Water tank fill...where is this valve?

I'm attempting to fill my water tank from city source for the first time. The manual says the tank fill valve is in the utility bay and is labeled "tank fill/normal" or something like that. I can't find any valve at all, labeled or not, that will allow me to fill the tank. I also looked in the water pump bay as well, no cigar there either. What am I missing?

what is behind the panel where the city water hookup is?
You also have a manual fill valve on the passenger side of the rig, right next to the furnace panel, behind a locked door.

I stuck my phone back there and didn't see anything of significance.

Yes, I'm aware of the manual fill.

I had a Terra LX 32K. The manual says what you noted, but the valve doesn't exist where you hook up to city water...

The water tank fill is by the entry door. Open the little door with your key, open the white cap and fill with your hose. That is all these Fleetwood's had for water tank filling.

No idea why they couldn't take that paragraph out of the manual since they failed to put in the valve in the wet bay...

At the least, they could have added "if equipped" to the fill valve instructions.
