Correct valve position?

Pump and filter under bath cabinet. Wondering as to correct position for normal city water hookup? Top line coming in is antifreeze port, below that is city water. looks like valve switches antifreeze to input of pump or off to wherever. Is the current position correct for pumping water from FW tank and the 90 degree pos only for pumping AF? never had a TT with AF capabilty before. This is a new 2019 Mini-lite 2507. PDI never covered any of this! Thanks for any input--

On the input side of the pump there is a valve for antifreeze or holding tank. Not for city water input.

The valve is in the position to pump water from the FW tank, the position of the handle indicates the flow of the water, it's parallel with the FW tank supply line which means it will pull from the FW tank.

The position of the valve has nothing to do with hooking up to city water (The lower outside outlet) which supplies water directly to the faucets in the trailer. The pump is only used to pump water from the FW tank or AF from the AF port outside the trailer. Similarly, the position of the valve doesn't affect your ability to fill your FW tank from the FW fill port, which is not the same as the city water port.

Your city water input should be teed from the pump output side. When you say city water you do mean shore connected water input?

It is tee'd, left side of the image where the line changes from clear braided to PEX.

I know that. It wasn't for you it was for the OP to chase down.

Thankyou all, I semi-assumed as much, just wanted to be sure. Also, what's your take on these filters, never had an internal before, always used an external on my supply hose. Numerous threads here seem to indicate they can and do leak and break. Worth it or lose it?

I personally don't have a filter in mine and use an external filter, the price of the replacement filters, at least for the one in mine, is nuts and I don't believe the GPM flow rate is very good anyway.

This is what I use - https://www.amazon.com/Camco-Premium.../dp/B00JRDU9LG
