plumbing system works ?
They say site water connection will not automatically fill on board fresh water tank......so why do I need an on board tank if I get water only from site connection ?....
Does everything function without water in the holding tank or will nothing work until it's filled ?...then why do I need site connection ?
I'm sure it's all very easy but before I order one I'd like to understand.
Thanx for any help
Most trailers have what is called a City Water connection - this is what you will use when you are at campgrounds that have water hook up - and normally the on board fresh water holding tank will not fill up when you are using the City Water connection.
The Water holding tank is for those times you camp at places that do not have a water hook up. So you bring your own water by filling up the water holding tank. Why do you need a water holding tank? Well for example here in BC there are a number of Provincial campgrounds that do not have water connections at each campsite.
Why have both systems? - water weighs a lot so if you don't need to travel with water in the tanks you will get way better MPG's while towing. Not to mention no need to keep having to fill up a small water holding tank if camping in one spot for days when using City Water connection.
As far as your question as to "Does everything function without water in the holding tank?" Not really clear on what you are asking but Yes water will come out of taps when only connected to City Water and there is no water in the holding tank. And yes water will come out of the taps when the water holding tank has water in it & your not connected to a city water connection - you may have to switch on a 12v water pump though to get the water from the tank - normally supplied with the trailer and there is a small switch someplace in the kitchen area on most trailers that turns it on and off.
