Water into the Coach

This may be a silly question.............I am trying to figure out the flow of fresh water into our '20 Ventana. Is this correct.......The water comes from the campground facet to the hose (on the reel), then the water goes from the reel through the pressure gauge (to the right of the reel), then to the filter, then to the fresh water tank. I know if I take the water bay white cover off I would be able to see all of the lines. But, honestly I am trying to avoid that at this time.
Thanks for the help.

You are correct. The pressure gauge must be after market, not standard.

There is no pressure gauge installed.
I don’t see any reason to ever take off that white panel unless you have to fix a leak.

The OP said

"then the water goes from the reel through the pressure gauge (to the right of the reel), then to the filter,"

So someone put it on at a later time.

I think the more you know about the coach the better, so taking off that panel might be a good idea in my opinion, as long as it comes off easily.

That brass inline item that you're calling a pressure gauge is a back flow device installed on all Newmars.

You need to install a pressure gauge on your hose end or permanent one in the wet bay, just after that inline backflow valve. Here is where I installed mine. An adjustable 3/4" gauge is a good choice. They're available at the Water Filter Store.

Thanks Don. It is the back flow device. I use a regulator at the faucet. I am in the process of determining additional filter system and needed to be clear in the flow of water. Since I posted I have found and read some threads by 007. Again thanks for the assistance.

I use a high flow inline stainless steal pressure regulator as well as a water filter at the faucet. I used to have an adjustable pressure regulator but one morning it started shooting a jet of water where the brass seams were welded. No cold temperatures, falls or hard bangs. It would be simpler than plumbing it in to exchange it if there is a malfunction.
I really like the set up you have in your wet bay Don. I am working on getting a Sanicon installed.

You control the water flow to tank by your filling valve to tank for filling, during normal flow it goes through your pipes to facets and WH, for hot water.
Some of the old QT'S links will have the panel removed pictures at end of links with MOD's in them.
