Park water question

We are going to be in an RV park in Florida for a couple months. We have never stayed anywhere more than a week at a time, so have gotten by with only using/filling our fresh water tank.
I have all the hosing to utilize the city water hook up from the park we are going to be in, and have filter, ect to use.
My Question is, is there a step needed to use city water vs the fresh water tank. Is there a valve that changes from one to the other, or is it enough just that we won't have the water pump switch on? Poured through the manual and see nothing that indicates this.

On my storm there is nothing to do, just don’t turn the pump on. Only use the pump for tank water.

Yes, leave everything alone. The valve you describe is used only to divert incoming city water to fill the tank. Once the tank is full, that valve is returned to the "city water" position to either use the pump and draw from the tank, or to use city water directly from a spigot.

As mentioned, simply hook up your hose connection, leave the pump OFF, and you will have water flow under pressure from the city service.
