2016 X17Z Fresh water cut off and antifreeze inlet

Hello folks! My wife an I are going to take the trailer out this weekend for an over night trip (our first) and I am going to dewinterize the trailer before we pull out on Saturday. I plan on rewinterizing once we pull back into town but, I am having a hard time locating the fresh water tank cut off and the antifreeze inlet. Anyone with this same trailer have any advice? I found the water heater bypass valves but the others are not located in the same compartment.

Thanks!

Check under the rear dinnet seat.. That's where it was located on a 2011 x17z

Thanks for the reply. I will have a look again once it's light out. The manual really has been pretty useless in this case.

NOt sure where you live or will camp but it might make more sense to NOT dewinterize and to use water from a container for drinking and food prep and CG facilities for other things. If it is below freezing while you are out or when you get home you will risk frozen pipes. Even if you have a glacier package its not worth the risk.

As much as I agree with you that the manual lacks some stuff, I would put more "blame" on the dealership you purchased from for not giving you a more in depth delivery orientation. They should at least be showing you where all your trailer components are located and the basic operation of them.

Yep. that's where it is on my 2010 and I doubt that they moved those valves. Makes sense to keep them near the water pump.

To be clear, look under the dinette seat next to the fridge. You'll need to remove a few screws to lift out the panel. Look straight down near the pump and you should see a valve on the water line and a valve for the antifreeze line.

Yes, there it was. I had to unscrew the seat. I had the dealer winterize it before we towed it home after our delivery inspection. I figured since they left the seat unscrewed over the water heater, this was the only seat with mechanical workings under it.

Thanks for all the replies, it's much appreciated.

I left the screws out on my 23b to make access easier, in the future.
