Dumb water pump question

Having just spent a bit of time adding water shut offs to my 19H water system I thought about the water pump a bit.

Now I am on my 2nd year with my 19H after having tent trailers for over 25 years.

I have believed that the water pump is only for when the fresh water tank is used. When hooked to city it's the city water psi that drives the psi and flow and you don't use the water pump, in fact you need a psi regulator to hold the psi to ~40 psi or so?

I am correct is this belief yes?

Thanks!

Harry

Harry, there are no dumb questions. If I can add one thing to your question, if you leave your trailer for a long period of time.....Hiking, day trip etc. turn your water supply off while you are gone. I have heard stories of broken water lines, stuck toilet water valves and flooded campers.

Yeah, Camping Couple is right on. At a CG in AZ I saw a TT with water coming out the door and nobody home. I turned off the water hookup but the damage was pretty bad. They went on a day fishing trip and an inside line broke. Ugh, what a mess. We always turn off the water when leaving for a while.
Happy RVing,
Jeff

The only dumb question is the one you don't ask
