I have a new to Me 2001 Dutch Star #3368 gas job which I'm slowly getting used to so I have a few questions, hopeing some one out there can help on this one. The book from Newmar is very generic to all there coaches which is like a guessing game in print. Well it states that I should be able to fill freshwater tank fom hose hook up by flipping one of the valves buried in the rear closet street side under the floor area inside carpeted side hatch. There is three valves I belive one is for draining tanks which seems to exit under coach and one seems to go to curb side rear drain and from there I'm lost and with out intruction it is not possible for me to figure out how to fill other then from outside tank fill.If you no the process waiting to here from you Photo would be helpfull.
I think I could get it if there was some room to follow the hoes back to there source but just can't seem to get it.TALK TO ME!!!!!!!

Not sure I can help but will try on my three Newmars 98-03 the water closet was located on drivers side just behind rear tires. In the closet there were two low point drains to drain for winter service also a valve to fill fresh water tank by turning to the left. After filling the tank you have to turn valve stright up or water pump can not pump water to toilets or faucets.
Each fresh water tank had a drain in compartment on each side of coach. Your fresh water tanks are split between each side of coach connected by a 1 1/4" pipe.
Your sewer drains are located next to water bay with shower. You may have a winter option coach and there will be a fan switch on the water hose connection panel that you would put on in winter to keep all your holding tanks warm during your winter travels. Just keep all water hose and sewer drain closed to keep heat in compartments. The fan will cycle with your furnace as it cycles on and off.
Your hot water heater will drain when you remove plug in heater. You should have a plate with diagram showing the positions of by-pass valves when you winterize near heater.
If you need anything else let me know.

007,
Thank you for the advise on water fill for fresh water tanks.I think I will have to do fresh water hose hook up and just try the valves thru trial and era,it is just such a tight spot but I'm sure I will get it right soon.

Thanx Mikeeg
