Location of holding tanks

While the enclosed undercarriage on our 2012 MVP Destiny 355re 5th is great for insulation purposes, it stops me from knowing what's under there

We have 4 holding tanks and only one outlet valve on our fancy little 5th but was wondering what's the best way to figure out WHERE each of the holding tanks are for balancing of the weight if I need to tow with a full tank or two?

1-Seems like a schematic from the mfg would be best,
but won't get a response from them, maybe they want the patents protected just in case they start producing again?

2-Next the dealer SHOULD know where they are, correct ?

3-maybe since I'm doing this to get the balanced tongue weight...
guess using the $1.00 reweighs at the cat scale close by would help...
empty all tanks and weigh it,
then reweigh after each of the following:
fill up the fresh water,
move the water to the grey tank,
dump and fill up the galley tank,
dump and fill up the black tank

Number 3 won't tell me directly, but will tell me how each tanks capacity affects the pin weight which is what I'm trying to get at so I will know how to handle them in the future...

will try the mfg and dealer one more time... but wanted to see if you smart people knew

If you really are sad and think nobody cares, just try missing a few payments ! '11 Monaco Diplomat 43DFT RR10R pushed by a Demco Excali-Bar II hitch which is pushed by a '14 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport.
