We dare not present with you at your location, so we can only guess, but here are some thoughts.
1) You may have a bad battery. Have it checked.
2) You may have a current draw, like for some item that uses electricity all the time.
For example, an electric clock, a TV set, a burglar alarm, a smoke/carbon-monoxide alarm.
3) You may choose to install a manual "shut -off" switch in your system that will shut off all electricity when you are not using the RV.
God bless your efforts.

AC may be the 3rd belt. 1 belt may be water pump & power steering, the other belt may be water pump & alternator. Water pump usually has 2 belts for redundancy , that is if one belt breake , the other belt will still turn the water pump. All 3 belts must go on the bottom pulley (crankshaft)

Good luck on finding any piping information, even from the MFR for that. Your best bet is to remove the access panels where the fresh water inlet connects to the camper and distributes throughout the unit. Typically, the connection will be near the hot water heater then once inside, there will be a "T" connection where the water will split off to the Hot Water Heater. After that, you should see the water go back towards the wall to go through a bypass valve, which is the lever used to bypass the tank fill or direct the water into the tank fill. This is where is can get difficult to find. Many 5th wheels will have the fill line go into and behind panels that are not easily accessible or they get directed under the camper where you will have to remove belly skin panels to be able to trace.

At each one of these areas where there is a connection or corners, have someone outside turn water on/off to prevent excessive water spillage and keep any water from getting inside your unit to get soaked into wood and carpeting.

A lot of the newer coaches and travel trailer are like that. The best thing to do is use a mirror and a light to look back or up in there. You will see a lever or sometimes a lanyard connected to a lever. Just remember, they had to get it in so there is a way to get it out. Just take your time so you do not do any damage to the wall mount bracket or your TV.

Justa hint, if the only mirrors available are for the ladies to beautify daily, consider spending a couple bucks at a local automotive store and ask specifically for an Inspection Mirror. They are about 1.5"x3" and have an extendable handle. A small price to pay for years of practical use.

Most likely your ECM we'll be under the dash on the passenger side. All of the front gas engine motor homes I have seen, that is where it is located. If it is not there, next place to look is in the engine compartment in the passenger side but it would be up in a high location. The picture attached is an example of what to look for. Yours may have two or three plugs.
