2014 Jayco Eagle 315 RLTS - Where is gravity fill?

We bought this 5th wheel at the end of the season last year and only used it twice.

We are wanting to sanitize but are unable to find the gravity fill connection.

Does anyone know where it is on the Jayco Eagle 315 RLTS?

Would appreciate any help you can provide.

Thanks

I think Jayco has manuals on line. Maybe Google 315 RLTS and look for pics of the utility bay? I think it's like our 2014 and done thru the utility bay with levers positioned for tank fill.

My Eagle does not have a gravity fill. I use a short piece of hose and a funnel at the fresh water connection.

We have a different line (Eagle premier) but check the water control console (kinda like the cockpit of a 747 only more wet). We have a series of valve positions for our water options. There is one for "country Fill" and another for "city fill" (or something similar). The "country fill" uses the pump and short siphon hose to fill the fresh tank, similar to winterizing. The "city fill" uses a water hose (from a water tap) to fill the fresh tank. I can't imagine how long it would take to fill the tank using the siphon method. I think I'd skip the shower, "go" in the woods and stick with pre-packaged adult bevs.

Where is the gravity fill connectionon the 31.5 RTLS

Thanks everyone for the info. I do appreciate you taking the time to post.

I only have a city water connection. Upon further investigation, I found in the manual that I am supposed to hook up to the city water connection and put the other end of the hose in my container of water and turn on the pump.

I have tried this but get no suction. Still trying to figure out a solution.

We have 2 valves that configure the water system. Each has 3 positions. Among the settings are:
City water
City fill
Winerize
Country fill
Normal (I think that one is for using tank water)
Sanitize

There is also a switch for the pump.
These valves are in addition to the ones to bypass the water heater.
Doing this from memory, hope you get the idea.

Ok, I called Jayco. They insisted that I could fill the fresh water tank through the city water connector. Well, as it turns out, I couldn't. I did find it in the rear of the 5th wheel under my window as esacnj said in the previous post.

Thanks All
