Uni-Dock Utility Center

Have a couple of questions regarding the UDUC on our 377 RLBH Northpoint.

First;

When we picked up the unit and during the PDI we were told to make sure that all the pressure is off the valves before you switch from one position to another. They said this will void your warranty and that Jayco can tell if the valves are bad or if there was pressure still on when they were switched. Can not find anything in the owners manual about this.

Second;

The inputs Cable, satellite & Auxiliary - what is Auxiliary used for? Again we have been forward and backwards in the owners manual and cannot find anything about this.

In advance , thank you for your help.

I read about not having pressure in the valves somewhere, but I have not heeded the advice.
I didn't know they could tell.
I wouldn't have to worry about having pressure in there while switching if they WOULDN'T HAVE TAKEN AWAY THE GRAVITY FEED WATER FILL!!!!

I don't understand why anyone would want to fill the water tank like we have to.

I think that sounds like something the dealer came up with.I have never had a problem with my valves and never worried if they were under pressure or not when I operated them.

Has anyone made a manifold to rinse the black tank without unhooking the main water line? Working on one now but i am thinking that brass is too heavy after putting it together.

Have you tried this? With a backflow preventer attached.

Have you tried using a wye at the faucet? It screws on to the faucet and gives you 2 hose connections. I recommend using a backflow preventer, sometimes called a vaccuum breaker, in the water lines. That is what I use on my rig.

How about something with a quick connect and short pieces of hose.
That way you can screw the hose end to the trailer first. Easier if you don't have anything on the other end.
Then attach to the quick connects.
