I have a 2011 2612 and it's located down below the storage thing to the left side of the bed. There's 4 screws you take out to remove the cover and there's 3 valves there.

Thank you. I found it. There is also access through the pass through storage area from outside the trailer.

Also does yours have a water filter? I cannot seem to find one anywhere that would be easily accessible.

I had a water leak so I've been all through this trailer. I've never seen a water filter but you could probably install one under the sink. We just use the water for showers and to wash dishes.

I have tried to find a place to get under the sink and cannot figure out a way aside from tearing stuff apart. Is there an easy way to get under there?

Yeah it's pretty tight under there. Maybe you could install it in-line between the fresh water tank and the water pump under the trailer? Not sure if that's a good idea or not.

Probably wouldn't want to put it in the suction line. That may cause damage to the pump if it has to pull harder.

One more thing I am not sure about is if the water heater will run off of electricity as well as gas. Do you have an answer for this?

Thanks again and sorry for any inconvenience.

I'm not sure if they changed from year to year but on my 2011 both furnace and water heater are gas only.
