What are they?

Newbie here, both to this forum and to our trailer. I do seem to have a fairly complete package of paperwork that came with our rig but I can't find anything to explain a group of connections. First we have a 2010 36GKE limited. My question(s) concerns the attached picture. We do have a built in hose reel for connecting to city water so I wouldn't think those 2 hose connections in the picture would be for that, but what do I know? Our rig surprises us with features on every trip! Any advice will be appreciated.

Yes, tank flush connections. Connect a hose, turn it on and see which tank fills up.

Thanks for input!! Currently the rig has an empty gray and the black is holding about 1/3 full. I was going to hook up to one connection, open up the gray and see if it flows. If not, well try the other connection. Getting ready to store for another Alaskan winter and will be doing it myself this time. The last 2 years I paid to have it prepped for winter, thus my lack of knowledge. We're headed for our last trip this season on the 7th of Sept. and I plan to flush both tanks on that last day before coming home. I will winterize the lines once home.

This is the label on ours. The bottom two have phone and I assume cable.

Also on ours, the bottom two hose connections, the left is black tank flush and the right is city water hook up. Hope this helps.

That is so helpful!!! It looks like my sat cable connections are on the bottom where yours are on top. Other wise they appear to be the same. And I will soon find out if my back flush connections are the same as yours. Thanks so much that image is just what I was hoping to see.

Phone & CATV are together. Next is Sat. Connection to living room and bedroom. Water connection are: left is fresh water and right is black water flush. There is no gray water flush unless ordered during the build of your unit. You can also fill fresh water tank by valve below the manifold inside the compartment door to left.

I have a hose reel under the bedroom slide that is what we use to connect to the city water systems. So I'm assuming the trailer has 2 ways to connect to city water? I am aware of the valve to fill the fresh water tank, it fills from the hose reel when it is connected.

Nice 5th, Gee!

Welcome to the EXCEL Forum.

We have a 2013 L36GKE and love the floor plan.

If you click on the 'User CP" button above left, find "Edit Signature", you can place info about your crew and fiver to help others know what you have so you don't have to repeat it in other post. You can look at other posters signature to get an idea what you want your signature to look like.
