You have it correct. There are also several more combinations for sanitizing the tank, lines, and winterizing.

Easy to understand in the owners manual I got, but it is different from what I was used to.

I stand corrected. Guess I just added to the confusion.

Howdy,
I have a 31FK, likely the same setup you have in the water department though. What cb1000rider stated is correct. When you flip to country fill or the sanitize positions you need to turn the pump on. Nice that the put a switch back there for you if the suction doesn't start, you may have some air in the lines breaking the vacuum, a good way to bleed out the air is to let the pump run and open the low point drains until they quit spitting air, generally just a few seconds. Then you'll notice strong suction to fill you tank and no need to elevate your fill container.

I have a 2013 Melbourne 29A and the following is from my owner's manual, Page 8-10.

"COUNTRY WATER FILL

Generally speaking, this setting is used to fill the water tank when dry camping.
1. If needed, sanitize the water system prior to travel.
2. Move the “water heater bypass valve” to the NORMAL position.
3. Remove the city water connection inlet cap and attach a short non-toxic
drinking water hose running from your container of potable water to the city
water connection inlet.
4. Place the utility center valves in the “Country Fill” position.
5. Turn ON the water pump.
6. Enter the motor home and open the cold water supply faucets to bleed air
from the water lines. When the water lines are nearly full, you may experience
some "air pockets." Allow them to escape before closing the cold water supply
faucets.
7. The water heater will fill first, followed by the supply lines and faucets.
8. When at your campsite, turn the appropriate (12-volt or 120-volt) water heater
control switch ON.
To disconnect
During the filling process, periodically check the fresh water tank level using the
monitor panel located in the Command Center. When the fresh water tank is full, it
is normal to see water running from the fresh water overflow tubes onto the
ground.
9. Shut OFF the water pump.
10. Disconnect the non-toxic drinking water hose and reinstall the city water
connection inlet cap."

The only part of the whole process that to me is not logical is that the valve arrangement that's called "Normal" is for using the pump to supply fixture water. We don't dry camp so for us that's not "normal". However, when we're on the road it is handy when you neend to flush the toilet.. There is a pump switch conveniently located in the bathroom as well as at the inlet location and the Command Center.

My wife has a problem with that term. I told her that is the commonly used term so get over it.

After all do you have a "Stop" button on your computer, no you push the start button to turn it off.
