Preparing to take our new 07 Horizon on its maiden voyage and wanted to sanitize and fill the water tank. Hooked the hose to the fresh water intake and set valve for filling. Turned on hose spigot and water poured out the "fresh water dump" located midway in the center under the coach (not the overflow hose). Now we can't find the "fresh water dump valve"!!! From reading the manual, it SHOULD be on the upper left wall in the wet bay (to the left of the soap container). Not there! We can see what looks like the open section of sheet metal that is shown in the photo, but there is no valve.
From searching on the forum we see that they are sometimes locate in other bays (i.e. behind the entry door or in the propane area). Can someone with a 2007 Horizon or Vectra help us out?
Thanks, Judy

Look in the ceiling of your basement compartments. A large "T" handle with a white hose in the vicinity about 1 1/2 inches in diameter.

Mine is on the right side, second compartment on the ceiling at the forward edge of the compartment. It is almost directly above where the water drain dumps the water out.

Remember to open the littler door where you can stick a hose in to fill whenyou fill the tank. That relieves pressure in the tank and prevents rupturing it.

2007 Horizon and Vectra TD models do not have a gravity water fill.

Our water tank dump is between the first and second passenger side storage bays near the top of the bay on the rear side of the heater plenum chamber.

Thanks Jim!! We found it behind the outdoor radio next the the heater hose. Phew....

BTW, Troy at Winnebago did not know, so when we called back to let him know where, someone else answered and he DID know. The knowledge bank grows.
