I have a 2005 winnebago adventure,it has a hot water tank check valve and its function is to keep water from going back into tank when winterizing. Mine failed and I had to replace it.Has anyone else had this probelm.

Are you talking about the check valve, or the electronic bypass valve?? My electronic bypass valve never worked, and the replacment a dealer installed did not work either. I had it replaced with a manual valve that DOES work.

Ron,

Yep, we have had the same problem, and it is a fairly common problem. One of the frequent failures we see is when the owner uses air to purge his/her lines for winterizing this is the opportunity to blow some "junk" into the seat of the check valve rendering it incapable of flushing itself out and no longer working. It's kind of a catch-22, if you don't blow the lines you will not remove all the water; if you do, you may fail the check valve. One thing we suggest to all our customers is to keep the water heater flushed well and you eliminate a lot of the source of the "junk".

It's located in a pretty akward place too isn't it? Ahhh, the fun of tinkering.

Happy RV'n

Mike & Lisa

Ron,
The normal failure mode of the valve is "no water flow either direction" Most Winne owners, including me, I've talked with have had this problem.
