Roadtrek Water System
by Ronald Boyd. The description and photos are specific to the 2008 210 Versatile, but it should be applicable to to other similar models of roughly the same vintage. Helpful information for diagnosing water system problems and winterizing your Roadtrek for freezing weather. The document was obtained from the Yahoo Roadtrek website. (.pdf file, 2.7 MB).

Roadtrek Electrical Simulator
by John Slaughter.  Excellent simulator of the electrical system. Allows you to visualize the 12 V system (house battery and engine alternator), the 110 V AC systems (generator, shore power), the charger/inverter, and their interconnections, with various components on or off. His notes (.pdf file, 336 KB) are also well worth reading and provide good explanations of the isolator, battery separator, and other important components.
