If the plugs are one on top of the other, with one being at a higher level than the other - then it (the higher one) is just a safety drain in case the lower drain stops up for some reason.

Some times mfc's will install two drains to give you a choice, but if that's the case (and I don't think it is) the drains would be at the same level.

No manual for Keystone Cougar 2013 330RBK ~ not sure how to winterize.


There should be plugs underneath the camper to drain the water tanks. Remove them and let the water drain. There should also be a plug on the water heater, remove and let water drain. There is also a bypass valve on the water heater to divert water away from the heater, turn this to bypass. After the water has drained replace the plugs except the water heater plug. The heater plug can stay out. Fill fresh water tank with RV antifreeze, usually about 3 gallons or maybe a little more for larger RVs. Run pump opening faucets one by one till water is forced out and the antifreeze flows including toilet. When antifreeze is flowing out the faucets close faucets and shut off pump. When pump is shut off open faucets, the antifreeze may get slushy in very cold conditions but wont freeze and a little may drip out of the faucets. The water heater may still have a small amount of water in it but shouldn't be a problem if you leave the plug out. Make sure the blackwater and greywater tanks are empty, you can dump a little antifreeze down the drains and toilet to make sure the sink traps are free from water and the blackwater tank has antifreeze in it. Other than that just shut the propane tanks off and youre done. Try to leave a couple of windows cracked slightly to promote airflow and reduce condensation inside the camper

If water heater is plugged in and outlet has power... then water should be hot.
If no water inside tank, and tank is plugged in, and outlet has power, then element is burned out.

Why would my engine block be spewing water out under neath next to the oil filter


Hello,

On an engine block there are 'Freeze plugs'. The reason for freeze plugs is to allow for expansion (E.G.--when water freezes it expands). If water does get cold enough or does not have enough antifreeze in the system the water will expand and 'pop' a freeze plug to prevent the engine block or heads from cracking. However--these plugs can fail (not cold related) causing a leak in the cooling system. Thus water circulates through the block and heads to provide cooling (water pump-radiator-heater core). Also--water pumps when they go bad have a hole that 'pops' and leaks to let you know the water pump needs to be replaced. Therefore--Location is key.

I hope this helps.

Water in all cylanders


Sounds familiar. If the engine oil is too full, oil will splash into the spark plug openings. Then, condensation will sit on the oil shorting the plugs. Be sure not to overfill. Also, the valve cover gasket has an inside seal. Once again, oil will partly fill the spark plug hole if the gasket is bad. There is a large hole in back of the valve cover leading right to the plugs. Be careful not to rinse the engine. Gaskets seal the plugs but water can sit on the plug openings.

Freez plugs


Yes. Most all water cooled engines used in automobiles willutilize freeze plugs in their respective design. The freeze plug is there to act as a weak point should the water located in the water jacket of the head freeze and expand. Without the freeze plug, the metal of the head would crack when the water freezes and expands.

Yamaha xl 1200 waverunner crankcase filled with water ! how do we save this motor?


plugs out and crank the water out , put your finger over plug holes as you do this and will help purge water from crank ! Plug caps away from plug holes !! have a battery jump pack ready as will take a while ! if plugs ok then clean with carb/brake cleaner once most water is out then put a sqwert of fuel in each cyl then plugs in hand tight and get cracking coz if left too long crank etc already rusting ! DONT STOP till you got it running as you will have to clean the plugs several times ! Try all three plugs at first then if struggling two plugs and one out with rag over hole and plug cap away safe from plug hole so not to spark fuel !!!! NO SMOKING !!! Fire extinguisher handy !!! once running ON ALL THREE CYL'S , not one or two as you can sieze the engine take to lake and give a good run and making sure all cyls working ! can do this while strapped to trailer in water as long water circulating !

Washer still has lots of water in it at the end of the spin cycle. Also, we notice bad oder each time the washer is used. Are these related? How do I fix this problem?


The most common problem is the water pump is malfunctioning and not allowing the water to drain all the way out, if the machine sits over a week the water turns sour and smells bad. so check that the pump is not plugged up and check that the pipe from the pump is not plugged up. if hose is not plugged up and the belt on the pump is tightened up it could still be a bad water pump so I suggest you replace it. Also with a water hose push water threw the drain pipe in the wall to see if the pipe is plugged, it should take full water hose pressure without a problem, if it backs up then you have a plugged drain pipe. remove the drain pipe form the hole in the wall and push hose onto the water hose put washer on spin and have other end off the hose bib, watch the water flow as it pumps water out of the spin cycle if the water does not come out fast than you have a bad pump or a bad water pump belt. since it won't drain all the way this will cause the water to smell sour.

Water is not spraying


Plugged holes in spray bar or plugged filter in bottom, preventing water from draining down to the pump area. If the pump can't get water, it won't pump water up into spray bars. If spray bar holes are plugged, water can't get out.
