If water can't get in, the check valve is installed backward...

Since I am looking at putting some kind of water inlet valve/plug into the top of my potable water tank, can I just install a gravity fill connection like the one in post #5 of this thread and seal it good with silicone sealer or synthetic plumber's putty without the oil in it? Thanks.....

If it's got a fresh water tank from factory, it's got a fill already there...

It's labeled "anti freeze inlet". Is that where I put the water to fill it last year?

You haven't responded concerning whether you have a gravity fill connection or not. It will look like the one in post 5, but is probably black. When you remove the cover, there will be no thread for a hose fitting. There will be a small meshed hole on the side for the vent. This is what you are expected to use to fill. You will need to fill it slowly. Stick the end of your hose into the hole and fill slowly.

I'll take pictures if I don't figure it out first in the AM.

No gravity fill. I need to write things down when I learn them!

If you have no gravity fill, then you should have a valve from the city water connection that bypasses the water pump and goes to the FW tank.

But I'm very surprised if you don't have a gravity fill. My 2016 Mini Lite has one. Since folks are more likely to boondock in your TT than mine, I'd expect a gravity fill.

It has to have a gravity fill.
All Roo/Shamrocks have one.
