A lot of info, like the by-pass valve, is in the trailer manual they provide.

Yep, but like most things, they can't include everything without making the manual 6" thick. Page 50 states "the water heater is reached through an access panel on the outside of the trailer". Then, on page 53, it states "the by-pass kit is installed near the water heater". If we had taken better notes (or had younger brains) we would have remembered one was accessed from the outside and one from the inside. As it was, the only thing that "stuck" was how to remove the rod from the water heater. Oh well, it certainly got our old brain cells working.

You need to watch the video Escape Training/Orientation Video. We made it in 2008 or 9 and it covers a lot about the trailers ( there have been some changes to the trailers, but it's still worth watching.
I've had to watch it several times to recall systems, and I shot and edited it.

Glenn,
Have you given any thought to making a new one? Or one making additions covering topics not included in the original?

The equipment I used all belonged to The Vancouver Sun ( camera, wireless microphones, tripod ) and so did the editing software.
I've been retired a year and a half and have forgotten pretty much everything I thought I knew.

That's the video we watched over and again before picking up the trailer so we knew what to expect. However, watching it after picking up the trailer was even more helpful since we could try things "hands on". Excellent video and a life-saver for reaffirming things and discovering other things that one misses the first time around. Good job!!!

Is there any way to capture that video so it can be viewed offline on a tablet, smartphone or PC? I tried a couple of things and was not successful.

I capture YouTube videos all the time for viewing offline and I don't use any special "software." There are two things to remember, Cache and TMP files. Here's a bit of info that may help. DON'T CLICK THE "DOWNLOAD" BUTTON: Saving YouTube videos for offline viewing | PCWorld

That is using special software... it's just free from KeepVid and run on their computers (those are certainly handy features - being free and them running it ).
