I did look I really did

ok I did a couple of searches but must not have the right key words, but just where does on turn off the water pump when connected to city water? as we speak we are sitting in a lovely park on the side of mount hood. The goal for today is to try as many systems as we can to make sure every thing really does work. So far so good all major systems seem to work fine. Hooked it up to "city water" but when I turn on the sink the water pump still come on. In my boat there is a switch right by the galley sink to tun it on and off. There are two or three places where the manual tells you to shut off the pump (mostly for long term storage) but never tells you where. I pulled the fuse for the pump just to make sure it does run with city water so there are no major failures. But were is that darn switch or is something amiss with a pressure switch?

ok I am officially the dumb guy. You might get a laugh out of this, whenwe did the walk through the guy Mike point to each switch and told us what it was. We had decided to wait till I got the right tape for my brother labeler before putt permanent labels. So we put up some blue painter masking tape and wrote a number on each one. Then my wife wrote down the number and an explanation of the function of the switch.

Here we are and I am running around testing systems and hence the aforementioned water pump issue. well I cam out sat down wrote the above note. Then said .. well lets get to ding those labels. We started with the 3 by the sliding door ( just one side note Mike got it wrong about the red lighted one), then moved on to the one over the second row chair...... then came the 3 over the sink and I will be a son of a gun if the middle one isnt the water pump. anyway I am now the holder of the dumb guy award.

We've all got a list of stories we could tell . . . if we would! If you're new to RVing you need to watch Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz in, The Long, Long Trailer. Also Robin Williams' movie titled, RV. You'll think you're smart in comparison!

Happy camping!

Look on your monitor panel where you see the lights that tell you how full your grey and black tanks are. One of the buttons on the bottom should be your pump on/off button. I hope! :-)

Not on an Interstate. The monitor panel for the tanks is in the rear curb-side overhead locker, not anywhere convenient. On the other hand, the pump switch is over the galley sink, in a very convenient spot.

And a question for Bennu36 - Is your step lock switch (second one from the sliding side door) upside down like mine, where up=off and down=on?

If you are standing at the sink, look up under the bottom of the cabinet. There are 3 switches and it is the middle switch (hopefully).

That is the way to works on my 2013 Interstate. Not exactly intuitive is it?

This is how ours is set up, and is labeled "pump". It's not as simple as it might seem, is it!

We all have a learning curve, and it really never stops. Always something new.

In my 2010 the water pump button is located above the sink. It's the center of three rocker switches. As SGT Dave said.

Still can't believe AS didn't label all of the switches until about a year ago.
