City water hookup

I am going out for the first time with my 93 Winnebago Vectra 37 Footer.

I am not sure which one I hook up, anyone know?

There is a hose on the left, then a hookup on the right. I assume it is the hookup, but what is the hose for?

Yeah, the only thing I see is the hook up you mention so I'm think that's your fresh water connection.

The hose appears to be something a prior owner added. is that insulating foam that it's coming out of? I'd trace it to see if you can figure out where it leads. It looks like it's a male hose end exposed so that would make me think it's a "source" but...

I'd connect a hose to the built in connection while you're still at home. Turn off your water pump and see if you've got water pressure inside the coach. You'll also need to locate your fresh water tank fill valve in order to be able to take fresh water aboard.

Good luck

Rick

Just don't leave the water for a long period of time till you figure out which one is the city water connection as I have heard of people connecting their hose to the wrong one and it is a black tank flush and they flood their camper with poop

That's what I was thinking too Steve, but the hose has a male connection on it can't be attached directly to another source.

Your point is still the same though... learn what each of them do before you trust it enough to leave it unattended.

You can download the users manual from the Winnebago website, resource area. Should help

I have the Manuals, but the pic is not matching what I have. I will do that, hook up to it at home. I think it is the one on the right, but still want to know what the other hose is. I have separate flushes for the grey and black water so I don't think I have to worry about overflowing tanks, but I will proceed with caution.

Be sure to use a pressure reducer.
