City Water Connection and Black Tank Flush Mislabeled

I sanitized my freshwater system this weekend on my new 2016 Whitehawk 27DSRL. Two weeks until its maiden camp out. The city water connection and the black water tank flush are right next to each other, one over the other, directly below the outside shower. I noticed that they were mislabeled with the black water tank flush line running to the shower and the city water line running through the vacuum breaker check valve. So, I thought, why not just swap the lines. It was easily accomplished, problem solved, right? No. When I turned on the water pump to flush the bleach solution out of the water lines, I had a geyser spraying out of the water connection. I did not realize that there was a check valve in the city water connection fitting that is not found in the black water tank flush fitting. Oops. Swapped the lines back. I guess now I just have to remember the fittings are mislabeled or swap the labeling stickers. Has anyone used "Goof Off" to remove and reattach the labels on their TT?
