23FB Bypass Valves

We are on our first trip with our 2014 23FB International. Unfortunately, we picked it up in freezing temps and didn't have a chance to de-winterize until we were in a warmer place.

We are attempting to hook up city water and find that when the water is turned on we have flow coming out of the white (primarily) and red drains near the rear.

We have closed the 2 valves at the front, and the hot-water heater valve is in the "In Use" position. Is there another by-pass valve we are missing? The manual mentions a valve on the road-side rear access -- we aren't sure where that is on this model.

Thank you so much!

Tom

I have the 25 FB and the drain you are talking about is in the exterior storage locker, aft road side. The valve is just to the left as you look in there.

Larry - thanks for the response! What you mention is exactly what I read in the manual but I guess was confused as to "exterior" storage locker. I assumed, wrongly, that meant on the exterior of the trailer (where there is no access.) Eventually, I did find 2 valves on the floor behind the small panel below the slide out pantry. A quarter turn on each of those did the trick.

Thanks again for the response!

Tom

There is removable panel under the pantry. Pull straight out and it will pop off.... It's not hinged. You will find a second set of drain valves that connect to the rear drains.

Not sure why that posted late, but obviously you figured it out. Disregard my last post.
