The best thing you can do for yourself is to learn all the quirks of your camper. Chase those hoses and electrical lines. They are probably exposed for the most part. Older campers have a history of modifications without documentation.

I had to do some checking on this one. I found this statement in another forum: "A common water pump in many Popups is the manual pump but if you push down on it it will run the city water but if you pump it pumps the water." There was also a mention of two-way pumps in this thread: Hand pumps anyone?. I learned something!

Looks like U-Haul may use one of that type, but I'm still hoping for a U-Haul owner to clarify how the U-Haul hand pump works. Looking at your photos and other CT13s it looks like yours is OEM or an identical replacement.

You will want two devices between your city water connection and whatever comes out of the spigot at a campground: (1) a pressure regulator, so you don't damage lines and fittings with too-high pressure, and (2) as mentioned, a filter, mostly so you don't get sediment in your plumbing.

We removed the water tank, faucet, and all lines from our Uhaul so can't comment on just how it works. Those old water tanks can get nasty inside so we decided we didn't want it. However we do like the plumbing in our Casita, city water, hot and cold faucets, and flush toilet.
