33 RLDS -- sad, your dealer was paid by Jayco to do a QUALITY demo / delivery.

Ineed help. Filling up my x23b and it just drains back out. The water heater fills but no pressure anywhere. There are two "drains" outside that don't have any caps or valves to shut them off. The water just drains back out when the pump is on.

Find the low point drain valves inside your camper and close them (or open and close them to seat the valves)
Unfortunately, they are not marked. Just a couple of valves on the hot and cold lines (lowest point) that open downwards. You'll have to hunt to find them. Better yet ask the individual that winterized the camper last fall.

Thanks. We had to fill it because we are having a problem with our well and have no water in the house. Lucky for us my mom lives next door. Country living

The guy reeked like cigarettes and bad breath. I was glad he was brief.

There should be separate sets of drain valves for "Low Point" and "Fresh Water." The Fresh Water Drain Valves only drain the fresh water tank(s) (I have two - one for each fresh water tank.) The Low Point Drain Valves only drain the hot water and cold water circuits for kitchen sink, bathroom sink, toilet, shower, and any other faucet (outside shower, etc.) The Low Point Drain Valves will not drain your fresh water tanks - or at least they shouldn't, in my experienced opinion.

LOL.....


I found mine the same way...I was inspecting the underbelly and saw the handles! I was not told about them from my dealer....but I was given a sheet on how to winterize my trailer and written in hand writing was the location of these as well as many other things that pertained to my trailer.

FYI...

I have no drain valves labeled 'Fresh Water' but have two areas labeled 'Low Point' on the outside of my trailer. One 'Low Point' has 2 valves that drain the 2 fresh water tanks (1 valve per tank). Those valves are accessible from outside the trailer. When sanitizing the water system, I drained both tanks (and carried most of the 80gallons -with bleach- that carried to the curb ) so I KNOW they are fresh water drain valves.

The other 'Low Point' should be the low point for the hot and cold water lines. I believe this to be the case, but I have not drained those yet. Also, on my trailer, those valves are actually inside, under the bathroom sink.

Seems Jayco may have some variability in valve naming etc.

i think the factory must have been out of the "Fresh Water Drain" labels when they built your trailer - or there was somebody new there that didn't know. (Or maybe it was built on a Monday. LOL!)

Mine are labeled Fresh Water Drain and Low point Drain. I have seen this observation in another thread - both being labeled as Low Point Drains.

Very likely... a different kind of 'sticker shock.'
