Need help on following questions for Puma 351THSS

We are in the process of getting our 2nd Toy Hauler. Looking at the Puma 351THSS. My questions and I would like pictures if you could are

1. With the slide open are the tanks easy to get to to drain ? Mine now you must crawl under the slide to drain them.

2. Where is the electrical hook up located.

3. If you get electrical jacks where are the controls for the rear stabilizers located.

4. Where is the water fill located and the outside shower.

5. Where is the battery located.

6. Does the unit have a disconnect switch. Mine now has one in the kitchen.

7. Where is your tank level monitor located. Mine is in the bathroom now and a PIA.

8. Do the exterior flood lights above the ramp door come on when backing the fifth wheeler up. Mine does now which is a nice feature when dark out.

9. Where is the hot water tank located.

10. Water pump location too.

Sorry for all the questions but no brochure tells you this stuff.

2. Located above sewage drain.

3. Not sure.

4. Awning side near entry door.

5. Not sure.

6. Not sure.

7. In kitchen between sink and stove.

8. Not sure.

1. With the slide open are the tanks easy to get to to drain ? Mine now you must crawl under the slide to drain them.


It is behind the slide out by approx. 2', very easy access w/slide out

2. Where is the electrical hook up located.


Directly above the grey/black tank drain / next to city water hook up

3. If you get electrical jacks where are the controls for the rear stabilizers located.


On the awning side of the trailer at rear corner just above the jack itself. (easy access-switch is mounted on exterior wall, not under camper)

4. Where is the water fill located and the outside shower.


Outside shower is on slide out wall in front of slide out

5. Where is the battery located.


At the wall just behind pin box next to generator box

6. Does the unit have a disconnect switch. Mine now has one in the kitchen.


Not sure

7. Where is your tank level monitor located. Mine is in the bathroom now and a PIA.


In the kitchen

8. Do the exterior flood lights above the ramp door come on when backing the fifth wheeler up. Mine does now which is a nice feature when dark out.


Ours do not-the are controlled by a switch inside the garage area

9. Where is the hot water tank located.


Under fridge-access is next to front door on awning side of camper

10. Water pump location too.


Under sink

Notice the one at K&K has 2 Coleman 15k AC units and a 12 gallon hot water heater!!! That is the way ours was built and that 12 gallon hot water heater is AWESOME!!! Plus the 2 15k Coleman AC units will get the trailer colder than you can stand on a 95* day with 100% humidity in about 15 minutes flat!


IF you order a 351, I would definitely want those 2 options!!!


I see you have a 800S, we have a XP1000 Desert Edition and have plenty of room in the garage area for the RZR, gas grill, propane bottle spare tires/wheels, and other misc stuff.

Seems most questions were answered. The one that wasn't is the disconnect switch. It does not have one. I added one to mine in the battery compartment.

The rear lights coming on with reverse would be nice. If I need them I just jump in the back and hit the switch.

I never even saw the option for the 12 gallon water heater on our order sheet.........................

And it seems all the 2016 Puma pictures I find have the Coleman A/C, which makes me wonder about the Dometics prior years had. I have 2 15K Dometics. 2 a/c's is the only way to get the garage to cool well.

Thanks all for your help. Signed papers last night. They have to order it, told me a couple weeks. A 12 gallon water heater was not an option, but I did get the 6 gallon gas/electric. Got the 50 amp service, but did not get the 2nd A/C, but did get a vent in the garage that was extra and changed all fans to create a breeze fans. Water heater by-pass, upped to 15,000 btu a/c, slide awning, electric jacks and also the premier edition. The reason for getting this gilwilliams101 is the wife said to upgrade to a 900s lol. The hyperlite only had a 9 foot garage and the buggy would not fit so we had to upgrade.
