Can You Tell Me What These Do?

These valves are located in the Water/Sewer center of my 2013 Hurricane 34F. Obviously they are hot and cold valves but can someone tell me what they are for or what they control.


Thanks for your help

They are either the bypass valves for winterizing or the low point drain valves. If the valves are near your water heater they are probably for bypass. If the valves are in one of your outside compartments then they are probably the low point drains for draining your water system.

Could they be your low point drains for winterizing?

Thanks for your help. I have a drain under my bed but it only drains the fresh water tank. I bet these are to drain the rest of the water system. Thanks again for your help.

yep, low point water drains for when you are 'winterizing' or want to remove as much residual water from your lines.... you can also remove the water heater drain plug to allow it's water to drain out, as well.

also, opening your outside shower or any interior faucet will allow these to drain more fully and quickly

Vaseline is for the gaskets on the sewer pipe. Keeps the gaskets from leaking by making a better seal.
