The Flextone III will work with any FBV pedal or any FBV MkII pedal.
It sounds like you bought the original Line 6 Floorboard although I'm not sure because we never developed a product called "FBV Floorboard".
Does your pedal say FBV anywhere on the unit?
If not, then you have the Floorboard which is not compatible with your amp. It won't damage the amp if you plug it in but it simply won't work.
We don't offer a trade in program but I can tell you that the older non Line 6 Floorboards are a hot item on eBay as they have been discontinued so you should have no problem getting rid of it for near full or full value.
The optimal pedal for your amp is the FBV Shortboard or FBV Shortboard MkII.

Found most of the answers the other day.
Your right....no FBV....so it's just a FloorBoard. Would be nice to see it listed on the compatibility page.
found a schematic on the rj45 connector.... and the pinout is different. power and grounds look like they are moved around....not good.
after I clean it up.....I'll include a new cable and sell it to a lucky soul.
Thanks for your time...and effort.
