Water Shut Off For Generator Compartment

We have a 2020 New Aire - can anyone tell me where the shutoff is for the Generator Compartment. We have looked high and low and just can't find it.
Thanks in advance.

Mine is on the D/S pass-thru rail tied up with a bunch of other stuff that you have to move aside to see it.

Since I left out an important word - water, I want to confirm that it is the water shutoff that goes to the generator compartment.

I found mine the other day in one of the storage compartments. Look at any and all of the pex pipes headed towards the generator from the oasis. Itís a small black valve.

On my DSPD, it runs along the frame rail on the drivers side. From the wet bay up to the generator compartment. Look in each bay on that side and you should find some little plastic 1/4 turn valves on some pex lines.

On the 2018 3343 the hot water to the generator shutoff valve is located in the Oasis compartment in the ceiling.

Water Shut Off For Generator Compartment

You may have two shut 1/4 turn valves off near the ceiling if you refrigerator is in the drivers side slide. There have also been posts that have one of the shut offs in the Oasis bay.

In my 2019 New Aire the shutoff is in the compartment with the electrical cable reel. Way up at the top near the vacuum cleaner. You probably can't see it but you can stick your hand up there and find it. You'll feel the pipe (tubing) and the lever of the valve. I found it by accident the first time. It's the same kind of valve as the fresh water drain valve with the lever handle.

I have a New Aire and just found mine in the oasis bay. Just above the oasis unit.
I turned mine off for the cold climate at Nappanee it going to be cold mid Dec.

We Finally Found the Shut Off

We finally found the shut off! Location? - behind the central vac! We've been tossing the idea around for a couple days; so, this morning we removed all the screws for the central vac and lowered box and there was the shut off. It just might be a permanent "off" setting

Thanks for your input.

Glad to hear you found it. Now that you know where it is you can probably feel around back there without removing the vacuum cleaner and turn it on and off easily. The hot water does make it easier to remove bugs at the campground but if you decide to leave it shut off you can get that at the kitchen sink in a bucket too.

Don't forget to open the drain by the generator too so the water drains out of the line. It does get MIGHTY cold and windy in Nappanee for sure!

Our solution to replacing the central vac box was to reinstall in about 2 inches lower than what it had been sitting at - we can actually see the water line now and it makes it easier to reach in and open and shut the valve.

That's a good idea. I think I'll look at mine and see if that would let me see my water valve too.
