Pump

Two questions/problems in one weekend.

On the wall there is a little box that has all the tanks listed, you can push the button and it lights up to show you how full/empty it is.

At the bottom of those buttons, there is a switch with the lable "Pump" on it. What is this for? After reading some posts on here, I think this is a water pump that I do not need to use because we are hooked directly up to water and sewer. Correct?

The manuals that came with my new trailer are VERY lacking in helpful information!

You are correct.You only need it on when you are using water out of your fresh water tank.

You are correct. The manuals are pretty poor.

Could be they're afraid to print any instructions and run the risk of being sued when someone misinterprets the instructions. They can't be blamed if they didn't give the instructions. Thankfully they do advise of the cautions though.
The component manufacturers owners manual are very good though. That's providing they include them at the time of delivery, but they are on-line in PDF form.

I recently did some upgrades to my pump storage area and don't have a noise problem any more. Check out the Mods & Upgrades section and look for "pump storage area" and you'll see what can be done to make it purr like a kitten!
