Dumb question.
On the gravity fill. Your going to be carrying the water to it. So what difference does it make where it is?

Not personally carrying water anywhere.I drive to the water.On the gravity fill on the wrong side comment....I like to dump and fill at the same time.Had to turn around to fill with the old Winnie.

I heard that some RV manufactures intentionally placed the gravity fill on the opposite side because people who are not paying attention, accidentally add gas into the fresh water fill. I can see that happening if driving hard and long to make time.

Our fresh water fill is on the right side, opposite the waste and gas. It's no problem using our Walmart-bought 25 foot RV water hose. I never considered it an inconvenience.

This. At least my Jayco Redhawk 22J has this.

There is just one entrance for water, where the city water fill is. Inside the rear compartment are 2 "switches". Each one has 3 positions. Depending on the source of water, the valves are set to different settings. I have several choices. 1) city water, 2) fresh water tank fill, 3) country fill (for pumping water from say 5 gallon containers to the water tank), 4) normal (using the water in the fresh water tank), 5) winterize, 6) sanitize.

I assume you looked around on the exterior and didn't find a fill hole?

If you don't: You could stop by the hardware store and pick up a garden hose end fitting. It would only take a minute or two to put it on, fill up and then 30 seconds to pull it off. Just have the fitting and a screwdriver handy by the front seat when you pull in.
How do you by pass the check valve to allow water to flow in?


Same way when you use a standard hose at a regular tap. Might be a valve or valves you switch over.

I doubt they put in a fresh water tank and there is no way to fill it.

so you are saving they have a tap with no threads for a hose? and you want to fill thru a gravity fill? you need a water thief or water bandit that pushes over the faucet and your potable water hose screws onto it. then fill your tank.

It appears that the OP has left the conversation, I hope not dehydrated somewhere.
