The water intake and waste connections are typically located at the street side rear corner of the trailer. We have a 73 model which was a first year body style change so I'm not certain that ours is the same as yours. Our water inlet is located inside the access hatch just to the rear of the water heater cover. The waste connection and dump valves are located in a curved hatch located below the water intake connection. The dump valve handles are there too.
We have several Avion owners here who may be able to assist you as well. You might want to PM Silverhobby, or Kristi Foster as they both own, or recently owned 1968
and 1969 model years.
