Default 1994 Roadtrek 190 newbie, need some guidance

Hi there,
We picked up a 1994 Roadtrek 190 Versatile (Chevy) last week. It needs some TLC, but is still very roadworthy and happy to be used again. Unfortunately the camper came with no documentation. I am piecing together docs I can find online and have the Roadtrek manual. Unfortunately the manual is quite spartan, lacking any illustrations, so simple things, like where does the front table get stowed when traveling are not apparent.

Does anyone know the make and model for the hot water heater on this year RT? Also, there are two unlabled water valves with no explanation in the manual. They sit under the galley. One faces front right after the fresh water connection and one faces downward on a line heading rearward. Can someone identify them and explain what they should be set at for normal operation and for draining? And last, I see a drain point next to the big sewerage dump pipe. Are there any other low point drains I should know about?

Thanks in advance. I'm already learning a lot by reading good postings here. The rest will come with time, use, trial and error.
- Will

If you're on Facebook there are a couple of very active Roadtrek groups there. I think you'll get a quick response...

Thanks for the tip. Looks like there are 8 Facebook groups. One appears to be the factory but it looks to be focused on publicity and promotional events. What are the best for service/repair type issues?

I added 1994 to the topic title so hopefully someone with a similar model will catch this topic.

If you can post a photo of the water heater someone here should be able to identify it. If it has an anode rod drain plug then it's probably a Suburban and if it has a nylon drain plug then it probably an Atwood. I don't recall hearing about and Roadtreks with Atwood water heaters though.

Thanks, it's definitely a (rusty) metal drain plug.

Roadtrek has user manuals that go back to 1990 on their web site.

I have downloaded their manual, it is helpful, but not very thorough and entirely without illustration or photographs. It does not cover the questions I have asked.
