After a second thought, our Black flush is a separate input requiring a hose connection. This would be a entirely separate water system not in any way connected to the M.H.. I am curious if "Code" would sill require a Back Flow Preventor.

The back flow preventer is required to keep from fouling the campground water supply!

Its a simple system. See bubbles previous post with the picture. Yes, it's a separate line... mine is just not working should be a simple fix.

Arrowd on the check valve are hard to read, but this it too common an issue. I had this at Sunseeker as well. I'll go check some online spot check direction. Then the valve itself. Maybe we're all just buying the same valve.

This is what my Georgetown MH uses. As can be seen the input is from the bottom through the shut off disk controlled by pressure from outside connection and the top vacuum opening (vented to ambient) allowing input and closure of the disk when pressure is applied/removed. The output side connection (to black tank) is spring loaded to the closed position (toward main valve cavity) and opens when pressure is applied. I know this is not identical to the one in this issue but I believe the internal functioning is the same. Where this item is situated in the unit above floor level; for me 5 feet, well above the black tank, contamination of any sort is a moot issue.

Curosity got the best of me and I checked. Yep, ours is backwards also. For Brian's info, I don't know if the fitting installer is the same guy who run the lines, but the lines were crossed in the bay.
Can the fitting be simply rotated leaving the vent horozontal rather than on top ?

I wouldn't. I don't think it will work sideways.

It needs to be installed just as shown in picture. It has a ball, or similar that drops down and seals it off. Any other positions won't work.. I already check that possibility out..

Resolve, a trip to the local hardware. Sharkbite fittings, reverse the lines.. works like a champ. This way I didn't have to buy crimping tool and all that. Teflon tape of course is a must. Now I need to go to the chiropractor :-/
