Imichael,

Yes, I have the booklet but the chlorination procedure is a generic write-up with no drawing or references to how to access the drain valve.

This morning (Mon.) I talked to Bobby at PC who confirmed my speculation about removing the mattress and prying up the cut-out at the back.  Removing screws was not necessary.  This gives access to the demand pump, a T-valve for winterization, and the drain valve. We have now have a clean tank. Presumably, there will an illustrated addition to the handbook that is specific for the 2910.

I also talked with Ed the electrician about the unusual cyclic high-current draw on the engine battery that I reported earlier.  My Battery Minder can only barely keep up to the demand even though I have rejuvenated the battery with desulfation and equalization.

Ed says there are only four things using the engine battery: outside mirrors, coach step, back-up camera and compass... not the slide-outs. When the step is out, the step controller pulls around 0.8 amps.  I can see this difference in the cyclic thing-a-majig because it causes a higher draw.  That leaves something in the Ford turning on and off.  Ed gave some ideas of how to track this down.  We shall see.

Thanks all,

None of the suggestions apply although they have caused me to become more familiar wirh the innards of the coach.  No drawers under the sink either even though I am famiar with how to remove them.

Earlier today we arrived at our campsite for our first trip.  We are using city water until we figure out the drain delemma in sanitizing the fresh water tank.

Kevin,

Thanks, but the question is how to drain the tank.  I could not see the tank or any tubing leading from the gravity fill that would disclose the tanks' location, drain or drain valve.   

After a lot of time under the coach finding nothing, the only thing left was that the tank is under the bed (adding 300 plus pounds on the slide!). I extended the slide to look underneath.  There, at last, was a tube that likely was a drain.  Digging under the mattress I found a panel secured with four screws (torx?).  Can someone who knows the 2910 tell me what to do next?

Please excuse a dumb question but how do I drain the tank after the chlorine treatment?

We just got a new 2910 and I have these questions:

Which battery runs the slides; the steps; the detectors (smoke, propane, CO), levelers; frig?

Into which tank does the: kitchen sink, toilet sink, shower empty?

Is there a 12v outlet from the coach batteries?

What current draw when steps are out?
I observe an erratic, cyclic, high current draw from the engine battery when everything is off and the steps are out. Any suggestions about the source?

Where is:
The transfer solenoid for boost and charging house batteries when engine is running?
The house battery cut-off solenoid?
Slide-out relay(s) and breaker(s)?

Thanks everyone for patience while I figure out stuff.

We use a forwarding service from Family Motorcoach Association and it works well.  The service is part of membership benefits with FMCA.  We travel 3 months out of the year.  Our mail is forwarded to the FMCA office and (when we request) it is delivered to wherever we are via general delivery to a post office.
