I keep the 325 in a pole barn when we are not camping. I hook up power and water open the slides etc. as soon as we get back from a trip. Yesterday I go outside and I notice water dripping from the opening where the hose and cable go in, there is a nice sized puddle. So I figure my hose connection must be dripping (we have a few days of much cooler weather). I go in the house get my keys and and unlock the basement door. The water is not coming from the hose but, dripping out of the fresh water filler inlet. I know there was only about 1/4 of a tank of water in the fresh tank I keep that much in it just in case we need it while traveling. All I can think of is that maybe there is a bad check valve or something like that is allow the house water to bypass back through the pump. I use one of those little camco regulators and the pressure from the pressure from the house is not that high. Has anyone else had this happen? If so, what was the fix?

am curious to hear the answers to your question Rick V. Am also curious why you connect the water while the trailer is being stored. Another question we have on the double wide fridge is- has anyone had trouble with the latches not holding while traveling? We have started duct taping ours while on the road.

We keep the 5ver in a pole barn and once we get home extend the slides and basically set everything up even the satellite dish, just like we are camping. I have power out there too. The DW likes to wait until we get home to clean inside and usually needs some water. We will sometimes just go hang out and even spend the night n the camper we call it back yard camping. I have never had a problem with the fridge door opening while traveling.

That is great thing about having your trailer at home- ours is in storage unit- so we clean before coming home. Glad you haven't had fridge door problems- hope your water problem is easy to fix.

After checking around and reading some other threads I think my problem is resolved. I turned off the House water supply and ran the pump for a few minutes. I turned the house water back on and I have been checking the fresh water gauge for a few days it seems to stay the same.

Howdy, new to forums and our 2014 325RES. Have a couple questions. There is an on/off switch on the first step leading up to the bedroom. I haven't been able to determine what it does, anyone know? Also, has anyone inverted the blinds on the big windows on the slide out?

When you return home to a dark trailer at night flip the switch on to have lights. Don't have to hunt around in the dark.

Not sure why you want to do this?

I think it would be nice to have the option of either top down or bottom up movement on the blinds too! Especially on those long atrium windows 👍
