I just realized, I never asked what theater seating you got? I am about to switch to theater seating as well.

It came from factory with OEM recliners.

The ones sitting in my garage, are Thomas Payne “Momentum Theater Marquee Collection” in Jaleco chocolate, hard to find a good picture of the whole unit. There is 70” of room where the couch is, I double checked at the showroom and they should fit no problem with the wider centre console.

Thanks. I am going to look at this one and a Lambright. I want to see how they feel before I buy. I must say the Thomas pPayne gets rave reviews. I am also thinking of the ultra pleather, since I hope to keep this for another 8 years or so. Man I look forward to the comfort. I will also investigate making the dinette seating more comfortable.

A vacuum breaker is usually found on the spigots at RV parks. If you are looking for the plumbing vent that does not go through the roof, look under the sink in the cabinets.

Pics are under kitchen and bathroom sinks.
Curious as to what kind of mod you plan. Inquiring minds...

uh oh, those are different. My trailer had a vacuum breaker in line. Just bought one on Amazon. I guess it will be of no use. I was going to replace it with a metal one since I already had a flood in the trailer and heard how unreliable the plastic ones were. Apparently this is a different style in the MH. This is what I ordered:

The device Duckogram shows in his pics is a vent for the DRAIN plumbing. The device AbdRahim shows in his pic is a backflow prevention device for a black tank flushing connection.

Although "similar," they are two different devices for basically two different systems.

The first lets air in to assist in drain line draining (similar to the roof vents you see on your house roof). The second prevents black tank water from flowing back into the black water flush connection source.

If you mean the black tank flush anti-siphon valve that you pictured, it is also usually in a bathroom sink cabinet, usually close to your outside black tank flush connection. It should be mounted as in your pic, round head on top, but some folks have reported that the factory installed it sideways (backwards).

It should look like this (this one's a plastic one):


Closeup of the plastic version of the valve:

yup. That plastic one was bad on the trailer and I flooded it on the first trip. I figured I would get a better quality one and either replace the plastic one or keep i.e. on hand just in case. These are up there pretty good. ?I hope there is room for the replacement.

See post #6 here for a PDF on how it should be plumbed, in case you did not know.

Oh, that lil begger. I call it a anti-siphon/check valve. Ours is located in the bathroom, behind the drawer. Its across the cable chase from the auto-transfer switch. Sorry for the confuson.

Plenty of room to get to it.

Thanks Duckogram. Did not think to look back there. Going to pick it up next week. I will take the drawer out and take a look.

Finally got some work done today but the rig is still stuck in the snow at the storage lot. Hopefully I should be able to get it out by the weekend. I put in the coach batteries, and had to replace the chassis battery that didn’t make it through this nasty winter. But the K&N cold air kit installed very nicely, no problems at all and it came really good step by step instructions with photos for every step that matched the rig perfectly.

Brian that looks great. Do you have a 5 star strategy loaded? and if so, do you need a new program?

Edit: Just checked K&N’s site and the CAI does not fit the 2017 chassis!

Thanks, I’m thinking the tune will need an update, I have a email to 5 Star to find out my options. It might be worth you giving them a call to find out about the 2017’s, they sell tuners bundled with the intakes but when you follow the link to 2016-2019 K&N’s it shows the same one I have.

I cant find that link. The 5 star page that lists all the different options is so you can tell them what you have.
