Sewer valves, 2000 Alpha Gold 5th Wheel
I just acquired this unit in a distressed sale without any instructions, etc.
I am currently living in it in cold weather near Topeka, KS (11 degree nights) I have the main sewer outlet open and connected to the park, site, receptacle. However, it appears there are three sewer tanks that do not automatically drain into the main. In one of the hatches, there appears to be one manual and two electric sewer valves and three electric sewer switches.
What is the sequence for emptying the various tanks? Do you turn on a switch and open a valve or vice versa? Also, of the two electric looking valves, which one controls what? And, are they automatic when you flip a switch or what? On the manual valve in this hatch. I pulled it and I think it was the grey water tank that began to empty down the main.
I tried the electric switches one at a time for about 10 seconds. Only on one of them did I hear any elctro/mechanical noise. Does that mean that some sewer valve is not working? If an electric valve is not working, I suppose one could open it manually, Huh?
On my control panel inside, I notice my Galley Tank is filling up.
Help on how all this works and which valve is for what would be sincerely appreciated.
