Using water during drive?

I have a georgetown 351... How do u use the water as u are driving?
I've tried the water pump... Seems to work with the generator, does it work without the genny?

Also, with dish network satellite... Do u plug into the back, storage Area of the RV, and then plug in the dish box to the front of the RV in the cabinet? And can you view dish on all of the TVs or only one TV?

Unless you are on shore power the water pump will only work with the generator running. So if you need to use water while driving you will need to run the generator.

My water pump and yours should be 12v, it works without the Genny being on or Shore power, as long as the WP switch is in the on position and there is water in the fresh tank.

Yes, if you put the Dish antenna in the connection in the back, and hook the receiver to the splitter, you can watch dish on All the TV's, but it will be the same programming at once (all the TV's will show the same thing).

Sounds as if your unit needs a New Batt! Pumps run off (12V)! Youroo!!

How old is your 351?

the Pump would be powered by the House batteries, under the steps or in the 1st storage compartment, depending on how yours is configured. I would get them checked by a mechanic to see if they are putting out the right amount of voltage.

We just put a few gallon jugs of water in the bathroom to fill and flush the toilet while en route. Not sure what else we would use water for, other than dishes, but we try to use disposable plates for our travel meals. We do keep cold water in the fridge for drinking.

How do you wash your hands after you flush? Seems like it would be a lot easier to put 5-10 gallons of water in the onboard fresh water storage.
