Too Many levers at city water hookup

We are out on our very first camping trip in our new 34RLTS 5th wheel - yea! When hooking up the city water I am confused by all of the many little levers and what the actual settings should be. Through trial and error (over filled the water tank) I finally think I am on City Water. There is no diagraham or tutorial I can find about these levers in the owners manual or you tube.

Are there some resources available?

Many thanks

Georgia Biker

My owners manual has a description of the procedure but my wife has real problems understanding it.

Her main problem is she thinks [B]NORMAL[/B means we are on city water. If you can understand what each configuration means, just place the valves in that position.

I like the arrangement over my old rig because everything is in one spot.

Yep... to the Amish master plumber in charge of Jayco's plumbing dept... NORMAL means you're boondocking and using the fresh water tank / water pump.

There was no mention of the settings in my 2013 manual for my Pinnacle, but there was one in the 2012 manual. So I downloaded it and printed that part out.

Gee, is this forward progress ? Our 2004 has one inlet marked "City Water", and another right next to it marked "Fresh Water Fill". About as simple as you could ask for. No valves, no levers, no confusion. That is what I call the KISS principle (keep it simple, stupid). JMHO.

It's all because of being able to put antifreeze into the water system without having direct access to the pump. Jayco has used the manifold system since 2001 on their motorhomes. Our 2001 DESINGER MH and now, our SENECA has the exact same set-up.

And Yes "Normal" is using the pump and on-board tank.

Thanks for the replies but I guess no one else knows what all the levers are for either. We'll just keep trying until everything works and then make some notes.

Thanks

I just went out and took a picture of my setup. I don't know if yours is the same but here it is for what it is worth. As far as resources, Jayco has been very kind to answer my questions. I sent an email to them using their contact page at the Jayco website and they got right back to me with the requested diagram.Click image for larger version
