So...we aren't the only ones. My reason for posting originally was to let everyone know the procedure and hopefully alert Jayco, if anyone from there is monitoring this forum, that they don't include this info in the little manual they provide, and it seems dealers aren't fully aware either.

I had to turn the screen backwards on my Greyhawk to winterize it, this seems to be a common problem with all the Jayco Class C's. Once I winterized, I turned the screen around again so the valve would work correctly when on city water.

I had the same issue when I tried the one time when I was running low on fresh water. It started to draw water in but then stopped. Just thought being a newbie, I didn't listen when that part was shown to me. I will check mine out next trip and update.

I'm a little confused. If I can not get my water to run with city fill because my check valves are bad according to technician today, can I fill the tank with the method yall are talking about? thanks

Not all have this problem. When I winterized last year and for multiple country fills, I have always been able to get the pump primed without turning the filter around. Darn, hope I haven't jinxed it.

We had no problem with the winterizing... of course the PDI tech told us that the container with the anti-freeze had to be no more than a foot or so below the fresh water intake, and when starting it going hold the jug just above the level of the intake (to start it siphoning) Once it was going, just sat the gallon jug on top of a little stool, and away it went.

Seems like it just needs a little help starting.

And yes, country fill works the same way. Use the same short hose, and put into a 5 gallon container of fresh water (with the valve in the country fill position), and turn on the pump.

Well I tried it all. Nothing has worked at all for me in the Redhawk. No water, no way. Taking it in next week. Pretty frustrating but we had fun on our New Year's trip in spite of it . thank goodness the campground was nice!

Check value went bad on my redhawk. Instead of spending $60 on another cheap value prone to failure I spent $10 at home depot. Working perfect and took about 15 min to fix!
