Vacuum Breaker - Black Flush System


New here, just got our new 2015 Surveyor 226 (really love some of the new 2015 features!). I was going over the access panels and valves for winterizing so I'm prepared. Luckily (somewhat sadly too) I found the line from the vacuum breaker to the black tank had a cut in it, about 5 inches down from the connection. It's cut more than halfway through the line. Plenty of hose so it's an easy fix, but... I have a question on the ball and spring in the valves output check.

I believe the ball goes into the black 571 body, then the spring, then the output hose connection, but I can't tell how it came out. I undid the hose and it popped out but it was hard to see it happening. Anyone have this apart for reference? I couldn't find any information online or an assemble schematic. Only thing I could find is that these seem to fail a lot and I need to watch out for leaking water under my sink. A lot of people see to like to replace with the brass version. I may do the same eventually, but since it's brand new, I'll fix the cut and try things out first.
