Newbie RVer's

Hi! My husband and I are very new to the rv community. We purchased our first class A MH very recently. The 97' Newmar Mountain Aire. I came across this site and am so very glad I joined. We have found so much helpful information here it's wonderful. Our goal is to be full-timers once we get to figure out all the quirks.

We are currently trying to prep the MH to live in knowing the winter season in Northern P.A. could be a bit harsh. That brings me to a question I would like to ask..I am having a problem filling up my water tank. Found the city water inlet was not working properly so we installed a manual valve. Hooked up the water hose and heard the water filling up the hot water heater. Then nothing. No water was going into the tanks?? While hooked up to the water hose we do have pressure and water coming out of the faucets but cannot leave the hose in. Just looking to fill the those tanks. Any thoughts on why they are not filling?

Thanks a million!

Fairly new myself, but I ran into a similar problem with my older RV. There was a diverter valve in the cabinetry inside, directing water either to the tank or to stay on "city" pressure.
This Post has some great tips:

Welcome! You will be glad you joined this forum. Great people with alot of knowledge also. I can't answer your question, but if you post this on the manufacturer thread further down the page, you will get more response as everyone does not look at the New Member thread. Good luck and Happy Travels.
