Winterizing 40BHS

I am planning on winterizing my 40bhs (bungalow) for the first time. Having read the owners manual about a dozen times. I seem to have a problem or two.

The manual states that I need to empty the fresh water tank by opening the relief valve. I cannot find any relief valve (where is this sucker hiding), my electric panel says my fresh water tank is always empty (am connected to park water supply).

Then I am supposed to open all taps and set the bypass knobs on hot water tank (no problem here, I found those), then open the water low point valves (cannot find those, must be hiding with the fresh water tank valve).

Any advise would be helpful, since manual does not indicate where these knobs and valves are located.

Had the same problem

I found my low point drain valves under the vanity in the bathroom.

Wasnt in the manual, although it did state the valves were "probably" inside.

The side of my trailer had a sticker on the side saying low point drain. I went inside and found the same spot (which was in the bathroom) and low and behold, there they were.

all I can think off...good luck

Seems there are stickers outside indicating "important" stuff, like low point drains, etc etc...

At least there are many of them on our unit.

Did you look outside UNDER the trailer? that is where they usually hide.. IF you did not fill the fresh water tank you do not have to worry about that.. the fill for that is separate from the park water supply inlet. Dont forget to drain the hot water heater... there is a plug on it on the outside of the trailer.

Dont forget the outside shower if you have one.
