3 little knobs???

Ok I have searched and can't find reference to these.....On the Silverback convenience center there are 3 little black knobs in the upper left hand area... There are what appears to be hoses coming off the back side of them. Does anyone know what they are or what they do and how they work???

What kind of hoses? Hydraulic? water? Could be tank flushes/water hookups (the hookups do kinda look like knobs) or possibly control valves for hydraulic slides.

I have three knobs in my Cedar Creek as well.....in mine they control which slide outs you want to open. Picture would help

Steelpony ... those are the isolation valves for your slides just like we had on our Montana's. The only difference is these you have to turn in all the way ... on our SOB's they were 1/4 turn valves. All the way closed, that particular slide will not deploy ... back open ... slides work as normal.

We use the opposing or kitchen slide all the time while traveling. I pull in rest areas that give me room to open that slide for kitchen access and rear sofa access. We hardly ever eat out enroute. Comes in real handy!
Cool breeze day, escape window open, 20 minutes of peace makes the trip soooo enjoyable!!
