Wet bay?

My wet bay has a selector switch for city water, fresh water tank, winterizing and dry camping. The first 3 I understand but what would the dry camping position be used for in a wet bay when you have no water hookups? I have looked through my manual multiple times to no avail. Thanks in advance!

For when you aren't hooked to city water, in other words using water from the tank.

Figured it out. Turn selector to dry camping, hook water hose to inlet valve, other end into a water jug, turn on water pump and it will fill the fresh water tank with water from the jug. Nice feature!

Wow that's interesting and could be quite handy in certain situations. Funny no mention of this feature in the manual.

Interesting. Did they actually change the wording on the panel? It used to say something different. Your "dry camping" used to be "normal"
Assuming you still have the lousy 4-way Anderson valve though? It is so temperamental. I was actually considering replacing mine with separate lines for each function. Tired of my valve sporadically filling my tank and overflowing when hooked up to city water.

Yes, the wording is “dry camping” and yes it’s also still the 4 way selector valve, so far I haven’t had issues with it.

Yeah. Didn’t have a problem with mine until after the first year. Just a bad design IMO

Yeah, my experience thus far with the manual is sheer disappointment! My model is a 2019, but it came with a 2018 manual. Fleetwood website only has manuals for 2018 and older and after looking at manuals 5 years back on the website they haven’t changed. I only figured out this “dry camping” mode by going to other forums and found a similar mode called “country fill” on another brand. Then I just tested it on my coach to verify it worked the same way.

I had to replace my Anderson Valve...not that bad. I have made it a practice NOW to have NO pressure on any system when I change it from one "notch to the other"..the "O" rings seem to possibly pop off/dislodge if pressure is put on them.
