You could even have shut off valves inside the unit to protect them from freezing. That's the way our rigs have been.

TV is rated to pull 23,000 lb GCWR and when weighed at the certified Cat scales I was at 16000 total for truck and trailer. Sound about right?

I have a 2007 f350 truck and I have similar numbers as you....I think the GCWR is a tad higher. I am 16,980 on cat scale.... I also had the same dilemma with the water drains.. The previous owner forgot to tell me about the plugs that were removed in the rear... ( I bought it in middle of winter) when I hooked city water up I had water running out the back. Luckily I remembered seeing three little grey plastic threaded plugs in the basement compartment....screwed right in...no more leak. the extra one I found went to the fresh water drain.
Have fun with the new rig!
