RE: Water valve directional?

Thx everyone. Drew had the answer I was looking for. It was some old gate valves that I ran into this issue with in ancient times. Thx to all who answered.

RE: Water valve directional?

That is a standard 3-way valve Valve handle indicates direction of flow In-line like in the photo *water comes from fresh water tank and then goes to pump suction inlet Turn 90* ---handle towards anti-freeze line *Pump will suck anti-freeze and discharge it into RV Plumbing system Thx OB - I didn't really state my question very well. I'm familiar with what the valve does, I just need to know if the direction of flow matters. So if I leave the valve as shown and reverse the water flow going through it, does that cause any problems like it does with some brass valves? S

Water valve directional?

I know valves similar to this one in the plumbing world are sometimes directional, and have an arrow on the body. They will leak if installed backwards. This one has no arrow but I still wonder. Top line is input to pump, bottom line comes from tank and line at 9:00 is the antifreeze tube. I have reversed the top and bottom lines while re-plumbing for a new pump just to clean things up. So anyone know definitively if these valves are directional or not? https://i.imgur.com/yhSMTDR.jpg?1 BTW, new pump is a Seaflo. Avoid at all costs.

RE: After market exhaust brake reliability and effectiveness

I've had a PacBrake on my truck for 15 years with no problems at all.

RE: First camping trip

Yeah, that whole area is usually heavy with our Canadian friends. We camp at Birch Bay state park at least once or twice a year and have met some of the nicest folks.

RE: Help with zirk fittings

The seal isn't destroyed, it's still there but has been over powered. A seal that leaks will look perfectly normal.

RE: Help with zirk fittings

No, not a valid statement at all. It is indeed possible to have grease flow both out the front and onto the linings. I've seen the results. How can I tell if I did indeed blow out the rear seals? Take the wheel and hub off so you can see the brake pads.

RE: Electric Tongue Jack Power Problem

Sounds like you figured it out - the jack is using the trailer for ground and not the ground at the trucks 7 pin conn. Personally, I would cut the connector off and wire it to my trailers battery like most jacks are.

RE: 50amp EMS w/surge

Lots of wrong info above. Suffice to say, the answer to your question is YES, the 50A unit will work fine on 30A (or 20A or 15A).

IAC valve.

RE: Water heater, anode rod, electrolysis, and teflon tape

Hard to imagine a retired EE (like myself) not just using a DVM to verify continuity. I have done just that and even with 3 wraps of teflon tape, there is still zero ohms to chassis (tank). Same with pipe dope.

RE: Washington state bans new gas light vehicle sales as of 2030

I can see no place where the Gov. has signed this into law. It was narrowly passed by the House and senate and is on its way to our idiot gov. If so, the title of this thread is very misleading and flat out false.

RE: oil leak

You need to resize your pick to 640 x 480 MAX.

RE: On the road, battery and charging problems

Bad battery. Yes, they can go bad that fast. You may also have blown the protection fuse(s) in the converter.

RE: Dangerous Pranks

If you push on the door, the grab handle will open. Try it with a partner you trust. After reading some of the previously mentioned posts, I tried this on my TT. It does, in fact, open as Dave said. I tried it in both my 2003 Wildcat TT and my 2018 Arctic Fox and it worked with both of them - and I mean easily. I think this one went straight from "what if..." to urban legend.

RE: Can't find my water pump

You will not burn up the pump by letting it run dry.
