Somewhat of a newbe

I used to have a southwind motorhome back in '95 and when I got to a park all I had to do was connect the water hose to the faucet, sewer line, and electricity. Now I have a 2002 Condor that has another connection that says potable water. So what is this water for and where does it go to. It also says flush before filling.

sounds like a gravity fill for the fresh water tank... if you want to fill the tank, you would connect your hose there and turn it on.

Of course they want it to be sanitary, so they recommend you fill it up and empty it, and fill it again.

Sounds more like to me you have a black tank wash and a potable fill. They look the same. On one of my previous coach's I had three, potable, black wash and gravity fill. On my present coach I have 3 and a half. Black tank wash, gravity fill, and then a combination with a valve that directs water to coach for shore pressure or to fresh water tank fill.

Potable water is your fresh / drinking water. There is probably a valve that controls whether from that connection the fresh water tank is filled or the water is provided to the fresh water system in the RV. You should use a white hose with this connection.

You may have another similar looking connection that provides the cleaning flush for the black waste holding tank. A separate hose from the white hose should be used here, and connected only when servicing the black tank.
