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...

Thanks guys and to wingnut60, but what about 120 volts question?

Sorry, got mixed up in the 2 different posters...

Yes, very normal to have a lot of outlets on one breaker, and few on the other. Not much you can do unless you have an electrician out who understands what you need done.
Several on the forum have made some mods to the electricity distribution balance, but not sure where I read about it.
It is a common industry failing and I believe based on economics--much cheaper to run one lead to many outlets than have two leads running next to each other. Very few mfgs/installers care about balancing loads on the breakers.
It is possible to trace which outlets/appliances are on each breaker, then work on the leads into/out of the breaker box to help reduce the number of items on each breaker--but...have an electrician do it.

Thanks Joe,

Too bad for us hey, but I'm surprised that manufacturers are not more concerned.......... we'll have to live with it

This problem pretty much exists throughout the price ranges--getting a high-end unit does not necessarily mean you can easily run everything in the trailer at the same time. However, I think some units are now coming out with more amp-drawing appliances/items than a 50-amp outlet can handle, so not surprising some complaints are voiced.
I don't know how the 3 AC big trailers are wired--don't think all 3 can run at same time?

On the three AC's, I think they are wired to where there are least two of them that alternate on and off, so three aren't running at the same time.

Could this be the valve to empty the fresh water tank, and if not what is this for?
Thanks

For years, we used one we got at a furniture store--but that has been over 40 years ago, so don't remember what it was/looked like.
Might look at the kids' bed section at a large furniture store...
