New member just checking in for the first time. Purchased a Gemini 23TB several weeks ago and spent the first week with it parked in the driveway going through the manual and checking systems. Everything worked so we took it to a local KOA to get 30 amp access for a night and everything still worked so I guess we are ok. That is, everything but the TVs. Just my wife and two small dogs. We have gone from tent, to pop-up, to trailer, and now this small class c. This will be our first experience with a generator so looking forward to learning how this item works. My inspection tec told me he uses it when driving rather than his cab AC because it burns less propane than diesel. Everything says not to run the propane while driving so I an trying to reconcile this particular information.

Congratulations on your new coach and welcome to the forum!!! Lots of arguments about using propane on the road! I personally have been doing it for over 30 years as have many others, your choice.

Hope you have lots of FUN in your new coach!!!

Using your fridge on propane while traveling will use next to no propane compared to running you generator. Been rving for 40 years & traveling with the propane on.

Low point drains

Question for Gemini owners -- have you been able to locate the low point water drains. I have located on the passenger side forward of the rear wheels red and blue lines protruding through the under carriage but there are no open/close valves, just the open hoses. I also noticed behind the drawer next to the furnace red and blue water lines both with closed valves (assuming the valves were installed correctly). I cannot get my hand behind the drawer and cannot get the drawer out to figure if these two things are related. Open to suggestions.

Congratulations on your purchase. Me & wife also purchased a Gemini in feb. We're very happy.Every new thing takes time to learn.If your talking abut valves concerning winterizing, and fresh water. It's behind fake side wall in back storage. Dump tanks ,and grey water on drivers side rear.
Welcome and happy camping.
