Backflush Valve - 2011 Bungalow 40FER

This is my first post. My wife and I are new at this RV thing but since we purchased our 2011 40FER in May we are so far loving it.

My question is to do with the black tank - The Bungalow does not come with a backflush valve and I would like to have one installed does anyone have any thoughts or concerns about this?

My other question is to ask if the so-called 50AMP cheater plugs really work? This is where this special adapter has to plugs - one for the 15AMP and one for the 30AMP which in theory gives you 45AMP - Does it really work?

Hello DaneWatson! Welcome to the Jayco Forum. If you get a chance, come on over to the new member forum and introduce yourself.

I think you are the first Bungalow owner I have seen here! I have always thought they were neat and wanted to see one in person.

I am not sure how the bungalow is configured, but I have a tank tornado. It does really well at flushing out the system and the tanks.

On the 50 amp cheater, I would be a little concerned with the bungalow. It really depends on how the unit is wired. With a 50 amp connection, it is really two 50 amp 120 volt connectors. If the 50 amp side that you are "cheating" needs more than 15-20 amps, then you could run into problems. Being that it is designed to sit on a semi-perminant spot, I would think it would be designed so that 50 amps is almost required.

Jayco is usually good about providing a wiring diagram. You might consider giving them a call and ask for the details. My guess is they are going to tell you that it is best to go with a 50 amp connector.

Let us know what you find out and send some pics of that Bungalow if you have a chance as well.

Backflush Valve - 2011 Bungalow 40FER

Terry - Thank you for your prompt reply.
I will forget about the 50AMP cheater but I sure would like to get a backflush valve installed.

Yes I will go over to the new member forum and introduce my self.

Here are just a few pictures of our Bungalow - the 8' ceilings throughout seems to make it feel more spacious.

Ernie - Thanks for the welcome, yes you and your wife will love it.

Welcome to the 2012 Bungalow.
We have been in it for a year and still love it.
I did purchase a backflush valve from Camping World and it works great.
I never did use the 30+15 AMP adapter to make a 45 AMP connection so I don't know if that really works. I lucked out and we are now in a proper 50 AMP site.
We live in it full time - love it and you will too.
