I buried this issue in a previous post, but thought I would reach out again. When I turn my water pump on, my hose on the reel fills up and pressurizes. There appears to be a check valve that isn't checking.

I called Monaco Tech Support and asked them about it, but the guy I talked to said that he was not familiar with any check valves in the system, and he couldn't find anything in any of his drawings. Seems a little odd, as there must be something in there to prevent the hose from pressurizing when you have the water pump on.

I suppose I need to tear that panel out, but was hoping that someone else may have some experience with this before I do any demolition on that compartment.

Thanks -

Your correct. There should be a check ball at the hose connection. If you look closely at the city water hose connector, there should be a check ball just inside the connector that holds the pressure back when using the onboard pump. If you turn the pump on, there should not be any water coming out of this connector.

Great - thanks for the info. Sounds like I need to access the area behind the hose reel? I am not looking forward to that, but maybe that will be a good time to replace my hose anyway.

Thanks again - I will be sure to post up pictures of parts and bloody knuckles once I am done

Kev,

The check ball is in the hose connection just like justlou says. The check valve is suppose to keep water from entering your city connection when you are dry camping with the pump. I had a truck camper that would leak water at the unused hose connection when the pump was turned on. It was that check valve causing the leak which would cycle the pump as the pressure dropped. I purchased a new input hose connection at Camping World but when I went to replace it I found out all I needed to do was clean some trash out of the check valve.

Kev...There is a post somewhere that shows how Monaco cut a slot to get to that hose reel. I think all we need to do now is remove a plate to get to that area...Either do a search or check my Misc photos. I will also try to post the photo when I get caught up (search replace hose reel-maybe )

Yea, I remember seeing that picture. I will just remove the whole panel so that I can do some other housekeeping behind there. I want to re-route some wires, as well as replace the hose on the reel. Its a pain to remove, but I've done it before, so at least I know some of the tricks

Lots of model choices to choose from.

(Just thought you'd appreciate the reminder... in case you've got some money left over to spend after filling up the fuel tank. )

SacsTC does not lie. I did install last year. I am getting a constant 96% on my grey tank, so I am going to make sure all of my wiring is in order when I am in there. The factory guy showed me that I need to tape my wires off to the side (make sure they are not crossing the sensor), so I will do that as well.

Searching for this valve did make me clean out my water pump inlet filter. Good thing - cause it had a lot of plastic shavings in there. One good thing came of this already

I may have a little different configuration as the Dip, but mine was real easy to get to, and the filter was towards the front of the assembly. Just a quick twist and it comes off.

I had shavings and gunk in mine. Cleaned it out and lubed the o-ring with silicone. Haven't noticed any pressure difference, but nice to know it is clean.





Oh, and my hose finally burst last week or so. I had been watching this big buldge for quite a while, and it finally had enough. I wanted to see how long it would actually last I noticed it just before leaving Texas in March, and it lasted until last week.
