Convenience center connections
 
2 Attachment(s)
Attachment 3586Can someone help to identify the connections not labeled in my convenience center. The one at upper right I have identified as black tank flush, the Lowe left one is the one I am unsure of. Please see photos
The RV is a 2018 Redwood 3401 RL 5th wheel
Thanks in advance.

The year and model will help us help you. Different years and models look similar, but can be different.

Looks different now (different than our 2014 36RL that had a hoze and a cap), but that should be your antifreeze "in" port.

Thanks atom ant. There is a way to use the pump to introduce anti freeze but you have to open up a wall panel in the basement to divert suction by way of a switchover valve. I guess I just never realized that was the diverted input

We have a vintage Redwood as Brad did, and the water filter access door in the basement wall (driver's side) allows you to turn that quarter turn valve to close off the pump suction to the fresh water tank and enable the anti-freeze suction hose.

Lower left is for your anti-freeze inlet; you need to open the panel in the garage to switch the valve on the pump though. I removed the screws and used wide velcro to hold the panel in place on my 340RL. Makes it easy to access everything.

That sounds like a good idea. Looks to me like a bad design to access the switchover valve. However 2 screws and you’re in and can see all sorts of things
