I have an '05 MS 36TK3--will help you any way possible. But there aren't any unit specific videos I am aware of.
Are you having any problems as of yet?
'03 is first year they were made, you have a very early model.

It's all pretty basic stuff!...post up some pics and questions and I'm sure you'll get plenty of help!

You might also check out an RV dealer and go through several units and ask some questions there!

Thanks, especially to Wingnut for spending an hour on the phone with me the other day. I feel much better. As I come up with more questions I will let you know.

I'm a new owner of an experienced 2004 36 TK3, I can't find the valve to empty the fresh water tank, anf funny but true, the previous owner does'nt know either, in the owner's manual, they talk about about opening a valve in the service section, I do not see any such valve in the water service panel.
Thanks for your help

I also found out that all the electrical outlets on the face to door slide out including the fridge are on the same 15 amps breaker, is that normal?
Thanks

On my 07 it was behind the sliding door on the off door side. I had to reach down under the insulation near the back of the water heater. It was just above the bottom coroplast which forms the bottom of the trailer.
If you look under the trailer (below the water heater) you will see the pex drain exiting the underbelly. The valve is just above that exit in the underbelly.

Thanks Netjam
That's where I have looked, but I had not reached down the bottom, and there is so much stuff there that we can't see all the way, but I'll reach down
Best regards

On my unit is was a clear plastic handle and once opened it took hours to drain the almost 100 gallons of water. Open the faucets and let it dribble out. It is below the insulation and visible when you move that insulation.

Stripit and netjam are right on--but you have to have a long arm and be a contortionist. It will be much faster if you use the pump to empty it into a sink and drain it right out the gray water tank.
But, as said, check straight down behind the water heater--it is down there somewhere. At 5'7" I can barely reach it with my short arms, and usually scrape my arm on one of the other valves/lines. There are also 2 other valves that are used to drain the rest of the system (low point valves) one each in the cold water and the hot water lines--they are in the same general area. You need to look hard and carefully at all the water lines and get confidence in knowing which is which, where they are coming from and going to.
You'll figure it out if you don't get too frustrated easily...
Joe
