PS: make sure you have enough gas in the truck before you leave - "....If it weren't for bad luck, Id have not luck at all..."

on the water heater the bottom should be the cold line and the top should be the hot line Look on the heater or the enclosure for the heater and it should be marked. Another good thing to do is get some RED electricians tape and mark all the hot lines.

Thanks. If I remove the clamps and toss them, do I need to replace those sections of hose too, or can I just use the same hose and put regular hose clamps on it?

if you don't damage them, I think you can reuse -

I'm also now wondering : if the valve handle broke off that easily, perhaps the valve itself is bad and that's causing the back flow issue

I replaced all of my valves when I found one with a small leak....

The are horrible and for a small cost Jayco could save us all a lot of head aches. Smartest thing I have done.

Good luck.

Jim, I'm guessing you're right (and I hope you are).


Sask, I was thinking the same thing, I'm going to buy several valves and clamps and replace the whole deal. Do you remember if they were 1/2" barb inlet and outlet valves? So far I think that's what I've seen online.


Might take me a couple days, so stay tuned, I will post when I have had a chance to tackle this beast. The valve handle literally fell off in my hand with very little pressure.

Warming the pex with a heat gun might help make it e little easier to work with. Makes it a little more "rubbery". Those little brass pex valves arent cheap. I think I paid $15 a piece.

Those $15 valves will outlast and out perform the cheep s***tty plastic factory valves.

As soon as one of them fails, all of them in the area will get replaced with brass. The PEX gets replaced with braided steel hose assemblies.

Another common problem that can cause the same problem is turning the outside shower off at the sprayer while leaving the faucet valves turned on. When you draw water from another faucet, it allows the hot/cold to mix and can cause some confusion.
