Fullway termination valve

Not sure what the fullway termination valve is or where it's at.

Also we just took ownership of this new 23D and we received a curtesy pack containing a water pressure regulator among other things. I mentioned to the salesman that I thought the Airstreams came with an integrated water pressure regulator. He said no. I've watched many YouTube clips in prep of taking ownership of this Airstream and I swear the clips mentioned that Airstream was one on the only ones that have the integrated pressure regulator. Am I wwwwrong?

That is my understanding also. There have been reports here of the built in regulator failing and causing fill or leak issues.

The water inlet in your photo is for Black Tank Flush, the city water inlet is the other one. Never mix them up.

Your city water inlet has the water pressure regulator built in right there within the assembly, has the pressure it limits embossed on it, and works fine.

I too wonder where/what the fullway termination valve is. The warning tag on mine is on the City Water Inlet. It flushes the black tank too, so I'd better know the whereabouts of this valve.

Fullway termination valve is what almost any RVer knows as your dump valve.
That picture is your black water flush connection, not your fresh water inlet for drinking water.

Fullway termination valve

Is this a term used for the handle on the black water tank?

I believe you are wrong. Airstream's placard is incredibly bad English. NO Airstreamer I know calls the dump valve(s) a flush valve. They are dump valves.

Also, the "fullway termination valve" is missing in action. What is it, where is it?

As you can tell, I am a little hot about this stupidity on the part of Airstream.

The decal is to remind u to open the black water dump valve while using the pictured inlet with a hose (with water running) to flush the black water tank.

The SOB MoHo that is parked next to me in the storage lot has the identical sticker warning about the "fullway" valve, so it's not just an Airstream Stupidity.

I think it's the back flow preventer that fails. Different animal.

It's probably a standard sticker. Just think it though. You want the black tank dump valve (or whatever you want to call it) open so you don't flood the interior of your camper.

You know, when you hook up the flush hose and then your neighbor asks you a question and you go to his trailer and then they serve drinks and three hours later you remember you hooked up the flush hose.

The term "fullway", in this use, is an adjective or definition of the dump valve; meaning the valve in its full open position is open to approximately the same diameter of the connected pipe. The full way is open. It is not a proper name of a specific valve.
A sewer dump valve (blade type) is a fullway valve. A ball valve is a fullway valve. A gate valve can be a fullway valve, but not always.
