Customer Question
Can't locate the water...

Can't locate the water value for the 27R 4 winds thor. The potable water is just running out of the dumb tube

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your RV?

2020 thor 27 R

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your RV yourself? What have you tried so far?

We took it to the dealer to have a leak fixed. Came home and went to fill the water tank but it just runs out. Called dealership but he was not sure where the Valve is to close the drain

Mechanic's Assistant: How old are the hoses? And what driving conditions do you most often encounter?

It is almost new. Only camped in it 4 times. The water works fine if directly attached to city water. It is the holding tank that is not holding water. We took it in to winterize last fall. Figure they opened a valve that a we can't find to close

Can you send me a picture of the underside of the camper where the water is pouring out at?

That is great news. For future reference, there should be 2 low point drains for hot/cold plumbing and then a fresh tank drains one or more if you have dual tanks. Normally they are near the drain hoses hanging down under the camper.

Thank you for seeking us for help, I hope I provided what was needed. Press reply if you need to follow up. If you liked my answer please let me know so I can mark your question complete. Moose
