Docking Station Question

Hello all - New guy here with a quick question.

I have a 2010 322RLTS and in the docking station, there is a hose\line that I'm not sure what it does. It is directly below the cable connection in the picture below:



bshingleton - I borrowed a picture you had posted since I didn't have one handy, hope you dont mind.

Its a connection that you can hook the hose to ( thats supplied with the unit) and winterize your unit. This male connection is to be only used when siphoning a “antifreeze” solution into the water system. The valves need to be in the same position as shown on panel for winterize minus the fresh water connection and then use the water pump to pull the solution in.

Thanks for the info.
I will have to find out what the part is that connects to it and order one, unless it's hiding somewhere and I haven't found it yet.

It may just pull out like mine does. Just give it a tug because the rest of the hose may be tucked behind the docking station. If it does pull out you simply stick it in a jug of anti freeze and let-er-rip.

Hmm, hadn't thought of that. I'll check it out this weekend and see if there is any extra length of hose back there. I need to get behind that wall in my basement anyway to find my water pump, I think it needs some attention.

Hi, you may come accross a problem with filling the fresh h2o tank using a water jug if you are dry camping, after calling forest river about the issue they they stated that you can use the connection in question to also fill your fresh water tank using the trailer water pump a hose your water container and turning the valving to the tank fill position.
