Ok, Grumpy, I understand. But I guess that means that you don't have good access to your pump. My pump's rubber diaphram went bad awhile back, and it took only about 15 min to change, because I had good access to the pump. And the pump has a simple pick-up tube for antifreeze that seems much easier to use than a complicated system of valves and levers. Give me simple every time. JMHO

Here is the panel from my 2011 Eagle. I have no problems with it.


Also, here is the long thought out solution to Surge Guard security! LOL

Haha I was a communications guy in the green machine for a while, maybe that's why it makes sense. Actually it's straightforward, just put the corresponding valve in the up or side position as the symbol shows. Won't help is your rig has a different layout, of course. I'm surprised that you don't have a diagram close by the valves but if not, I'm sure Jayco will send you one.

As several have said, "Normal" in Jayco-speak is using the onboard tank and pump. Even at a full hookup site, this is the way we do it. We use shore water ONLY to refill the tank. You don't want to spring a leak while you're hooked up to an inexhaustible supply of water, plus using the onboard pump ensures you won't have damaging pressure spikes.

One thing that is bad, connecting the water hose to the black water sprayer, thinking you have connected to the City water inlet. Then walk away. It makes a mess. A big mess.

I had no idea what you all were talking about speaking of all the levers until I saw one of the posted pictures. Certainly have none of that on my two trailers haha... My two trailers has a city water connection and a fresh water tank fill port. (Early 2000 vintage)

I need to get out more often and look at the new stuff I guess. Might make me re-think some of the so called helpful information I sometimes pass along to questions found on here...
