Connecting to city water

Rookie here trying to learn as much as possible from the seasoned veterans. When connecting to city water, do you leave the water on? Does it store water somewhere when you first hookup and then you turn it off? Just don't want to leave anything open or closed that shouldn't be. I mostly plan on filling my tank, since I won't be using campgrounds as much but just incase. Thanks for all the people who have been answering my previous questions as we'll- great place to learn!

City water stays on and uses the pressure from the line for your camper (no need to use your pump). Definitely pick up a good pressure regulator so you don't risk blowing out a line somewhere from over-pressure. The fresh water connection is used just to fill your fresh water tank.

Disconnect the hose if you leave camp in hot weather. Sun will heat up the water in the hose and can burst it.
