CoCo, I have no idea if the valve is connected to the shower or not, I've never looked.

I have a sprayer installed in the gray tank also and I can see both lines going to the female connections in the plumbing bay. I'm not going to worry about it as everything is working fine.

Maybe if I get bored while sitting in Mexico, I might take a look.

It's usually the bacflow preventer valve that has cracked. Usually located near water entry point, often under bathroom sink. This Cash Acme 17383-0000 V-101 1/2-Inch Brass Anti-Siphon Vacuum Breaker (Amazon) is an awesome replacement for the cheap plastic back flow preventer valve used in our RV which cracked and would have cost more than twice what this cost! I added two pvc plastic 1/2" pipe nipples and this fit right back where the plastic valve had been. I expect this solid brass piece will be much more durable.

If this panel isn't there, you can cut one to get to the sprayer. I'm going to the coach and will take a pix and post

Dons2346 - Sorry, I am late to the party.

I am interested in cutting an access panel into the opposite end of the plumbing bay above the hydronic heater. How much depth can I have with a saber saw blade before I cut into a plastic tank or other appurtenance?

Just thinkin' out loud, maybe a side grinder with a very thin (1/16th inch) wheel would be a better idea since I don't know the configuration of the tanks and washer hose, fittings, etc. I guess I could remove the whole caulked panel, but what a hassle.

If you get the nerve to cut into yours I would appreciate hearing if that worked and how thick the fiberglass is. Except for 4 feet we have identical coaches. Thank you.

Bob - Thanks, I have a Dremel tool, but prefer my small Makita grinder with a 4" X 1/16" cutoff wheel. Lots easier to control and cut a straight line. Not to mention an order of magnitude faster. Of course, there is that old saying...something about haste and waste...I forget!

First thing is the tanks are inset about 6" so unless you have a long blade, you are safe when cutting the fiberglass. The opening itself is 20"x6 1/2 ". The top horizontal cut is made by measuring down from the top of the compartment approx 2". The forward vertical cut is made 10" from the front side of the compartment. Would have taken more pictures but it was raining up here in the PNW.

Very nice.

We are heading out for a four month trip west next week. When we get back, I am planning to cut an opening in the wet bay above the Hydronic heater to gain access to the black water clean out spray nozzle and add an additional spray nozzle to the grey water tank. Our '98 Intrigue had both, but for some reason, only the black tank has a rinse nozzle on this coach.

We are planning on stopping by Junction City to visit the birthplace...it would be nice if they had nozzle parts in stock. Maybe we can even purchase some panel stock to cover the hole. If not, I will fab some cleats to epoxy to the inside of the bay to secure the cutout. The panel clips are available on amazon, in just about any standoff you want, from flush to over 1".

We shall see. Thanks for the photos and measurements.

Regards, Rick.

Rick, you can get all the parts at any rv supply place. You need a water inlet, some hose, hose clamps, and the spray nozzle. Most likely even Camping World has the stuff

I have a 2000 Intrigue 40 foot. I've been unable to locate the black water tank backflow preventer. It is not in the bathroom sink cabinet. Anyone with this model know where it is? Thanks!

open the bathroom sink cabinet, look at the far right hand corner vertically near the hinge, you will see it.
