Water Service

Ok, on the water service panel on the outside of the RV, there is a hookup for a normal hose fitting the there is a larger plastic hookup with a cap on it. What's this for? Thx

The large cap is for filling the fresh water tank.

So the hose hookup is bypassing the water tank and supplying H2O to the RV. Ok, that makes sense. Sorry, kinda a stupid question but I am a newbie! Thx

On my unit I have one hose connection for fresh water supply and one for black tank flush. I can fill my fresh water tank through the fresh water connection by turning a bypass valve.

Ditto... and I use a brown hose for the backflush...

I use a clear hose for the flusher.

Many RV's have two ways to fill the on-board fresh water tank

One is via the regular "City Water" inlet (hose coupling) via a valve that is often labeled "Quick Fill" or some such.

The other is to pour water in via a "Gravity Feed" This is a larger (like 1.25 inch) port with a cap on it, often under a locked door.

Oh yes! I hope everyone knows to not use the same hose they use for backwashing also for their fresh water!
