And your KW1 housing seems to be on backwards. There's a big green arrow on the label, at least on mine, that should point at the spike hanging down from the upper part of the housing. You have to have the label nearly opposite that before you push it up and turn to tighten. Maybe that's why so many people's unscrew themselves and flood their camper.

Water pump was bad. I had to remove the access panel to gain access to the pump. I pulled the intake line off and connect a regular faucet hose for a kitchen sink and fed it into a gallon jug of water and nothing. Last thing I checked was the voltage to make sure they didn't wire it backwards. Luckily I had a spare pump from my last RV, pulled the new pump out, installed the old one and I had water in about 5 seconds.

Called RV nation today and they are drop shipping me a new pump direct from the manufacturer and mailing me an RMA and shipping label to ship this one back to them. I leave Tuesday and will be boon docking for 6 days so I wish I had tested this sooner but at least I'm operational now. Old pump is a little louder and little less flow but that's a minor issue.

Also, on the water filter, there are tabs on both sides. The cover can go on 2 ways 180 degrees out. However, that picture was taken before the filter was installed so the sticker is on this side now.

That valve is from the fresh tank. You have to close it to get suction on the antifreeze line. Seems to be the opposite of most campers. I do not have a valve on the antifreeze line, just a cap.
