Newbie with a bathroom question


We are new to RV'ing. We are traveling in a 2014 Fleetwood Bounder Classic. I am so happy to find this site. So far we are learning that we need to take things as they come and problem solve together. We have managed to get ourselves and our three dogs 500+ miles from home, set up and warm (the first night was cold as we didn't get the heater turned on.) Silly us. I have a question that I hope someone knows the answer to because I can't find it in the owners manual. In the bathroom there is a switch. This switch can be either on pump or water. We are in a park all hooked up. What should this switch be set to? There is another switch that is either off or toilet and we have that one on toilet.

Any direction is appreciated.

Thank you,

Welcome to the forum. Not sure about your switches. If you have tried both positions without anything changing, then it shouldn't matter. Sounds like the pump switch would be for using the fresh water tank and water would be city connection, but that is a guess on my part. Not sure about toilet

I think the label means "Water Pump" and it's most likely just on and off. Verify by turning off the CG water, open a faucet and turn the switch on. You should get water from the faucet. Turn the faucet off and listen. The pump will be running (makes a purring noise), then it will slow down and stop.

If this is what happens then when you're hooked up to the campground water, just turn it off.

My switch in the bathroom turns the water pump on when not connected to a water supply while parked. There should be another switch doing the same thing somewhere up front. The switch will pump water to both faucets as well as the toilet bowl.

Turn it on when you want water pressure when not hooked to a water supply, I leave mine off while traveling if water is not needed just in case I develop a leak.

Thank you

Thank you all for the replies. I think you are right about the city water. I have an email out to the manufacturer to see if I can get more information.

If you are connected to city water and hear the water pump running when you open a faucet or flush, turn off the pump switch. You should still have water flowing as the city water is providing.
