Huck, since you have winterized your Parkliner already perhaps you can answer my question. The video said there are 3 valves connected to the hot water tank, I can only find 2. I have felt all around under the hot water heater and do not feel another. Do you have 3?

There's 1 for the hot water tank, 1 on the cold water line, and 1 on the hot water line. I forget which is on top, but for the hot and cold water line valves, one is under the other one and a little harder to reach. Use a flashlight and you can easily see both of them.

Well Huck, I looked and my husband looked and there is definitely one valve on the hot water line and none on the cold water line. I am hoping that since I have an outside faucet that I'm not supposed to have one. I will have to check. Finished winterizing but am still getting in one more trip this weekend. I guess I better pack lots of water. Thanks for your help Huck, I appreciate it.

Maybe the outside faucet is the third valve Pat? I have no idea as the only valves I have are one I installed to isolate the hot water heater, and another I installed to drain the potable water tank (after my water pump gave up the ghost).

How do those puppies of yours like their new "dog house?"

Best of luck to you!

Here is a pic of my shut off valves as well as the exit port for my outside faucet (follow the tube on the right). Frank is correct, as you can see the cold water valve is redundant.

Thanks Sid, I definitely don't have that cold water shut off, thanks for posting the pic. Sounds like I don't need it. Frank, the dogs seem to be enjoying the new travel arrangements. The biggest thing for them to learn is that they can't leave the trailer until I am outside and release them. They are doing pretty well with it. I took her this weekend for a trial and unhooked her AND got her hooked up again by myself. Then I got home and backed her in between a tree and my other van. I am feeling pretty proud of myself…..Of course by next spring I will probably have to relearn everything all over again.

Those dogs better be happy Pat! What a dog house!

Once you get backing in, hooking up and unhooking a few times, it will come natural. It's like riding a bike! Well, sorta.

Best of luck to you!

Updating my questions about winterizing the hot lines in 2013 Scamp 16'. Having read the reference earlier in this thread, I was about to install a bypass into the hot lines on the output side of hot water tank in order to pump antifreeze into them. I called Scamp. These are half inch pressurized pex-fitted lines. I was advised that if I had drained the hot water tank with the shower and faucets open, I needn't worry about the hot lines. Enough water has been evacuated so that the little water remaining would not be a problem. 😉

...on to removing battery, putting on the cover when it's dry....
