Need to be clear

I have a 2000 tradewinds, model 7373. I have asked this question before but i must be clear on this. The one way valve that screws into the water heater tank has an arrow on it. Does it point toward the tank or does it point toward the cabin interior. I ask an RV man today and he said it will point away from the tank. It seems as if i have been told on this forum that the arrow must point toward the tank. Any experienced help on this will be appreciated. Getting it ready after a leak in the Pex that ws connected to the part that screwed onto the one way valve. Thanks, Rivrduk

Arrows indicate the direction of flow.

If an inlet valve, then toward the WH.
If an outlet valve, then away from the WH.

I have an '01 and NRV, but am not familiar with the one way valve you mention.

Inlet is on the bottom of the tank.
Outlet is on the top of the tank.


I have a 1999 Tradewinds and I'm not familiar with the check valve on the water heater. I have a bypass valve in the plumbing bay and I suspect my check valve is there as well.

Hooray! I have it connected correctly as the cold comes in at the bottom and the hot out at the top. Cold water can come in at the bottom, but nothing can come out at the bottom. Now i have trouble getting the nylon/silicone type plug to not slightly drip when i put the plug in the drain hole outside. I have put a bunch of teflon tape on it but i still have a very slow drip. The tighter i screw it the more it leaks. I have purchased new plugs and i am thinking about teflon and plumbers paste on the tape. I have tried it four times and am worn out emptying the tank. WHEW!!! Thanks, rivrduk

Look under your sink at the tank from the inside. On the inlet at the bottom i think you will find the one way valve screwed into the tank. I too have the valve in the water hook up area to bypass the HW tank. I thank you for all the help you have given me. Rivrduk
