Fresh water fill

I just bought a used 2001 jayco 238y eagle motorhome. For the life of me I can't find the fresh water tank fill point the city water hookup is on the driver's side. Also will the furnace work off battery power or does the generator have to be running.
Thanks

Welcome to the forum, but, unfortunately, I can't help with your questions. Hopefully, someone will be along that will have some helpful information.

The fresh water fill in many motorhomes is the same as the city water hookup but a handle or valve must be turned to fill the tank instead.

The heater is 12 volt and will run from the battery and propane tank.

X2

Being a much older unit you may not get a lot of responses. If that is the case, contact Jayco with your VIN number, and ask for the plumbing schematic.

Good Luck

Also - feel free to post pictures, of anything any everything. We might recognize some things and can help that way too!

I have a 02 Grey Hawk. My filler is next to the city water connection. Like someone else said there should be a fill valve real close. Your heater should run on battery power. Stan

The heater, furnace, will run on the 12 volt blower, but in many cases will run your battery down by the morning, if not plugged in to a charger. Furnace blowers consume a lot more juice than you would think.

Lots of covers on the bed and under the mattress and get up and turn the furnace on about an hour before you plan to get up. All will be well.
