New to the forum

I am new here to this forum and my name is Larry from Alvin Texas. I have a couple of questions for anyone that wants to answer.

Question one is I have a 1999 National Sea Breeze class A motor home and need some information on how and where the valve is to drain the fresh water tank.

Question two is on the stabilizer jacks. What is the procedure on leveling the motor home? On the panel there is four buttons that read (front, back, left and right). If I push the front button and hold it both front jacks come down but do not level the front of the motor home. It is the same way when I do the back button. Is there a way to make these jacks come down one at a time so the leveling can be done and how do I control from front to back?

Thanks in advance for the responses,

The tank drain is usually located very near the tank it's self, probably between the tank and the suction side of the water pump. You may also get a hint on it's location by looking under the RV for the discharge hose and follow it up.

On the leveling jacks, it might help to know which brand jacks you have, but it sounds like they are hydraulic and operating by pairs is normal. Typically when you lower one pair the two share oil source so as soon as one touches it will stop until the other also touches. You should feel that and at that point stop and shift to the pair at the other end/side. Next hold the switch for the other pair and hold it until you feel both of those jacks touch. Once that is done you normally level on the side or end where it is most off level. Push the side to level right to left and then the end to level front to back, or the other way. It is done in pairs to prevent twisting the RV frame by moving one corner alone. It is also important to never lift both front wheels as you risk frame twisting and never lift either rear wheel clear of the ground or you will have no parking brake at all. Use blocks under the lowest wheels if you must to prevent the wheel clearing the ground completely.
