We have a 2014 Jayflight 22FB. Yesterday we de-winterized, sanitized, cleaned, lubed, washed, waxed, and made sure everything is still in good working order.
Everything is! Except...the external washer for the black water tank. We hooked the hose up to the external port and turned the water on. We didn't hear the usual whirring sound of the sprinkler and then we saw water running out of the bottom right hand corner below a small storage compartment. So, we turned off the water and cleaned up the mess and took a look. (yes, the dump valve was open)
Inside there is a white hose that runs from the external port to a black plastic valve-looking piece; another white hose runs from the black piece down to the black tank. The best we can find is that this black piece is some type of valve; maybe an atmospheric valve? The water is coming out of the top of it when it is hooked up.

Sorry the black PVC vent pipe behind it makes it hard to see the black T-valve.
We used it last fall on our last outing with no problem, so I'm pretty sure it's not installed backwards (which I've read has been done) so it's either faulty or maybe stopped up? We have never filled the black tank to capacity.
Can anyone shed some light on what exactly this piece is called and if you have had / heard of issues with it?
Thanks in advance!
