Ok, just bought 2006 Bambi and on maiden voyage trip but can't hook up water cause it is spraying out under the pedal that flushes the toilet.., And there is water leaking into the back compartment where you turn on/off drain valves, I guess I will look under the bed ...

It had been winterized because I put drain plug in water heater and closed back drain valves.... Is There something else I should have opened or closed or do I probably have breaks (which I suspect)... We had a brutal winter

Thanks for help

Sounds like winter damage. I blow out all my lines (hold the flusher down and open faucets) and then add RV antifreeze to be safe it's sounds like some water remained and froze during the winter. Sorry you had to go through this.

Look at the winterization kit made by Camco. I installed one of these and now use RV antifreeze every time it gets below freezing. No problems with freezing.

good winterizing info here

BlueSky - you mention closing valves, but did you drain and blow out all the water in your lines? Did you put antifreeze in?
