Water Pump Valves Question

could or can anyone explain in simple terms how all the valves associated with the water pump on my 09 LTKE work??
Position of valves for 1.camp water only, 2.low pressure camp water and fresh water tank combined, 3. fresh water tank only.

Thanks in advance from Rociada, NM.

I know what you're asking. I'm not sure you need to worry about valves. The only way we've been able to use camp (city) water and freshwater was to turn the water pump on with water in the fresh tank and city water turned on. City water only was to ensure it's on and ensure water pump off. Fresh tank only was to ensure city water off and water pump on. Having both on does help with low water pressure while using the washing machine. Is there another issue you're having with water pressure? David

I'm guessing your 09 LTKE has the newer valve setup in the utility center? I have no idea what they are or their setup as I haven't seen one up close. I did a drawing of the "Current" '08 model and older some time ago that gave a discription of the valves.

Would agree with David that for normal use, other than repair or winterizing....you shouldn't have to move any of the valves. Would assume that you do have one valve that will allow you to fill the water tank while connected to 'city' water? It should be closed normally and opened while filling.
