Towing – When towing the restroom trailer it is required that the waste and fresh water tank be pumped and drained to prevent structural damage or unsafe driving conditions. The stairs and hand rails need to be secured in place as well.
When connecting the trailer to a tow vehicle, attach the safety chains and breakaway cable. Then, connect the 7-Pin electrical cord to the vehicle. Notice that the coupler has an open/close pin system. Put the pin in the “close” position to lock the trailer.
The breakaway cable will activate the trailer’s emergency brakes if it becomes disconnected from the tow vehicle. If needed, the breakaway switch and brakes can be tested at any time to verify the system is functioning properly.
For safety, the break-away cable will activate the trailer’s emergency brakes if it becomes disconnected from the tow vehicle. The break away switch and brakes can be tested at any time to verify the system is functioning properly.
Steps – The fold-down steps on all trailers are designed to expand and retract quickly. To see how simple the steps are to operate, please refer to the video or photos.
Water Hook-Up – Attach a ¾ inch hose to the inlet for filling fresh water tank or accessing city water. A built in regulator maintains the water pressure between 40-60 psi, the optimum amount for operating the trailer’s water system. There is a water pressure gauge in the service area for monitoring the pressure. If the incoming water pressure exceeds 100 psi, reduce the pressure at the original source.
An inline shut-off valve is used for switching from the fresh water tank to city water as needed. An inline shut-off valve is used for switching from the fresh water tank to city water as needed. There is an in-line shut off valve to drain fresh water tank.
Electrical Hook-Up – The electrical system is a simple design. Trailers can be operated with as few as one to two dedicated 20 amp circuits. If there is an arctic package installed, the trailer operates using four dedicated, 20 amp circuits.
There is a 12-volt, Group 24 battery located on the tongue of the trailer that can be used to operate the basic functions of the trailer. Those functions include the interior and exterior lights, and fan. The length of time the battery system will function depends on the number of guest using the trailer. The potential range is approximately 1-12 hours. The 12-volt switch is located in the service area.
Leveling – Leveling the trailers is done by use of telescoping jacks mounted to the back and front of the trailer, depending on the model. To see the full operation of the jacks, please view the video.
