2012 Georgetown

I'm attaching a couple of pictures of our 2012 Georgetown, hoping to find out which valve to turn to empty the fresh water tank. I've talked to others on this web site, but their water valves are located next to their propane tank. Why doesn't forest river put this in their manual? It says nothing about this compartment.

IMO, the GT "manuals" are only good for fire-starters. I got every piece of documentation on our 02 from the original owner. The generic owner's manual refers to a "model-specific" manual, but there's no sign of one in my documents.

I have the same setup in my coach. Those valves have nothing to do with draining your fresh water tank; they shut off access from the water pump. To drain the fresh water tank, you will need to open one of the plugs on the tubes underneath that compartment. If you look under your coach, you will see 5 tubes. The red and blue tubes together are the low-point drains for your hot and cold water lines respectively. The large tube with the screen is the overflow tube. The fresh water drain is one of the blue tubes alongside the overflow tube.

Thank you for your reply. I'm glad that you know about this stuff. Forest River should have offered that information in their manual. Thanks again for the info.

No problem, I had to find that out for myself. Sometimes, that's the only way.

I've included a picture of the hoses on the bottom

So, just wondering..... what the other blue hose is for? There are two blue hoses with the screen.

Don't really know, but my best guess is that it may be the fridge drain.

Strange enough, i just called a tech from dealer where i bought our 2012 378, i got 3 hoses back there,one is fresh water tank overflow ( screened ) so tech says there is no place other than the blue hoses to drain fresh water, an so i did .However an i looked back thur the conversations an i don't see this mention, Lp tank has an electric, i'll call switch on front of my tank, what i believe it to be is an electric shut off if sniffer in coach goes off, mine is hot to touch, in fact very hot, is everyone else like that ? thanks for reading

You are correct about the solenoid valve for the propane tank. It is electrically controlled through the LP Leak Detector. It will be warm to the touch since it's activated and pulled to the open position. If you're not using your propane for any period of time you could turn off the Leak Detector and the valve will close and cool down. However should a leak occur the alarm is disabled. I know the solenoid valve gets warm but it should not be too hot to touch.
