Another dumb question

Sorry to keep bothering you all, we just picked up this coach and found the water to the shower and washing machine are turned off. Went through the manuals and there is no indication where the shutoffs might be. I think it was winterized and these drained and shut off but don't know where to go look to turn back on.

2002 Allure galley slide, shower is on the passenger side.

Thanks.

No dumb questions except the one that doesn't get asked. My shut off for washer is above washer cabinet through an inspection plate. Shower is at bottom of tub pan.

Our water shut off valves are just behind the washer/dryer and hard to reach.

I do not know if those valves control the shower. Never winterized in the past 17 years.

Our w/d water valves are behind the w/d, a little towards the neighboring cabinet at right. The valves are for w/d only, not for shower.

Hard to reach is putting it mildly. Would have to remove the W/D entirely to get at them, there's only about 1.5 inches on either side and top.

I thought maybe there would be an access port either under it or through the wooden shelf.

This is an Allure with kitchen slide, Splendide is to the right of the shower, shower is on passenger side directly across from the rest of the bathroom.

Can someone coach me on how to pull that Splendide out without breaking something?

Are you POSITIVE that there isn't a shutoff in the basement underneath? How about access panel on the exterior? Look at the adjoining space on either side, too

Service guys that winterize generally follow the KISS rule, so go for the easy fixes first.

When I bought our coach, the w/d was in place but no water. The po told me that they had never had used it. Upon pulling the w/d I discovered the water hose, discharge hose and power cord were not connected...

On our coach, the w/d was affixed by two anchor screws, left and right. Yours may be different, but once you remove the bottom trim, you will see them.

On edit:
You said no water to both w/d and shower... Hmmm... that might not be on the w/d valve... Wait for other owners who have the same coach...

Our coach should be very similar to yours. Only about an inch either side of the Splendide and hardly more on top Plus there's a lip at the bottom of the cabinet door that is higher than the clearance on top.

Yikes! Almost looks like they built the cabinet around it.

My Washer/Dryer is in the same area as yours, next to the shower. Above the Washer/Dryer is a cabinet. All the way in the back is an access door. Hot and cold shut offs are below opening. I canít remember if they control both shower and W/D.

YES! Found a set of valves under the rug. HOWEVER they only are hooked up to the W/D. Those lines have no water in them. There has to be another set of shutoffs somewhere.

How about under that side cover that gives access to the back/side of the hot water heater?

When was the last time the washer hoses were replaced? Never or unknown? Then now would be good. I place a dining chair in front of the w/d bay, and slide the w/d on to it. Replace those hoses with the best money can buy, and make them plenty long. I can access the hoses and faucets from the cabinet above the w/d bay, so I loop a piece of clothes line around the hoses to tug them into the w/d bay thru the access cabinet above as I slide the w/d back into its bay, then untie the loop and remove the clothes line. However, look at the floor of this bay. I had to reinforce mine with 3/4 osb as the w/d was installed on 1/8 ply by window-licking morons.

Look for nut-driver marks around fasteners for an under-belly panel that might be under the shower or wet-bay. Valves and water lines are insulated, but might be under the coach instead of inside a cabinet.

Makes sense from a practical standpoint in case one were to burst/leak.

I don't think there are any shut off valves for the shower. w/d yes but not shower. Look at the back of the water heater. the last owner might have installed a set of bypass valves for wintrizeation
