I can't even gravity fill through the hose. Any idea what I am doing wrong? I'm a newbie with this class C. Have experience with TT's.
Hook the fill hose up to the city water and set it to country fill. (Or local fill) make sure the pump is running and put your thumb over the bottom of the hose to see if there is any suction. If not check other positions to see which one provides suction and get a 5 gallon bucket from your home improvement store and show it to your wife and explain that this is for water for the camper and not to use it for mixing potting soil in. Fill it and flush away...
