When you clean out the bottom of tank use a water wand to flush it out. You will find in Wal-Mart.

WOW, thanks for the owner's guide. That's going to help a lot. Now I can have a better idea of where things are at.

I went through it quickly and even though it doesn't have a layout diagram of the water system valves, by reading what the valves do I should be able to figure out what every valve is for and label them.

It has the most important things and now I can start looking for the other manuals like for the microwave. I knew it said microwave/convection so I've been pushing buttons and trying to figure out how to set the convection oven part. Having one at home helps but of course the one at home isn't 15 year old technology like this one, lol.

My Dad passed away this last year and left it to me. We only took 2 trips in it. He drove it alone from Texas to Arizona to visit my sister and a few weeks later I flew over and drove back to Texas with him. After that he had it connected to my house and stayed in it when he came to visit.

The more I get to know how it all works the more I love my Dad for giving me this fun headache

I made one of those out of PVC to clean out the toilet system but haven't used it yet. I guess I'll use it for the water heater tank first!

Not knowing your model coach here is a 1997 3758 model coach with the build info including electric, plumbing and cabinets plus other items, now if link works here it is.

It did slow loading, most Newmar coach layouts are almost the same as far as electric & plumbing.

It would be easier for me if you post any new questions down it the forum because its easier to get links I need for your answers, thanks.

Yes, I tried to just say hi and a little more about me and this turned into a help session, lol. That's what happens when you have good members in the forum so kudos.

I'll go see that link then move myself over to the forums.

Thanks to all again.

Some of the other system manuals (furnace, fridge, etc) can be found at the link below. Just find the tag with Make and Model number and you should be in business.

Welcome!


Google the Oxygenics shower head. It works great in conserving water.

Thanks. I did the research and couldn't find one bad review so I already paid for one at the local RV store and it should be there by the time I get back to town after a few days off at my regular home in East Texas.
