Getting ready to go!!

Alright!!! Road trip

Sooooo, we are leaving in the morning... everything is packed tight, locked down, ect. Only question? Do the tanks (fresh water tank and others) need to be completely empty? I never learned how to use the water sources when not hooked up to a faucet. And I'm assuming that's what the big tank in the closet and water pump is for lol the last time I turned the water pump on, water went everywhere!!!

Any last suggestions before I pull the plug?

Enjoy the trip!

Are you going to be at a site with full power, "city" water and sewer hookups? If so, you don't need to have your freshwater tank full. If you can fill it closer to your destination, it is nice to have - our site this weekend had 2 water main breaks!

You also don't need to use your water pump if you are on pressurized city water; you only need it when on freshwater. You can use both if the city pressure isn't strong enough.

Why did water go everywhere when you used your pump?
