    New owners of a 378MBS with a few questions.

    Greeting GD Owners, Just purchased our 2024 Solitude last month and so far loving it. Been out once and getting ready to head out again. We do have a few questions we are hoping you can answer:
    Noticed water spilled on kitchen floor the 3 times we completed towing. Even though the water pump is off we have found water on the floor. I suspect the faucet handle is opening up and residual water in the line is spilling so for now we are using a small bungy cord to keep the handle closed.
    I have water in my fresh water tank and it appears there is NOT anyway to empty the fresh water tank except to run it into the waste tank- is this correct?
    When storing the camper how do I power down the 12v fridge, throw the breaker?
    While crawling underneath the slide out with the fireplace I noticed a lever under the slide, i did not touch it , does anyone know what this is for?

    Thanks all, I appreciate any feedback.

    1. Water sometimes drips from the faucet. We have noticed that the faucet rotates sometimes while driving and then the bumps on the way cause it to drip. Never notice the tap turn on though.
    2. The handle under your kitchen slide is the drain for the fresh water tank. Just pull and and stand back while the water pours out.
    3. I don't have the 12V fridge. I still have the Norcold 2118 absorption fridge so can't help there but either hit the breaker or find a switch to turn it off in the manual.

    And the level should be for the auto leveling system. There should be another one somewhere for the other direction.

    Your 12-volt frig should have a built-in way to turn it off, check the owner's manual. Be sure to shut it down before storage, don't rely on the battery kill switch. Some have permanently damaged their fridges due to power issues during storage.

    Just gone out on another trip - the shelves in the closet with the washer/dryer hook up have fallen each time we have pulled the fifth wheel . Anyone have any ideas on how to prevent the shelves from falling ?

    Another question - what do you use to prevent items in the refrigerator from shifting? When we had a TT we used the tension bars but they do not expand enough for our current refrigerator .

    Sorry can't help with this one. My shelves have never fallen. They are actually pretty tight.
