THOR #18875
Omni XG32 water pump

Anyone know how to access the house water pump in the XG32 model? It seems like itís behind the water tank but seems completely inaccessible. Thinking about cutting an access panel in the bed slider...

I have a Magnitude SV34 so not sure if this will be exactly the same for the XG32.....

To access my water pump I need to take the mattress off the bed and then remove the screws that hold the mattress support wood in place. Then once the mattress support is removed, I have access to the water pump and electronics bay.

Thanks, I think

That’s exactly like i would think it works, but the bed liner/slide wood portion seems to be inset into both side panels... I’ve removed the screws but the wood seems essentially interlocked, for loss of a better term. This really does seem like it should be such a no brainer!

Hmmm.... I have a Tilt-a-View Bed and the mattress support moves so that is why I am able to remove mine.

Are there any drawers under the bed that would give you access when they are removed?

Might be worth a call to Thor Customer Service to see if they have any ideas about access. I would think it should be fairly accessible.... but you never know.

When I had my 2018 Outlaw 29H, you had to remove the furnace to get to the water pump.

I took some bad advice and moved to a sub-zero region without winterizing, turns out to be a VERY costly mistake.

Yikes!

Even though the winterization port might be hard to get to there are other things you can do in a pinch.

1. Open the Low Point Drain (both hot and cold....on my SV34 the Low Point Dran is the outdoor shower).

2) Open every faucet in the coach to let the water drain from the lines..... being sure to alternate between hot and cold with the inside faucets so both lines drain.

3) Get this blowout plug and install it to your city water port and then blow out the lines with a compressor set at about 40 - 50 psi.

4) Drain your fresh water tank as well as black and gray tanks.


Even if you can't add RV antifreeze this can prevent damage. Bursting is caused when water lines are full and pressurized such that once the water starts to freeze and expand, it has nowhere to go so the weakest areas will split.

Good luck!

If you have a whole house filter, remove the filter element before blowing out the lines with compressed air. I have seen cheap and good but old filter elements shred when using air pressures of 40 - 50 PSI in a dry canister.

Also, keep the compressor hooked up and run the residential fridge through a couple of ice maker cycles to clear out any water.

The dry winterization method does work and I use it on average 3 times a year before I actually use anti-freeze.
