That was one thing I did not understand from the factory. Why did they not use a "black" hose connection there like the "black" on on the opposite side of my unit. It doesn't cost anymore and would make it obviuos. Hopefully your overflow was with limited tank contents. Another tale to laugh about in a few months.

What I cannot understand is why these manufacturers are so adamantly opposed to labeling these things. Not to mention why they refuse to provide adequate documentation in the owners manual.

It is almost like the corporate lawyers have convinced management this falls within "proprietary information" and must not be disclosed without a court order.

I didn't overflow mine, but came close. It is now labeled clearly. Took me 3 weeks to discover I had a black flush for the master bath tank. Dealer was clueless.

Did the same thing on my new pinnacle. The city water and flush are not marked. Easy mistake to make. Was lucky I noticed pretty quickly I was on the wrong one.

Valve handles stripped

The valve handles that connect to the actual valves in my water control panel have stripped out from repetitive turning. (Hot water heater control valves on 2012 Pinnacle). Have had to remove the "handles", and turn the brass valve stems manually, with pliers. This isn't fun. Local RV dealer wanted me to spend 24 bucks for all new valve kits - and I have no idea what they would charge to r&r the three valves.

All I need is NEW plastic handles - not the entire valve! Anyone know where I can get these plastic handles?

Yup...made a label for my old 5er for that very reason. The new 321 has a black collar and cap for the black wash and white for the fresh.....I can even tell which is which without my glasses now.

They eventually did.

Go to a hardware store (or home improvement store) and bring the handle with you, they are bound to have a replacement. Btw, get metal valve handles and they won't strip out next time
