Freshwater system... valve and pump

I tried out the fresh water system today on 1991 excella 29.

with external water pressure, I pushed auto fill. I heard a small
noise and then could faintly hear water noises.
I left it on for awhile and the fresh water fill indicator never
rose above the enitial empty indication.

I assumed the indicator is inaccurate.
I shut the auto fill. I shut off the external water. I turned on the
water pump.
I heard the pump running. Sounds like its under the wardrobe
closet at mid ship.
It never turned off.
I do get some flow at the sink. Not near enough to run the shower.

Ideers?
thanks,
groundhogy

The auto fill option takes hours to work. When working correctly ( which it didnt often) it would allow a small portion of water to flow to the fresh water tank. Once the fresh water tank is at 80% it shuts off. Your best option is to fill your fresh water from your curb side port. Also it doesn't use your water pump to work, Its an electric solenoid in the piping.

I wasnt aware that there was another water input other than the main one.

On mine there is a city water hookup on the roadside and a fresh water fill port on the curbside (its behind a door above the fender)
