New to the group. 2015 Viking 17FQ

Just curious if there is are separate forum groups for special travel trailers such as mine being a 2015 Viking 17FQ. I didn't see any, but maybe I missed something.

I had a few questions for those with a 2015 17FQ:

1. I was wondering where the hot water heater bypass valve is, and what are the other 2 or 3 valves near the water pump? My water pump is under the sink at the floor behind and access panel and I see 3 valves in that compartment. No manual was given to me when I purchased this trailer last week from a private party.

2. I need a new Dometic freezer door. I have searched high and low on the internet but can't find one. I thought I might have seen one for $125 and that's fine, but I am a bit shocked that for only being 5 years old, one can't find many freezer doors online.

3. This is my 5th trailer and every other trailer I have owned I have made sure every single hole is secured, so no mice get in. So far I have had good luck in all 5 previous trailers, but just curious if those who own a 17FQ have found certain areas where the mice do get in. Being in Michigan and not being about to use the trailer for about 5 months, we all know mice find a warm place (or warmer place) to hide but not n my camper--haha. As always I will be crawling around under the camper sealing every single hole plus the power cord hole with the wide open cut out for the cord.

4. Is there anywhere online one can order or print off a manual that comes with the camper when new? I found a site to print off appliance manuals but not to go over things like the valves I am asking about or the converter etc.

Thanks everybody in advance!

Viking is a small line of Coachmen RV. I can move your thread to the Coachmen section of the Forum.
As far as a manual, generally there no such thing as a model-specific nor brand-specific owners manual. Just a generic owners manual with no model-specific information. You can download one from Coachmen's website and it be probably be the same as the 2015.
