Preping for 1st camping trip

we are preparing the unit for our first official camping trip. There are 2 city water connectors on the unit 8 inches apart and unmarked. Why are there 2 and which is the one to connect to the water source?

Not sure I've Sean or heard of a reason for two city water connections.
I have to wonder if one is bw flush mislabeled.

I'm guessing one will be your black tank flush, but I can't you tell which. Hook up a water hose and you will be able to find out pretty easy or post what tt you have and someone with the same model should be able to help you.

thinking it was just
going the extra mile -- a good THING someone did
how often do we wish we had another hose bib ??
and did not have to use the little T valves

is this the only site there
or do all the sites have two hose bibs ??

If you use this method to test; BE SURE to crack the bib valve and immediately shut it off. Check inside at a faucet for water pressure.

If you have water pressure at a tap. you have the correct connection.
If no pressure you have connected to the TurboFlush.

FYI, running full pressure water into the TurboFlush with the black tank drain valve closed can burst the tank. It is a warning in the manual.

I have 2 hose connections net to each other as well. One is city water and the other is for anti freeze inlet for winterizing. Both are about 8 inches apart.

Yes you really have three options as to what the inlets are for.

1. City Water
2. Black Tank Flush
3. Antifreeze Winterizing Inlet

Mine has all three, but they are labeled.

It might be helpful to list year, make, and model of your trailer.

Thanks to everyone for the help. The top inlet was for the black water flush even though it was not marked. Haven't had one of those on my previous trailors. Nice feature.
