Re: Onan Generator strange issue

Duane,

The comments from Apollo do NOT apply to the type of valve used by Dessalator in the watermaker.  There is no way the Dessalator valve can mix from the salt and fresh water supplies if it is working properly. If it could, that would be a bad thing, since there are some situations where salt water could mix with the fresh, and contaminate the boat's drinking water, or you could lose fresh water out the sea chest.

It is really hard to see how this valve could fail in this way. If the seals fail, typically the leak path is to the outside, not between ports.  But... if all the impossible things have been eliminated...

All these thoughts of course assume all the original equipment is still in place...
