Fresh Water Drain

The fresh water drain for my 2007 42' Magna Van Gogh is operated as part of the intellitec system, and the switch to open the drain is located on the switch panel in the bathroom. Depressing the button no longer opens the drain. I am on the road in Coeur D Alene, and do not have my schematics (need to store them in the coach). I have looked for the fuse location with no success. (rear closet, rear overhead, magazine rack) Any assistance would be appreciated.

Thanks, John.

Could it be the solenoid valve has failed? I had to replace one recently but my coach is very different from yours.

Try a jumper wire across your switch terminals. Switch may just be bad. Then check ALL fuses. Those are your quick checks.

My freshwater board is fused in the forward driver side compartment at wire 164.

Of course, I do not have the intellitect system in my old rig.

BTW I have found it useful to scan my manual into the computer and just leave the originals onboard.

Fresh water drain

I also have the Intellitec system on my '08 45' Intrigue . There are two ways on my coach to drain the fresh water tank. I can either push the switch to open the valve or there is a manual ball valve behind the panel in the bay area . My fuse is located in the forward compartment under the driver . Yours may be the same .

Low Point Drains
Your coach is equipped with a set of three electronically-activated low-point drain
valves lo cat ed in the plumbing bay. These valves drain the fresh-water stor age tank
and do mes tic plumb ing sys tem in preparation for maintenance, repair, or stor age. The
valves are two-way, normally closed and are internal-pilot operated. They have a pilot
and bleed orifi ce and use line pressure to assist in their operation.
The low-point drains are operated with a switch located near the SilverLeaf housemonitoring
system panel, between the bathroom and bedroom. Open all faucets and
shower valves, then press this switch for 4 seconds to open the normally-closed
valves, allowing gravity to drain the system. Simultaneously, activating the water
pump switch hastens system drainage.
Occasionally, it is possible for debris to lodge near the sealing surface of the
valve’s di a phragm. A slow leak at the drain end may indicate that this has
To eliminate a leak, the solenoid valve must be disassembled and cleaned.
To disassemble and clean the solenoid valve:
1 Remove the copper-colored keeper at the top of the electric coil.
2 Remove the coil and spring washer, which exposes the four bolts that secure
the body of the valve.
3 Use a 7/16” socket, box, or open-end wrench to remove the four bolts.
4 Pull the top of the valve body off the valve assembly, being careful not to
lose the spring at the top of the coil actuator.
5 Peel off the black diaphragm, being careful not to lose the O-ring seal.
6 Clean the underside of the black diaphragm, inspecting for lodged
particles. Also, inspect the brass sealing surface for dirt.
7 Reassemble in reverse sequence.
Opening the low-point drains does NOT drain the Aqua-Hot internal
reservoir or the icemaker in the refrigerator. For information on
draining and preparing the water heater and refrigerator for storage,
refer to the water heater and refrigerator owner’s manual in you

My drain switch ( 98 Concept ) works fine ,( lights up ) but the wiring near the solenoids is fried. My tech told me to forget about it ! In order to get city Water I now have to open/close ball valve on manafold system. ( pass side ) He told me the cost to replace wiring is not worth it, let alone the control valves should one ( three ) be bad. In this case , manual is better...........
