Need water help

Trying to dewinterize. Filled the fresh water tank and water goes right out of the hose to the ground. There is no cap on that hose. Is there a shut off valve somewhere. Why is it draining right out? We left the hose connected to the city water input and can run water that way. What's w the fresh water tank? Thanks

I know we have different campers but my shut off was tucked up high and I had a hard time getting my hand up along the side of the tank to open / close it. I added a new valve to the drain below the tank. Maybe your valve it above just out of sight...

What model? In our 2250, the water drain valve is accessed via the drivers rear storage compartment. Open the compartment, look high to the left, near the ceiling for a round access port. Open the port, the valve is just inside.

Here's a pic of the valve from inside the space containing the tank and plumbing - you can see the drain valve and the inside of the access port:



Hope that helps!

Look right where the water comes out the underside and go straight up that line until you find the valve.
