I have been on the road for almost 3 weeks now, and have determined that the water fill is very slow. By Very slow I mean that to fill an empty fresh water tank with 60psi of pressure it takes about 30 minutes. I have tried opening the valves, and it doesn't seem to make a difference. Is this about the norm for others with the same type of fill system?

If you are not familiar with the 2013 DSDP fill system, it is a valve that is rotated to use your fresh water connection to fill the tank.

BTW - I did get my motors to sync up, and that is when I discovered the Trans Torque bushing had fallen apart. I have gotten it tight, but that was only 2 full turns, which I am certain is no where near enough. I have checked it before operating it, and have an appointment Monday with Guaranty RV in Oregon to look at all the slide issues. For now things have been working ok, we just hold our breath everytime we have to operate the slide. I have additional body damage, similar to my prior posts where I blamed the dealer for operating it on unlevel ground. Now I am not so sure that was the problem.

I will post an update once Guaranty looks at it.

The 1/2" pipes does not help if they only placed at least 3/4" to fresh water tank it would help.
They must think we are all retired and have the time, than they would probally tell us why not start to refill as your braking down camp.

What I have noticed is that all the camps I am at have terrible water pressure (ie: less than 60 is terrible), as I enjoy a good strong shower. I already have the oxygenics shower head. The pump in the coach provides good strong pressure, so often I am using both the pump and the shore connection. As a result, I get a lot of opportunity to refill the coach.

Now with 6 people, finding 30 minutes to cut of water is not the easiest task. But hey - we are on vacation!

Hey ReBaron73!

Glad to hear you found another reason for slide problems and hope the dealer can get all right.

Also glad to hear I am not the only one thinking it took an awful long time to fill the H2O tank. Took so long I forgot about filling it and came back into the barn to find the tank overflowing. Now that you tell me about 30 min I realize that the overflowing had not been going on for that long like I had feared.

So the issue is a change to 1/2 vent hose vs previous 3/4? That would explain the longer fill but not the reason for doing it. Have added it to my list of items to speak to the dealer about.

Very glad to hear you could take so much time at once to be with your family. Something they (and you) will always remember.

Enjoy yourself. I always try to remember what someone told me as a young boy:

"The only problems you have in life are with your or someone close to you's health. All the other things we call problems are only new experiances we would have just a soon not have gone thru"

Since I have the hose reel, it too is only 1/2", so that can explain the less than optimal flow from
Shore too.

In going to come up with a way to fill the tank automatically. On my swimming pool I installed a levelor system to accomplish auto fill. That should work here too, just need a bypass switch for when the water is in use. This will take some pondering.

I have focused on the water filter. The Flow Pur #6 Extruded Carbon Filter cartridge used by Newmar on our DSDP does an excellent job in filtering water but seems to really reduce water pressure. I plan in trying a different cartridge and see if that helps with water pressure and flow. FYI, my coach filters the water prior to the fresh water tank and it is a slow fill.

That's about the same time it takes to fill ours. I've forgotten it a couple of times and had water every where.

Yet till you have to drain a 3/4 tank. That took 2 hours, might have been faster to use the pump..

Interesting on the water fill. It took me 10 minutes to get to a 1/4 tank and thought it was something I was doing wrong.

Anybody have or seen a water system schematic?

Maybe you need one of these setups found in 2006 LAB & Essex.
