER, NEVER use a potable water hose the touch a sewer connection of ANY kind! Not even a back flow check valve. Listen to the PROFESSIONALS!

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant
