Jtrober - went out to the trailer and re-checked the breaker, and you are right. I goofed. Without taking it out, I had seen the male threads clearly on the vertical connection, but the horizontal was turned at an angle and the large thumbwheel looked like it was on the valve, which would make it a female end, but this time I took it out, and sure enough, there are male threads on both ends, like you said. Guess that's my screw-up quota for the month, so I'd better be real careful for the rest of the month, right ?

Anyway - thanks much for your help, and I will order the B&B 571 right away. Have a great day !

P.S. While I had the vac breaker out, blew air through it from the hose connection side, while holding thumb over the tank side, and it was wide open through the cap. Guess that confirms that the valve is the problem.

Could these be breaking from freezing. I blow out the flush line when I winterize.

I suppose it is possible for freezing to be a factor, but I had never used mine since I bought it last fall. And don't know if the previous owner did or did not clear this line. However, I have heard that this vac breaker is supposed to let water on the tank side drain down into the tank, and let water on the inlet side drain back out the hose. It therefore seems that normally there shouldn't be any water remaining in the line.
