Oddly enough the tank WAS full of water....the company that de-winterized it left it full but they forgot to turn the valve on so no water was pumped to the faucets. The meter also doesn't read correctly.

I understand the meter isn't completely accurate but should it read empty when the tank is full? Can I replace the meter myself?

Snake,

You need to turn the pump on at the control panel in order to pressurize your water lines. This will solve the water part of the problem. While your at the control panel, if your not familiar with how to energize the circuit to check your tank levels, you been to put pressure with your finger on the elongated oval to find out what your tank levels are. The LEDs will light up showing your levels.

I'm sorry if i'm telling you something you may already know, but I am trying to be helpful. From what I have read so far it seems you may not be familiar with how some of these systems work. We all started at some point in time.
Let us know how you are doing.

Richard

I just noticed that your trailer is not new. Sorry for jumping to conclusions. It just seemed to me that most people here have new RVs. I thought you may have not been shown the ins and outs of how these systems word.

If your tank is not reading right you have several options. I would try and fix the existing one before spending money on it. When you get home flush your tank out a few times. Put a bucket of ice into the tank through the outside inlet and take your trailer for a drive. The ice may clean off the sensors and if that doesn't work post again because there are several other remedies. Your trailer is not that old and your fresh water sensor should be good for a lot longer.

I'll give this a try.

Thanks!
