2014 hideout 210lhs water pump

Hey all,

The Mrs and I were just married in October! Good stuff! Instead of a honey moon she wanted a TT we decided on the keystone hideout 210lhs I located the water pump under the stove but it's blocked by two walls and slide cabinets. Anyone know of an easy way to access the pump to winterize? Or am I better off adding the antifreeze to the fresh water tank?

Thanks so much in advance!

Mike

Congrats!

On my Outback 210rs I could not access the water pump either since it was near the wall under the couch. I purchased a manual hand pump from my RV dealer and pumped it in from the city water inlet from the outside. My wife was inside the camper to open/close the faucets.

It was really easy and I do not have to worry about filling and flushing the fresh water tank in the spring.

Good luck!

On my Cougar, they included a valve that would select whether the feed for the pump was the fresh water tank or a length of hose that could be inserted into a jug of RV antifreeze. If you can't access the pump, maybe they did you the favor of providing something similar nearby?

If I blow out the lines with air first through the city water inlet, I can winterize the pipes with a single gallon of RV antifreeze, although I usually make it two just to make sure a good amount makes it into the holding tanks to prevent freezing should there be any water down there.

Thank you guys!! I cant get access to it and there is no other info in the manual or online. I will purchase one of the hand pumps and blow out the lines and pump it in. Not to sound dump but my other question then would be as I pump to the city water connection will the fluid go into my water pump? I am told that I have to get some antifreeze in there.

Thanks again guys

Mike

Great trailer Congrats on both occasions.
We don't use the fresh water tank so I winterized that way.
But to use the water pump... the best way to access it is by pulling out the bottom drawer next to the oven.

If yours has same as mine, there are some plastic levers on the drawer slides that you push. If installed the same, one side will push up, the other down.

I believe that's true. Should have black plastic tabs on both sides towards front of guide rails. Push down on one tab with thumb nail and pull up on other. Drawer should pull right out.
Maybe like this...

Hey yeabuddy

One last question What size are the wheel covers on your camper? The wife and I love our 210lhs!

Thanks!
