Winterizing our 2011,forest river sunseeker 3120

Good afternoon.
Reading the owners manual and trying to find drain valve for fresh water tank and the bypass valve for the water heater. Unfortunately, we purchased our rv up in Ottawa, On, Ca, 375 miles away and help long ways away.

Looking forward to your replies

Thanks in advance

Gary

Look where you hot water tank is... is if you can access the back of it.. under the bed, in a cabinet... where ever it is... NORMALLY the water shut off is in line with the rest of the water pipes going to the water heater.

Email you dealer and ask them to give you an idea where these items may be.

The drains SHOULD be marked on the outside of your RV... should say something like " drain" " low point"... look UNDER the RV and see if there are gray, red, or blue pipes sticking down... should have a screw off cap. Don;t forget to open ALL of the faucets and get a blow out plug so you can blow the water out of the water lines. Then run some pink RV antifreeze through the lines and in the sinks and toilet. Really not a hard job.... just time consuming. GOOD LUCK!

Do you close the taps after adding the antifreeze?

Don't forget to drain hw heater turn bypass first.
also remove water filter.
don't forget outside shower.
close all taps when done.
you can also buy a kit to install antifreeze .....
DO NOT PUT ANTIFREEZE IN FRESH WATER TO WINTERIZE!

yes you do close the taps..what model do you have. My 360 has the bypass underneath the coach under the water heater..there is a round disk you unscrew to switch the valves...

I have the same year and model. in the second storage compartment from the rear on the passenger side there is a pannel at the back of the compartment. it contains your water filter and to the right of it is a handle for your fresh water drain.
under your Sunseeker toward the rear are two hoses, one red and one blue. these are the drains for your water lines. open your faucets as you drain.
