Water Valve Panel

Can anyone tell me what each setting does specifically? I see what the tags say and it says to see the owners manual for details but there is nothing in the manual that talks about this. 2007 Jayco Eagle 5th wheel

They do the functions that are listed, where it gets confusing is the "Normal" setting. That is to get water from the tank using the pump.

If you want to use hook-ups, that is city water

If you want to fill the tank, that is tank fill

If you need to sanitize your tank, you use that setting and use a small piece of hose is a bucket of bleach water and the pump will put it into the tank.

If you are winterizing, use the short piece of hose in a gallon of antifreeze and the pump will put it into the lines, the same for sanitizing lines, only you use a bucket of water with some bleach, Again the pump will push it through the lines.

That pretty much answers my question. Yesterday, someone winterized my RV and when they were finished, they put the configuration in NORMAL. Not knowing it had been winterized, I showed up today, hooked up the city water hose and turned on the water. I turned on the faucet in the kitchen but nothing came out, no air, no water. I assume because I didn't turn on the water pump.

I don't think I affected the winterization because I didn't start the pump and if I'm right, the water wouldn't enter the lines, even though water was hooked up and turned on, unless the pump was started. Does this sound right

I sure don't want to go through the winterization process again if I didn't affect what was already done.

TIA

no it doesn't sound right. City pressurized water doesn't need the pump.

there may have been some water get in some of the lines

why did you hook up the water? where is the trailer?

It's a long story but here goes:

We left the camper at the campgrounds on Sunday and gave instructions that they were supposed to call me before they winterized so I could watch them do it since I have never seen it done.

I left before my wife so I called her and told her to disconnect the city water hose before she left which she did. We had planned tro go back today and clean out all the food and cloth stuff for the winter.

I got there before she did and not knowing it had been winterized, I hooked up the hose and turned on the water to get some to wash a few things down inside. When I didn't get any water, I started checking and found out it had been winterized but after your post, I didn't think I affected anything since I didn't turn the pump on.

Maybe I am wrong.

I am sure some water got in. I don't know for sure but if the hose was hooked up it would at least get to the manifold where all those switches are.

The city water connection is on the ouside of the camper right behind the manifold.

like I said...IMO there likely is water right to that manifold or in parts of the manifold.

I could be wrong and maybe someone could give a definitive answer but I would contact the people who winterized and ask them.

If that manifold freezes and cracks it might be a big job.

If you never moved the valves from "normal" position, then you likely still got fresh water to your water pump (maybe not "thru" it, but probably to it)

Now you could get a hand pump, and pump in a few pumps of "pink koolaid", or get a blow out plug, and give it a decent blast of air. (I would likely do both-air first). Dont change the setting from normal though.

As nbhybrid said. That valve manifold is costly. Save it, give it a few shots of koolaid.
