Water supply lines

Just bought a 2004 27' Forest River Lexington. Brand new to RVing...never slept in one until 3 nights ago! Previous owner used it as a hospitality vehicle, so he ordered it w/o sinks, toilet, or shower. The tanks, drain lines and water supply lines were left in, just the basins, faucets, toilet, and shower fixture were left out. I just installed the first sink. Have not hooked up water yet; however, do each water fixture have separate supply shut off valves, so I do not blast water out of all the other fixtures I have not installed yet? If I do not see shut off valves at the end of all the water supply lines, should I add them until I later add the faucets and such?

Are there gray & black holding tanks under the unit? They dont place seperate shutoff valves on the water supply lines in RVs at every fixture. Youroo!!

If it was me; I certainly would. Being able to shut off water to the toilet would be a real plus. PEX valves are not terribly expensive ($$).

A toilet leaker in the home is a big water bill and a hassle to repair; in the RV it is a disaster. Nice to be able to shut it off quickly without disconnecting everything when you go away for a long time.

I plan on installing one my first repair of the toilet.
