Question 2020 Pinnacle 36FBTS drinking water system

The DW and I are looking at a 2020 36FBTS. The dealer says the drinking water system not only give you the bottled water at the sink, but feeds the refrigerator and ice maker too. Is this true?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, it is true. It is part of the "Luxury Package", listed as mandatory on the Pinnacle line. We recently purchased a 2020 Pinnacle 36KPTS and our unit has it, however the dealer we purchased from had some early 2020 models on the lot that did not have this option. If the unit you are looking at has a fresh water dispenser in the kitchen sink area then it has this feature and it feeds the sink dispenser and the fridge/ice maker. A 5 gallon water bottle in the basement is the water source for the system and includes a strap to hold the bottle in place while towing. The pump for the system on our unit is mounted in the kitchen island and is rather noisy so check that during your PDI and have the dealer try to deaden the noise is possible. We didn't realize how loud it was until we ran it while parked at our house so I'll be addressing that issue myself before too long.

Thank you for the reply. That is kinda of cool. Do you like your unit so far? Any major issues or others things to ask the dealer about?

Glad to help. We love our unit but just brought it home right before Christmas, haven't taken it out on its maiden voyage yet to discover any issues. Plan to do that in a couple of weeks. No major issues to ask about that I'm aware of but maybe other Pinnacle owners will chime in and give some good tips. Bring a notepad for your PDI or New Owner Orientation so you can take notes.

Congrats on the new rig. We spent the first night in ours Christmas Eve a year ago and are settling in nicely. Most issues were self inflicted and/or related to inexperience.

As for the new fangled drinking water system, I'd have dealer put a Y-valve and selector switch in the basement and strap in a box of chardonnay and Merlot. At least that way the water pump would not be as annoying.

Really, though, good luck with the new rig and enjoy. Ours is making a fine home for us.

TEXTMAN, congrats on the new FBTS. We’re full timing in ours and love it.

JOAN617, Simply brilliant! That angled cabinet at the end of the island in our 2019 may finally have an efficient purpose.

Now I have my first mod to the unit... LOL
We have not pulled the trigger yet, but we are leaning hard toward it.
