Cougar x-Lite 28rks docking station

This summer, we purchased used 2018 Keystone Cougar x-lite 28rks fifth wheel. The unit came with limited documentation for reference. As we are midwesterners, time to winterize. The unit has a docking station which accommodates city water, fresh water, cable tv and antenna hookups. This docking station also has a set of faucets and a quick-connect valve (all unlabeled). Does anyone know what the quick connect valve (appears to acccomodate an air compressor) and the faucets are for?

Sounds like it's an outside shower. Did you find a coiled up hose with a quick disconnect?

Contact Keystone and give them your VIN or build number and get them to either send you one or a link to a PDF.

This is an excerpt from another thread I posted earlier.....

I little different from Bob, but somewhere in a cabinet their is a "Build sheet" posted. Take a few pics and print it out. First, go down the sheet and make sure that you have the factory manual for each item from the item's manufacturer. If you don't have one they will be available online. Then assemble them in the manner that works best for you. Some punch holes and use three ring binders, and some use accordion files. Then take time to walk through the manuals. My thought process is start with the chassis manual and walk through everything with fuse box and breaker locations being a priority. Finding it in your driveway on a sunny afternoon beats a cold rainy Friday night on your way to camp. It's first because no matter how well everything works, you gotta get there first.

After that, go to the coach manual. Again, put your hands on everything and if you can't find it, come back and ask. As has been said, these manuals are somewhat generic as there may be upgraded items mentioned that you don't have and locations may be changed from one model to the next. Find your on board water filter, pump, transfer switch, house breakers, low point drains, water heater valves, TV amplifier switch, leveler switch and pump assembly, and anything else. Then go down the build list and do the same again. Make sure you find everything and flip switches and turn levers. This is also a good time to start your tool box as sometimes you may have a panel or three to remove and many of them have the square head screws.

While you are doing this, I suggest that you get a couple of rolls of painters tape and sharpies. Make notes and labels. If you see something that isn't right, you don't understand, or needs repair, put up tape where it is easily seen and start a "punch list". Some things may effect livability and are more of a priority and many will be cosmetic.

Bear in mind also that this was a discussion about a new Class A, so you can skip the chassis manual, but add one for the axles and brake system.

It might be an outside shower, but there is an outside shower on the opposite side of the unit, located by the outside kitchen. We're new to RVing...are there usually two outside showers on fifth wheels?

Thanks for the tips! We have a Keystone manual but, you are correct, it is very generic. I like the painter tape/marker tip! Great idea!

That is an outdoor shower... Our Cougar X-Lite has the same exact thing.....There should be a quick disconnect hose to use there... Monkey
