Plumbing Lines

I took a picture of my plumbing near the pump and am trying to figure out what and where the water lines go. Since they donít provide a diagram and I canít see where the lines go throughout the camper, I am guessing here. Do you agree or disagree with what I have so far?

John,
I believe your city water in is the hose going to your hose coming in from fw tank that you have a question mark by.

pump

A pump has a suction and a discharge. usually you cannot run the flow backwards through a pump. So I think the dark blue line goes to the waterheater and the other to cold on faucets. One side of the pump is intake the other side is discharge.

I agree with turbo. City water arrow should point to the line with the question mark and connects up with the line marked from tank. I believe the black thing where the two meet is a two way valve that pulls water from the tank if there isn't any pressure from city water. The outlet of the filter, is the blue line that feeds the cold water to sinks, etc. and the other white line feeds the water heater..

So here is the updated image. The blue line is where the water filter was. You can see the two mounting holes in the aluminum above it. If this drawing is correct then FR only filtered the cold water?

Hey I am not buying the ? is City water in.That is the Suction side of the Pump. I would more believe it to be A/F inlet.The other hose is F/W tank coming to the Suction side of the Pump. Youroo!!

Ok. Now I'm confused. As I look at it further I'm not sure what you have. Did you take out the water filter? On my trailer I have a single line from the tank to the inlet of the pump. On the outlet side I have the outlet of the pump feeding a two way valve and also the hose from city water which is filtered. If there is pressure from city water the valve pulls from there. No city water, I turn on the pump and it pulls from the tank and closes off the feed from the city inlet. The valve feeds the cold water faucets and the hot water heater.

Here is a picture before the filter was removed. The filter simply was installed in the blue line I have now.

I believe that you have everything listed correct in the second pic. the filter only filtered the water going to the sinks. The hot water heater supply did not run through the filter. Just used the metal screen in front of pump to catch the big hunks.
