Filling water issues

Can anyone help... First time were went to fill fresh water tank.. Mt won't fill... I figure I know some things.... I cannot find a fill water tank valve...Im sure that it has one cannot find it...

Can you post a picture of the wet bay? There should be a valve near where you connect the hose to the coach. One position tank gets filled, and the other position the coach water lines get water from the hose. I could post a picture of mine, but it is 6 years older than yours and probably different.

Usually Fleetwood has a valve right at the water pump to fill the tank. Follow the water line from the water tank to the water pump. Now look for a valve before the pump. That valve when opened should allow water from the pressurized side of the line to go into the tank.

Does your wet bay look anything like mine? My city/tank fill valve is the long black lever just about center of the black panel.

Wow! I was wondering the same thing with our 1993 Fleetwood Coronado, there is a hatch with what looks like the gas fitting to turn on the hot water heater, a valve with a screw top closure & a pressure thingy when lifted water pours out of another faucet like valve in same area. That is on the keft side of the coach. Then there is a much smaller (size of a hand) locked hatch- inside it has what I assuned was the water inlet, the inlet is covered with a plug. Is that where I would put the potable water?
Wish I knew how to post pics here.

That is your gravity fill for potable water.

Terryshirley-

Here is a link to an electronic copy of the owners manual for your Bounder. The fresh water system instructions start on page 7-01 (page 60 of the document).

Try reading this thread. Posting pictures is probably different depending on how you are posting here. iPhone vs Android phone vs computer etc. I can explain how I post, but I don't know if your IRV2 access is the same as me.

Posting pictures
