water system diagram

I have a FR 382. I am looking of a diagram of the water system. It looks like I have two fresh water tanks, one fore and one aft of the rear axle, both have drain lines. The tank fore of the axle is filled from the city water inlet, the rear is filed thru the regular inlet. How do these work and do they work separately or together?

I'm following this one. I have never heard of 2 FW tanks. Always willing to learn. Seems you would need two Pumps.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant

I find it odd too that it would have two fresh water tanks but I won't say you don't.
It is even more odd they would be filled differently. One by city water and one gravity fill.

Are you thinking you have two because you see two drain lines underneath? Maybe one is one of the low point drains.

Are you the original owner? Maybe someone added one?

if you have a toy-hauler, are you sure that 'extra' tank is not a FUEL tank?

also, what is a 'regular inlet'?

after looking at the SPECS, it may have a 158gal Fresh Water system, which IS probably two different fresh water tanks... but that's a new one for me!

Yes, there are two drain lines. I can see the fore tank fill when I use the city fill, but I don.t see anything in the aft tank. I know when I use the rv fill, the rear tank fills, I've left the drain valve open when I hooked up the water line. The drain line runs down thru the compartment that houses the pump. I can see the line that runs from the fill compartment, driver's side, across the motor home to the other side. If there is no tank there, then where does the water go to and drain from?

VERY common to have two tanks in toy haulers (Attitude is one that I know of). They both fill from the one fill tube, there's an equalizer line between them so only one pump is needed and one fill, they work in parallel.

Sorry, I didn't associate the model number listed as a toy hauler.
The OP's signature says they have a Georgetown.
