Just getting back to this thread...I may or may not have a lot more questions soon as I plan to use all my systems this coming week.
One thing I'm wondering now, after "filling" my fresh water tank: how do I know when it's full? In my Bigfoot
, the tank is under the couch, and the way the couch is setup with the slide-out bed, I can only see the water tank through some storage cabinet openings, which happen to be jammed full of all my stuff. There's no (as far as I know) real "access" to the fresh water tank. The seat over it is screwed down.
So do I just fill it until it overflows? I had issues in my last camper with some leaking, if the water was so full that it was all the way up into the fill tube. But if that's the way to do it, that's the way I'll do it...
Is if fine to leave the water pump "on"? Or should I only turn it on when I need to run a faucet?
All my lines are dry. To get water to the hot water heater, do I just turn on the pump, then run the hot water in the faucet? And that will pull water from the tank, to the water heater? So once water comes out of the faucet, the water heater is full?
I bought some non-formaldehyde enzyme packets for the toilet. From what I hear, I just need to run a little water down the toilet, then throw one in. Then it's business as usual, more or less. Dumping will be the scary part...
I could get away with not using my shower or toilet, but I'm down in southern Utah for a couple weeks and figure now's a good time to just go ahead and use everything and start learning how it works.
