Both the city water and fresh water tank are plumbed to go the same place.....all of your faucets.

Check to see exactly where the drains come out of your tanks. I need to be tongue high, level side to side to completely empty my black tank, and tongue low, street high to completely empty my gray tank.

Water is plumbed to kitchen faucet, bath faucet, inside shower, outside shower (if equipped), water heater, and toilet flush valve. Fresh water tank (exterior fill cap) uses a one way check valve when switching from city water- same plumbing outlets. Randy

Correct.

I travel with a couple of gallons of water to flush the toilet and wash my hands.......I would rather use my own toilet instead of those at rest stops.

If you do fill your fresh tank, be sure to keep it "fresh", by draining it upon returning home. You don't want the water to get stagnant. As I mentioned above, there is a check valve that is designed to prevent water from entering your fresh tank, when hooked up to city water. You must fill the fresh tank manually, at the separate fill cap. Randy

I will share a secret, so DON'T tell anyone!

I open another window in my browser and do a quick Google search and bam! Someone already drew what I want! Then I upload it to Webshots and drop it into my post!

If you type fast enough, folks think you are brilliant!
So lets keep this between us.
