Question Cannot find city water hookup

I am working on an '84 31ft Sovereign, and I cannot get the water pump to work when the tank is full. Even more frustrating is that I cannot for the life of me find the inlet to hook up to city water. It's after midnight right now, but I will get some pictures on here once I have some daylight.

Look for a water strainer in the line that comes from the fresh water tank and goes to the pump. If you find one, take the clear cap off and pour a cup or so of water in the strainer and replace the cap. Also make sure the o ring sealing the cap is good. The little bit of water sometimes help prime the pump if its been sitting for a while.

Under the rear bumper storage area street-side? We had a 1985 25' Sovereign back a while.

Do you have the owner's manual? It should tell you. A copy is available online if needed . . . please advise. The next thread in this sub-forum has leads on manuals BTW: https://www.airforums.com/forums/f21...ual-77878.html

Welcome to the forum!

Good luck,
