One more thing, while your hwh is filling, open the nearest hot water tap to the water heater. This will allow any gases to escape. Once it stops spitting and runs fully, your water heater is full.

I thought about adding that, but didn't. This is a good point, you don't want to waste water with a sputtering faucet.

No reason not to use the on board facilities, but if you have difficulty, for a stop like what you're talking about, you could just bring along (or buy when you stop) a couple gallons of fresh water, and you'd be fine.

Just did the bleach sanitation process recommended above but when I turned off my hose and turned on my water pump...I have a lot of air in my water pipes and my water pump ran continuously. I have a new Jayco X20E and have had no problems with this when I was hooked to to the campground water supply in two camping trips this summer. I am going to Vermont next week and need my fresh water tank and pump to be operational since there will be no water available at the campground we are going to. I'm wondering if I should hook up my hose again and turn on all my faucets including the inside and outside showers to see if that gets rid of the air in the pipes? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Fill up your tank turn your pump on and go to your furthest faucet. Outside shower if you have it or bathroom. I start with the cold and let it run out until no air and then do the same for the hot. It just takes time

+1 It seems to take forever to get the air out when you're on the pump. Hooking up to city to get air out of the lines will help some.

Tried running water through my outside shower....it continued to sputter and eventually no water came out at all! Today I called Pentair Shurflo the manufacturer of my water pump and the tech rep. there suggested connecting a hose to the city water supply outlet and turning on all the faucets and letting them run for awhile and then trying the water pump again. I opened all the faucets...inside and outside showers and even held the toilet flushing pedal down. Initially, a lot of air came out of the kitchen hot water faucet but eventually the water flowed just fine everywhere. Disconnected the water hose and turned on the water pump and with a few minutes..I'm back to sputtering and hardly any water flow. Also, the water pump never turns off. I just purchased my Jayco camper in June and the water pump has never been used. Suffice it to say that I'm not happy! Any suggestions anyone has would be appreciated

plus have you checked the position of your valves????

There is a valve from your fresh tank. Verify it is open

Mine also has a hose to suck antifreeze from a jug. If you do verify it is closed

That was the problem!!! The valve that you use to winterize the water line was turned the wrong way....as soon as I turned it the correct way..the pump pressurized the system and turned off. Fortunately, I connected with a technician at the dealership where I bought my camper who diagnosed the problem in seconds!!Thanks so much to all who tried to help me and hopefully my learning experience will help someone else
