What is what?

We just purchased a Rushmore 35RL but some things are still a bit confusing.
Can someone help me here?
Some of the labels are missing or faded to a point I cannot tell what is what.
Top left, I got that, fresh city water. Lower left, got that too, black tank flush.
What is the left center connection for?
What are the 3 valves in the center right?

Tried to reference the owners manual, but that thing is about as worthless as....well it is just worthless.

Can you take a picture and post it? Usually there is a black tank valve, and 2 gray tank valves.

There is a fresh water fill outside near that tank, would this be a 2nd fill location?

I think the three small valves are your low point drains. Drains almost all the water out of the lines after you disconect city water.

I think the one with the hose on it goes back to a beer keg in the storage compartment.

Now I would rather have that than my outside sink draining into my grey tank

If nothing else that would be a great add-on feature. Send that idea up to the Crossroads people.

Thumbs down What's what?

If you already have a freshwater fill point outside this compartment, then my best guess is that the lower hose port is for a black water tank flusher. That is pretty much the setup that I have on my 2015 Rushmore. The upper one is the city water hook up but the other is to allow hooking up a water hose to flush the black water tank while draining it. Word of caution, if that is what it is, DO NOT attempt to flush the black water tank unless the tank drain is opened. You could end up rupturing the tank if there is no where for the pressure to go.

In addition, do not use your freshwater hose to flush your black water tank. Get a cheap hose dedicated to use only for a black tank flush hose.

It's not the tank flush inlet. You can see the tank flush below in silver trim.

I do have a dedicated white hose for the fresh water connection.

Looks like the panel on our 38ck. Hose connector is antifreeze, blue handles water heater bypass and ez winterizer.

I have the same unit and cannot figure out what that connection is for. I actually posted about it before running across this post.

I would send the photo to Crossroads RV or to a Crossroads RV dealer, and ask for help.
