I was curious, do you guys run a tube a certain lenght after your dump valves? I mean, if you don't put anything after your dumps, couldn't drit and crap like that get in there and maybe block you valve from fully closing? I was thinking of just running about couple of feet of hose after the dumps but wanted to make sure of how everone was going about this...

Thanks.

Wouldn't that be considered forward pressure??? :p

Anyway... its up to you... you should at least stick an elbow fitting on the end of the valve, to provide a lil turbulance for the air so the valve acts as it should. I know when I redo my valves, I'm gonna run some 3/8" line from the dumps to right behind the grille :D

Man, thanks for all the info guys! I guess I'll run about a foot of line just to be on the safe side. Oh and no, I think it is "back pressure". It's the same concept as your exhaust. Ever try running an engine with no headers? Not cool...

Think about it... whats behind the fill valve??? the tank... the back pressure... at the IN side of the valve.... Now where is the IN side of the valve on the dump valve.... towards the bag, so anything coming out of the dump valve, is forward of the dump valve, hence, forward pressure.
