I inherited a 1983 Southwind, and trying to determine what's what and what's where. When I hook city water up, the fresh water fill eventually starts overflowing. I've check the rather thin owner's manual and it mentions turning the city water valve on; but not where it is. I would like to use city water hookup as we are in a longer term living arrangement in this vehicle. Anyone can help?
Thanks

Welcome jadefoxx to irv2.
In your water hookup location look for a lever the type you might see on a ball valve shut off.
If you do not see one than look for a stub like on a water faucet. The handle may have been broken off which may make it hard to find. I will link your question to New Member forum where you will get more exposure.

jadefoxx, welcome to iRV2.com. Congratulations on the coach. What model is it? If you do not find the water control valve(s) let us know the model in the Fleetwood Owners forum further down the main forum page. Good luck and keep us posted.
