Usually located in the Service Bay where the water comes into the coach. That's where mine is located in my Monaco.

If you are talking about the tank fill valve it should be in the wet bay usually near the city water inlet. It should be in the "fill" position only when filling the fresh tank.

Then there is a valve on mine near the water pump that should be open to allow the pump to pull water from the tank. This valve is probably located near the suction hose used for winterization. You need to have the valve from the pump to the tank open and the valve from the pump to the suction hose closed. Now you can use either city water if you are hooked up, or if not, by switching on the water pump. I hope this helps.

Your water compartment will look like mine shown below.

Do you see the valve that is in the horizontal position to the left of the "Sewage Rinse" connector. It is in "City Water" mode. If you rotate that valve, you will fill your fresh water tank.

Hope that helps.
