Mobile Unit Plumbing and Electrical Instructions

- **PLUMBING:**
  - Water inlets are located on the outside of every unit and come equipped with an inlet cap and breather vent.
  - To fill the onboard water tank, you must unscrew the cap from the inlet and place a hose inside the inlet.
  - Once the onboard tank is ¾ of the way full, turn off the water supply.
  - Onboard tanks may include an interior shut off valve that drains the remainder of the water to the outside of the unit.
  - If equipped with a shut off valve on the bottom of the fresh water tank, turn the knob to the “open” position to release the water at the end of service.
  - (During below freezing temperatures it is recommended that you empty your freshwater tanks to prevent damages.)
  - If your unit is not equipped with a drain, you may run the water through the faucet until the tank is empty.
  - While draining the onboard fresh water tank, the pump must be unplugged to prevent damage to the equipment.
  - All water transfer pumps and hot water heaters must be unplugged prior to service.
  - Water tanks must be filled before plugging any pump or hot water heater into an outlet.
  - Failure to unplug the pump and heater may result in damage to the equipment.
  - It is your responsibility to check the water levels in your water tank before and during service to be sure that the pump is not in operation while the tank is empty.
  - During transportation, plumbing fixtures may become loosened due to movement.
  - It is your responsibility to check your equipment before and after use to prevent leaks and water damage from occurring.
  - It is recommended to winterize your equipment after usage during extended periods of cold temperatures.
  - Remaining water inside water lines can cause damage to equipment under pressure such as water pumps, hot water heaters, espresso and coffee machines and glass rinsers.
  - Pouring RV safe antifreeze down drains and inside water tanks will help prevent water from freezing and promote longer lasting equipment.

- **ELECTRICAL:**
  - Every unit is equipped with a main electrical inlet located on the outside which enables you to plug into a shore power location or a generator.
  - Depending on your electrical needs your unit will contain either a 30amp or 50amp inlet.
  - The recommended adapter and plug will be provided on a case by case basis in accordance with your plans to locate power.
  - If a generator is included with your build, we will recommend a plug that directly connects the generator to the main inlet on your unit.
  - If you intend to use shore power, we will recommend a dogbone adapter that will typically enable you to plug into any 120v outlet.
  - There is a main breaker panel installed inside every unit.
  - Locations may vary.
  - Once you have received your completed build, it is your responsibility to become familiar with the main breaker panel.
  - There will be a main breaker and a set of breakers that are designated for outlets, light switches and any high powered elements such as Air Conditioning Units, Espresso machines, or cooking equipment.
  - The breakers will be labeled on the main panel box.
  - It is important to know this box well in the event that there is a power surge.
  - It is recommended that the breakers be turned off after service and are not turned on until an electrical connection has been made between the unit and its main power source (generator or shore power.)
  - Please be advised that if you are running multiple high powered elements within the unit that plugging into a main power source that does not have the necessary electrical capabilities, will result in power trip.
  - Always be aware of your unit’s electrical capacity and be sure to only use powering sources that are capable to maintaining a constant power flow in accordance with the required wattage inside your unit.
  - Before plugging in your unit, make sure that the on-demand equipment such as your water pump, hot water heater, espresso, coffee machine and air conditioning unit is turned off before you turn on the breakers.
  - Leaving these breakers on as well as leaving your water pump plugged in may cause a power surge during startup.
  - Some equipment requires larger “start up” wattage during start up than during operation.
  - It is your responsibility to learn all of your equipment and the electrical requirements.
