If that doesn't work out.... tee in the lines and add quick disconnect fittings somewhere.. to attach your hoses... don't forget to put some valves on it as well as the disconnects.

The flip up table frame of our 5th wheel may have been ok when new but it certainly didn't stand the test of time. So I decided to remove it and install pedestal bases and legs.
The final outcome is certainly an improvement and far more stable.
Here are some pics of the old table base, the new pedestal bases and posts and the final outcome.

I assumed the low point drains wouldn't be "pressurized" when using the fresh water tank and pump, am I wrong assuming that?

Yes you are wrong. Same pressure there as other parts of the system.

Here's a generic plumbing diagram that will cover a majority of rigs. Low point drains are on the far right on page 1.

Well dag nab it, I changed the outdoor shower faucet to a better one with a coil hose. I would have been better off tapping into the low point drains so our wash tub would be on the other side of the camper. Thank for the info!!

Old Coot would have issues with that drawing. (I do too) Water Heater should not be called HOT Water Heater. Why would you heat hot water?

Because "hot" is relative.

At what temperature does it stop being "hot" and become "warm"? My bet is, the water that the water heater thinks is cool enough to heat is hot to me.

Just another way to think of it.

Received and installed my Oxygenics shower head. Got to get some silicone to mount the holder much higher than the stock one for my height.
Used some sharpies to mark directions of various control knobs to make them easier to use. Vent fan winder knob, AC control, hot and cold in the shower.
Made the beds for the next trip, what a PITA that is.
Unloaded various items, tools, etc. from the TV and loaded axe, machete, Stanley FUBAR tool and a couple small camping items into the TT.
Carefully reviewing CAT scale weighings, plan on carrying minimal in the TV due to overloading the TV rear axle when the WDH is disconnected. Removeable WDH components weigh 77# by themselves. Discussed in its own thread.
I cannot mount the WDH load bars until I am out my driveway when departing. The sewer line is too low and I drag the metal V guards in the back ;(

Because, the normal term is called a hot water heater, when a person replaced one in you home , do you call it a cold water heater? Common on you people have to much time on your hands, and really who cares what old coot calls it.

For grins I pulled up home depot and lower and the only time they use the term hot water in the water heater area is when they say hot water tank storage. the units themselves are referred to as "Water Heaters"
