Caught our 36FB peeing on the ground last night!
I'm sure there has been at least a thread or two started regarding the following, but I'm needing just a simple answer regarding location;
While in the bathroom late last night, my wife heard what sounded like running water directly beneath her, but outside like it was flowing onto the ground. Upon going outside to check, I found the overflow pipe for the fresh water tank discharging a fair amount of water onto the ground. NOT GOOD! Especially since we are hooked to the city water supply all of the time, and have not filled the fresh water tank for at least a month or two prior to finding this leak. Note: it has discharged water through this overflow pipe in the past, (like it is supposed to do if you overfill the tank) but usually stops flowing within moments after shutting the fill water off.
Coming from the engineering tech background as related to hydraulics as I do, I was immediately suspicious of the in-house check valve the RV industry uses to separate the city water feed and the fresh water tank connection into the common (shared) water pipe distribution system to prevent cross feeding into the tank and overflowing it. So, my question is, where would I find this defective check valve so that I can replace it? I've search all in the basement's utility area and traced both the cold and hot water pipes, but have yet to find any check valves. I bet Traveling Texans would know this answer, or anyone else who owns (or has owned) a Redwood 36 FB. Thanks in advance for your answers.
