Is your water connection in the rear by the bed? If so that is probably where it will be. I'm on my 3rd and all three have been under the bed.

That might be it. Unless you have valve system in the water box that will let you fill the tank there some have both, then there will be a door close to where that tank is at should have a lock on it behind it there will be a cap remove it and that will allow you to put the water in the tank

On mine all water goes in through the city water connection. There are a series of valves in the panel just aft of the connection. I set the valves to what I need. So if I just want to belly 5 gallons I take a bucket of water and a fill hose and set it to drain the bucket into the tank if I'm on city water it set the valves to a different position.

Don't forget to flush your tank at least once per year with a vinegar and water solution. DO NOT USE BLEACH. Bleach will take some of the plastic with it and cause the lines to rot prematurely. Just flush well afterward and you will keep your pipes like new for longer.

Sanitizing/fill problem

Davinger mentioned method to fill which my 2000 31'Coachman also instructs to do when sanitizing the system (although says to use bleach). I cannot get the system to suck the water/solution from the bucket. I set the controls to "FILL" position, insert a 4' hose into the bucket, turn on the pump, but nothing happens. 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.

I would look at the pump. In my case there is a plastic strainer on the outlet port mine was filled with gunk and the pump stopped working. I pulled the strainer and cleaned it. Pressure was back and no issues with the pump after cleaning the strainer.

On the newbie with the R Vision (trail lite, most likely, not travel lite) the fresh water tank is off white in color and located typically under the bed, couch or a dinette. There either is a valve to turn to use the city water connection or a small door with a cap on the side of the RV as others mention. Interestingly, R-Vision was part of Monaco; perhaps you can contact them for a manual.
