You don't want to take a chance of putting in non potable water which is what a lot if dump stations use.

Camper construction ethic is 'fast, neat, and cheap. And don't stress the neat.' Our camper has the black tank flush connection on the curb side, with dump valves on street side. Very inconvenient. I'm gonna have to see if I can replumb it.

Our fresh water tank is also filled on the curb side. The other utilities, city water hookup, black tank flush, antifreeze inlet, and electric are all on the Street side. I know the water tank is at the back of the camper. I can't think of why it is on the curb side.

I did not realize how lucky I am. All of the water/electric/CTV/dumps are on the same side!

Same here, my last two campers had everything on the same side. City and fresh water fill were on the same panel.

My FW tank fill is curb side, city water inlet backside center of camper, sewer/gray drain street side.

Low point drains are near sewer drains, FW tank overflow and drain are curbside. Mine are all over the place lol

Also seems stupid to put the freshwater fill and city water connection directly above the electrical connector... But I guess it is waterproof.

Mine is on the "opposite" (curb) side also. Never found it to be a problem. But by applying my thinking cap I can tell you that under my camper there are four tanks. Two grays, a black and a fresh water tank, all of which take up space. With the bathroom gray and black tanks being directly under the bathroom and the galley being near the front kitchen, space and most likely weight distribution considerations left room for the fresh tank at the back of the unit. Then there is the fact there is a bedroom slide that comes out of the back road side, so trying to put the fresh fill with the other connections would have basically been impossible to run a large enough pipe/tube to fill the fresh tank via gravity in a concealed fashion. The filler cap, where installed, allows a short filler tube which is concealed by the built in dresser.

As noted earlier it could have been placed on the back. Growing up in the 60's my parents had a Fan trailer that had it's filler located in the back. In those days there were no electric pumps on the water. There was either a hand pump at the sink or, as the case with the Fan, a pressurized tank. I can remember too many times having a bicycle tire pump perched on the rear bumper, pumping up the tank!

As a side note, I have been to dump stations where the potable water is located on the curb side, while the dump and wash water are installed on the road side.
