I bought my ACE 29.4 in early August. The dealer filled the fresh water tank and during the PDI told me where to fill it, where to connect the city/park water but not how to drain the tank. And of course I was so excited about picking up the MH I didn't think to ask. I don't use much fresh water - only on trips for the toilet and sinks. I hook up to park water.
OK, so after about 4-5 weeks I decided to drain the tank and refill it with about a half tank. Didn't like carrying around all that weight anyway! I couldn't find the drain from the tank to the outside. Then, in early November the weather man is talking about some cold weather coming and that it would be here for a week. I had an appt. scheduled to have the coach winterized (first time) so I drained the fresh water tank into the grey water tank and dumped that. Got as much out as I could, including the water heater.
When I took it in for the winterization I reported the AC side of the water heater not working. That's a warranty issue and the Camping World I took it to couldn't fix it. I had to take it back to the dealer. However, they kindly showed me where the fresh water drain was.......behind a panel in the bedroom, below the drawers which are below the closet. The drain valve is on the "INSIDE" of the coach and not easily accessible without removing the panel and pretty much climbing into the location it was placed. I consider that a design flaw. Why on earth would you put the drain valve on the inside -and behind a cabinet instead of routing it to make it easily accessible from the outside like most other fresh water valves.
I haven't had the warranty work or weatherization done yet - that's scheduled for 12/19. If anyone has any ideas on how to make the valve accessible from the outside I'd certainly appreciate it. THOR says it's not a warranty issue - that's the way it was made and offers no further explanation - but they sent my email to the people who design these things.
I can't believe I'm the only one who's had the fresh water drain valve issue. Maybe I got the only one that wasn't routed correctly?
Sorry for the rambling........needless to say I'm a bit PO'd.
