Hi Don,
Yes I did see your additions for using air to clear all of the lines and manifold, and am glad you included it in your docs. This is very important information, and I really think Jayco should add it to their documents. Maybe they have, and I just haven't been able to find it.

I've added your information to my winterizing procedure and will update my drawings and information when I get a chance.

Thanks again for your information, Bob

Bob,

I was wondering if this is why some RVs have manifold valve failures and leaks.

I gave Jayco my documents. To date, I have not been impressed with their interest in making improvements to their design flaws.
Although the support group has helped me get through these problems they refuse to let me talk engineer-engineer. IMO this is why these designs never get improved. My guess is that the engineering dept doesn't know about them or isn't held accountable to fix them on the next version....sigh!

I have no doubt the general lack of information has caused failures in this as well as other systems within the motorhomes or campers. This is a can of worms that has been opened so many times that I hesitate to say anything about it.
I don't post very often in owners groups, but I read them a lot. Guess that's the only way we can pass along our information.
Thanks, Bob

Thanks for the document its a nice addition to our docs. BTW did you notice the additional valve positions that I added for winterizing? It occurs to me that there is a couple of cases that during winterizing water could be left in the line/valves?
I thought that winterizing position was for sucking up antifreeze but mine only sucks up when I turn to water drafting. I know I could have said siphon lol

When those plastic valves leak, use Vaseline then they work as new.
ALJO, I’m Searching for help with my issue and I came across this thread, which I already commented on. But I’m looking for help with an issue I’m having. The plastic T on mine is leaking. I guess I’ll have to take it apart. You said use Vaseline on the plastic valves, are you talking about the valve stems or the threads connecting the Plumming?

Greetings and thanks to all those offering information on this subject. Has anybody installed the Floe 636 Induratec Integrated Water Drain-Down System? Can anybody advise where it should be tied into the plumbing system on a 2020 model 29MV? Thank you and have a Blessed day.

I was looking into those for a while now and I wouldn't benefit from it. Once I winterize her, that's it. She's done till warmer weather. I suppose it's great for those that use their RV off and on in the winter. Neat product.

Not everything is brass. I replaced all of the plastic fitting with brass after chasing leaks. Do it now before you ruin your floors and walls.

I purchased the brass valves at Lowes. They were not a manifold as such but individual valves. I imagine you can get them at (ugh) home depot as well.

Did they work?

Jayco Parts informed me yesterday that they are different. There is a T (tank) and I (inlet) 3-way valve, which makes sense, because they are mirror images of each other.

They work just fine. Installed about a year ago no problems so far.

Recently purchased a Melbourne 24L and the water center appears to work properly for everything except "Normal" operations. The water pump will come on but not pumping or pressurizing the system. Dealer believes it is a defective water system valve. These schematics will help, but has anyone else experienced or have any thoughts? Thanks!
