I recently purchased a 2007 Keystone Hornet 28bhds. It was winterized, but now I need to empty out the tank to put in fresh water. Where's the drain?


Typically, when your unit is winterized, the tanks and hot water are emptied; at least they should have been. What you need to do is connect a hose like you would to use fresh water and open the valve. Then go to reach faucet in your unit and open them, one at a time until the pink fluid goes clear and then wait another 10-15 seconds before closing. Once all faucets, shower and toilet have been purged of anti freeze, Make Sure the bypass on the hot water heater is opened to let water fill the tank before you turn on the power, for electric, to prevent burning up the heating element. Once all is done, you should be able to do the valve to have water directed into your fresh water tank. For future reference, the drain hose will be at a low point, under the belly with a valve. If the lever is online with the drain hose/tube, the line is open. Make sure the lever is perpendicular (90 degrees) to the line to be closed so you can fill the fresh water tank.

Freshwater tank fills and overflows even though selector is pointed at 'city water' position.


Other than a leaking 4 way selector valve the probable cause would be a leaking check valve in the pump.

On the RV the city water and discharge from the fresh water pump are tied together. When on city water the discharge of the pump will have city water pressure on it. If the internal check valve on the pump is leaking, water will flow through the pump backwards and into your fresh water tank.

Typically this requires ether replacing the pump or installing a secondary check valve between the fresh water tank and the pump suction.

Is there a valve to open on the fresh water tank when using it?


Yes. Open the outside panel, usually located close to or beside the city water inlet. Should be a diagram showing "normal", "tank fill" and "winterize." Use "fill" to fill the tank. Water will run out the underneath drain when full. I recommend a water pressure limiter just in case the city water pressure is excessive. You can rupture a line or the tank if too high. Rare, but it does happen.

Flip the valves to "normal" to use the city water. If boondocking, the pump will pull from the fresh water tank directly. No need ot change anything.

Where is the drain for the water tank on a 2001 Dutchmen 26 ft. travel trailer?


I assume you mean the fresh water tank. These drains can be just about anywhere, but always at a low point.

If you can't contact the dealer or manufacturer for location, look underneath the RV, under the sink, behind removable panels inside, and close to the waterpump either underneath it or in the waterpump compartment itself.

There are usually 3, freshwater tank drain, cold water line and hot water line. Some turn and some pull up. Experiment which is which or try to trace them back to origin.

How do you drain the fresh water tank without having to pump it all out into the grey water holding tank?


Find where the fresh water tank fill is located. Directly below that under the coach you should see a single low point drain for the fresh water tank. It may have a cap on it but it may also have a valve at the location of the drain hose to the tank fitting.

Drain valve for fresh water tank


There should be three low point drains located under the trailer. Two will be close, side by side, to one another. This is the low point for the entire plumbing system, both cold and hot. There will be another single low point drain which will be for the fresh water tank. The low point drains may only have a cap on them or may have a valve installed.

When hook up city water to rv it shoots out vent


It is likely one of two things, either your RV has a waterline to your fresh water tank that allows you to fill that tank when you are hooked to City water, or the check valve on your water pump is bad and it is allowing city water to fill your fresh water tank. Make sure your freshwater tank is empty, have someone turn the city water on while you watch the freshwater tank... you should be able to see where it is filling from....if it is filling from the water line that run to the water pump, the check valve is bad, if it is filling from a city water fill line, locate the valve on that line and close it. If it is indeed the water pump check valve...you can either replace the pump, or add a cheap inline check valve, like a sharkbite check valve.. they run like 12 to 15 dollars.. install in seconds....you just cut the pex pipe then shove the ends into each end of the check valve.
