Default RV Newbie : Water System Questions

Just picked up a new Fun Finder X 160. Went though the Owner’s manual but still got questions. Will be grateful if you answer following questions:

1. Do I have to Sanitize my fresh water system for a ‘brand’ new trailer?
2. Do I have to have the water pump on always or only ‘not’ connected to the ‘city supply’?
3. What is ‘gadget’ can I use to load ‘fresh water’ through the ‘potable water’ inlet.

Have been tenting for many years and now going luxury!

Greetings prasa!!

We will take these in order of necessity...

#2... The water pump is for the fresh water tank only. 'City Supply' bypasses the water pump and feeds the faucets directly.

#1... You do not have to sanitize the fresh water system, but I would recommend flushing the entire system, both the fresh water tank and the city water supply system. Doing that has two benefits, first it cleans any dust, saw dust or debris left over from when it was built, and second it primes the system. Just fill the fresh water tank half way, turn on the water pump, then turn on all the faucets and let them run for 3 or 4 minutes. Next turn off the pump, connect your supply hose and again turn on faucets for a few minutes. After you’re done, slide under the trailer and open the ball cock valve on the fresh water tank, (Fresh water tank is white, and is usually under the trailer directly below the water/power hookups) and completely drain the fresh water tank. Next remover the sewer cap, and open the “Grey Water” relief valve, empty the tank then close the valve. Remember to close the ball cock valve under the trailer and you are done.

#3... to fill the fresh water tank, I connect the supply hose supplied with the trailer to the nearest water valve, then put the end in the water tank opening on the side of the trailer, (It is sized so the supply line will stay "In Position" without you having to hold it), turn on water and monitor the filling from the monitor panel inside the trailer.

Hope this helps, let us know if you have any other questions.
