Water manifold system

I'm just sitting here and wondering what the benefits of having the manifold system for the water is. I realize that if I have to repair a particular water appliance or have a leak with it, I can shut off that line.

What else ?

Ken

In the winter you can only open what you need. That's all I've done.

Believe it or not.....that was the best use I thought of when asked "What does your new coach have?"

I've had other campers come see the manifold when I am hooking up or unhooking. They all say "Man, I wish mine was rigged like that". Once from a guy in a Newmar Mountaine Aire.....lol

Wow I love the manifold system. Had to repair my toilet only turned that valve off. A lot off high end rvs don't have anything like it. And I do show mine to the neighbors. Jim

If you did not have the manifold system and a leak developed in the water supply line within the RV, you would be wishing that you had the manifold.

The manifold makes repairing anything water related easier. Wouldn't be without one.

On a Buddies Berkshire The hot water hose in the kitchen broke the first day of a one week vacation. Nether of us had a toad. Just turned off that one line and enjoyed the week. Without the manifold the whole coach would have been without water and the trip ruined.

Is that not reason enough.

In both my house and past RVs, one of the first things I did was to install shutoff valves at every water source. Nothing worse than having to shut off and in many cases drain a large portion of the system before starting repairs. Leaks very seldom happen at convenient times ... the Berk manifold is a beautiful thing
