Gravity fill on 2015 265RKS
We are still newbies here and despite our research, we can't figure one thing on our fifth wheel: how to fill the fresh water tank when not using city water?
In the old days, you just had to remove a cap and stick the hose in the trailer to gravity fill it. This doesn't exist anymore on new models?
We arrived at the fresh water station of a park, where we were at for the weekend with no hookups (our idea of "roughing it"!), to fill up our fresh water tank. I'm attaching 2 pictures so you can see what our water station looks like on the 265RKS and what we had to work with.
The pump switch located at the station: I would assume this is for pumping winterizing fluid in the system... so we filled a small bucket of drinking water and tried to pump it using that switch, but that did not work either.
Do you just stick the plastic end of the hose at the filling station to your city fill with the filter and hopes it fills it? Do you need to run the water pump inside the 5w (to me, this seems to be only for pumping water that is already in the tank).
The user manual is less than informative when it comes to filling the fresh water tank. And our dealer probably thought we'd be plugged in all the time, so the walk-through didn't cover that at all.
Thank you for any advice & tips possible!
