If you know where the pump is located it will be behind a false panel or door. There should be a valve at the pump this will be the valve and hose to add antifreeze to the unit. This should have been shown to you during your PDI walk through.

My process for starting up is open pressure relief valve on water heater until water flows out and then shut. Then go to each facet and run hot and cold sides until each run smooth. This clears lines of air and everything runs smooth. This assumes pump is in the normal operating position not antifreeze fill position. Good Luck!

There should be 2 valves in the front drivers side compartment next to your water connections. One is a small white valve and the other is the red hot water bypass valve. Make sure the white valve is on to pull water from the fresh water tank. Click image for larger version

Good morning all. Thank you for the comments pictures and help. First thing yesterday morning, I dug into this. Yes, I got it figured out. Here is what I learned from my setup.

Found the pump and the vacuum side does not have a valve. Vacuum side has a line to pull in antifreeze and a line to draw from the tank all in a "T" connection. The cap plug needs to be in the line that you suck up antifreeze from. I have a direct fill line to fill fresh tank, no valve there either. There is however the white valve that need to be open to draw water from the tank (not labeled).

It was all much clearer once I could see the pump and lines. This is my first 5er and much different than my previous TT.

Thanks for the help! Happy camping!

I did not know what the white valve was for until I took the panel off to get to the pump. Thank you for the picture. I also learned I needed to cap off the antifreeze suction line.
