1 - Pump drain, there appears to be a hose coming from the water pump that has a valve on it. This hose was under the sink and inside the camper with a little bit of water on the floor in there. I cleaned that up, realized it was closed and that it must be a drain. There is also a hole on the floor of the camper there that it looks like that hose goes through. I don't know why it was pulled up, but should it be pushed back through and stay that way or does it need to go into the camper for transport? If I can push it back through and leave it, I'll put some expanding insulation in there to keep critters/bugs out.
2 - low point drains - how often and where do you drain these (at the camp site)? To drain water heater, I assume I leave the hot and cold valves open and just use the low point drain to release it (what dealer mentioned)?
3 - screwing into the body/roof. I want to put a 45w solar panel on the roof, 4 screws per panel, 3 panels. I assume I'll use some household 25 year caulk all over the hole and screw, but what screws and how deep (self tapping and 1" penetration)? I also want to mount some camco levels once I get it leveled this weekend for ease of use. Would the same work for the front and side walls exterior? Is 1" penetration too far?
4 - I haven't located my black tank flush fitting. I found the drain and was successful there, but anyone own one of the SLX 264's and know where the fitting is to connect the flush hose?
5 - Accessory propane connection - my wife doesn't let me cook inside. I use my little coleman grill outside for smell/grease. Is there any accessory ports for the propane?
Thanks for all of your help in advance!
1: it's a quick winterizing setup. You'll put that hose into a bottle of antifreeze, turn on the pump, and then open each faucet.
2: I'm new, but I haven't drained anything yet other than for fun and to see how stuff works. I plan to if weeks/months go by and I haven't used it. For now, it hasn't been more than 2 weeks since we've stayed in the camper, so we're constantly using the system.
3: can't help ya.
4: 264bhw does not have a tank flush. A couple products that may help.

Sorry for all the Amazon links. I'm kind of an addict.
