Slideout Isolation Valves

Has anybody really experimented much with the slideout isolation valves in the utility bay? I only played with it for a few minutes, and if I remember right the one I closed didn't stop the one I thought. That's been months ago and I haven't just gone through it in depth since. But, looking at the labeling, that doesn't make sense either, at least not 100%. One would think main would be the large main living room slide. Bed, obvious. Opposing, in ours you would think it'd be the opposing bunks in the back. Kitchen, don't have a kitchen slide out.

Anybody with a 35QB4 experiment with them and see which valve isolates which slide? Wondering if the sticker is just generic and I'm going to have to make my own.

On our 34RLSA the "main" is the kitchen slide, "opposing" is the curb side dining/LR slide and the bed is the bedroom slide.

Since we can't open the fridge with the slide in... its nice to be able to open only the kitchen slide when reloading groceries.

I do not trust any labels, just pull or push each one and then you will find out, I had to do it with my 12v side and 110 side and then marked them my self. It depends on who was working that day on the line as sorry as that sounds.

On mine the "Main" is the dinette/couch, "Bed" is the bedroom, "Opposing" is the door side bunk, and "Kitchen" is the off-door side bunk.

Of course, YMMV, since that's a pretty long way back for the factory to keep track of two little hoses...

Thanks for all the feedback. Looks like I'll making a new decal for sure. Not sure why they even put it on there if there's no consistency from unit to unit, but, I'm not surprised either. I'll experiment when I get home. It's possible ours is like MIFarmers, but I'll verify soon.

Biggest thing I'd use them for is treating seals, and waxing the ends of the slides, that is, between the off door side bunk and dinette slide. Quite a squeeze to get in there. Also for grocery loading. Although we can open our fridge, it's a tight squeeze to get to it.

It is on my to-do list to fix our labels. Two are wrong and it took some experimentation to properly identify them. Here are my labels versus reality:

MAIN - Main
MAIN 2 – Bunkroom Right
OPPOSING – Bunkroom Left
BED – Bedroom
KITCHEN - Galley

Mine do not have the pretty panel and label. I have white tape out of a Brother label maker on the valve itself. The hydraulic jury rig works but is mechanically ugly.

I'll probably rid of the decal and use the label maker or something. Black flushes weren't labeled either, so had to put stickers on them. My wife is very particular about knowing what is where and how it works. Usually I did a majority of everything, now full timing and me being gone half the time, she wants it where she can understand exactly what everything does. I respect that, and will fix her up.

Are your black flushes flip-flopped too (front port for back tank and vice-versa)?

Can't remember off hand, but I think so. The one I thought would be front, was not. I think the upper one, kind of to the left is the rear tank, and the lower one was the front tank.
