    Hey Joe,

    Any chance you ever were able to get those pix of the water pump and univolt? We chickened out on wintering in the A/S so we're working on getting back in there now that the weather is above freezing.

    Joe I live in the Knoxville area and have owned a 1976 31' for the last 25 years. We used the AS a great deal and then I stored it for a long time ( not good for the AS). I also own a small motorhome. I can tell you my first love is still my AS. I am now retired and have the time and desire to get the AS back on the road. I would love to pick your brain about some of the "things" you did to your AS.

    I don't know about a thread, as the topic does not apply to everyone.

    A water manifold is used to provide a centeral location for all the water system valves/controls. This kind of a system was not used by the manufacturer in the older units. It was very difficult to access each valve to each line segment (i.e. cold water line to the water heater, hot water line coming from the hot water heater, cold water line to the tub, etc.): some valves could be accessed from within the closet floor, others elsewhere.

    What's more is this manifold was made for high pressure, unlike most travel trailer plumbing. Meaning that I can use high pressure shore water without having to regulate the pressure.

    Check valves (visible in the picture) keep high pressure from my water pump.
