Silverback Tank/Drain Location Pictures or Schematic?

Hi,

Does anyone have top-down (pre floor installation) assembly line photos, useful schematics, or personal descriptions of the drain plumbing locations on a recent vintage Silverback?

I would like to better know which bottom panel to pull if I need to work on the drain valves on my 2014 33RL.

Thanks.

Rich Phillips

Open the seam at panels one and two then drop panels from the frame lip on the left side, you may also need to lower panel three.

Hi darkcloud,

Thanks. I presume that would be the first two from the front.

As (probably bad) luck would have it, I have a metal gas line that runs across and on top the seam between those two panels.

Yes from the front, I have the same camper 2014 33 RL. I changed the black tank valve this past Jan.

I also had to cut the 3 after the valve to get it out, I used a 3 rubber boot to put the pipe back together.

Hi,

My black valve operates relatively easily. But my two gray valves -- despite spraying them with silicone/Teflon lubricant on every use cycle in the last year-- are very stiff. I anticipate the need is coming to get in there...
