Water Tank Fill Method '99 Pace Arrow

I have a friend who recently purchased a 99 Pace Arrow 34N. He drained the fresh water tanks last week due to the freezing weather. Now he can't refill the tanks. He is currently staying in an RV park and using shore water which works fine but wants to travel soon. My GBM uses the same valve for both and turns to the left to fill the tanks and then to the right for shore water. His doesn't seem to work that way. Can one of you Pace Arrow owners enlighten us on how to fill the tanks.

Thanks in advance.

Depending o how cold it got the check valve that keeps water from back flowing may have been damaged, if that's the case its a easy fix. Good luck and move to Florida, it was 27 degrees the night before last but will be 85 on Sunday.

Can't he open the fresh water cap and simply fill the tank? This would eliminate the bypass valve.

There should be a small valve around the water pump that could be turned to fill the tank from the city water feed.

Look at the water tank. There is a valve that can be opened and allow water to bypass the pump and go straight to the water tank. (usually this valve is within a foot of the water tank.)When using this valve, make sure you stay right there while filling. You can over pressure the water tank if left on too long. On my 99 Pace it is the same valve that drains the tanks. (You have to open the valve and a second drain valve) On other models the tank has only one drain valve. These are usually large red handle valves that directly drain the tank. They still have the fill valve that goes directly into the tank.

On my 2002 PA there is a gravity fill on the right side of the coach behind a small locked hatch door. I always just us this. Stick a hose in it and filler up.
