Beware: Eagle super light 298 rls owners

Have had my tt six months. Has been almost perfect. Had to drain my black tank a few days ago. Hooked up the tank scrubber to a water hose, opened up the black tank, and turned water to scrubber on. A few mins later, water started to run from underneath my unit. I shut off water, and started looking. To my surprise, I opened the covers inside unit, that expose water heater, water pump and furnace. lots of water ever-place, with the furnace soaked. The scrubber inlet line comes across the furnace, and curves down to floor into black tank. Above the furnace , about 12 inches from sidewall, is a inline pop-vent. The device had froze open and water was ever-place, even into bed area, and down into storage area. After spending several hours clean and drying, my furnace actually fired up the next morning. What a low-end idea to hide a water vent six inches above a furnace. Took out the vent and re-connected the pipe, without the darn vent. Is this going to cause me grief?

That sucks. I know mine goes through the same area before going back to the underbelly. I will have to check for this valve; maybe I'll relocate it to the underbelly for safe measure if it is as you say in mine also. Good luck, hard to say if any damage done would be covered under warranty for freezing issue's; although I could see good reason to at least ask.

A better word would be "stuck" rather than froze. Staying in Yuma AZ for a few weeks. Do not like the thought of cutting open bottom board. I replaced vent with a elbow. Am wondering if the black needs a vent.
