53FLYINGCLOUD, I routinely use a pressure regulator at the connection to the water source since I have three of them from my previous unit. I have one attached to each of my hoses along with quick disconects on each hose. I use them in spite of the fact that my unit has a built in pressure regulator also, but your advice is sound. I use them to help keep my hoses from bursting or being damaged.

Thanks . . .

Mark (MW64OVERLANDER),
I just wanted to close the loop. I received the Sloan Vacuum Breaker rebuild kit from Hirsh on Friday and installed it on Saturday. It works great. One more item off the list, . . . many, many more to go. But were goin' to the International anyway.

Joe

I retrieved my part which generated my original question on this thread from the dealer with whom I left it the other day. He had not thrown it away.

With the aid of a magnifying glass, I found that my part has the following stamped into its side. "Watsons Vacuum Breaker 4900 v" I suppose that answers my original question. It is a vacuum breaker.

Does anyone have a source for either a replacement of this vacuum breaker or for a rebuild kit like the one mentioned above for the the Sloan part? What vacuum breakers, if used, are used on newer units?

You might look at this vendor's offerings. Scroll down to vacuum breakers near the bottom of the page.

Thanks tcwilliams. Gosh you are fast. My part appears to look just like the volume control part no. 477, but I suppose what I need is the vacuum breaker part no. 4900 that appears just below at the very bottom of the page. In fact, I notice that it has the same 4900 part number on it. Can't tell if it is the same manufacturer, but that doesn't matter to me. Thanks again.

You know this is REALLY something. I found out a solution to my problem here on the forum in less than five minutes that contact with an Airstream dealer and his contact with the factory could not resolve. To me, that speaks volumes. Thanks again tcwilliams and all of the other forum members who stand by ready to help.
