Abby's Maiden Voyage

My wife and I bought an A122 a couple of weeks ago and took her, straight off the lot, to a campground in N. AZ. We had a great time. This is our first experience hauling anything, and while backing up is always an experience, we managed to spend three great days in fall color.

Like most people on this forum, we have a lot of questions about our new mobile cabin, but for now, we're just excited about the prospects of what's to come.

C U round the forums,

Thanks! For one, what does that switch underneath the sink do?

Glad to meet you. Looks like you're off to a grand start. My 2011 model doesn't have a switch under the sink but from reading around the forum, I think it's the water pump switch. It's in a really inconvenient place in my unit but was evidently relocated to the sink area--where it belongs, IMO.

If your water lines are full, nothing much should happen when you flip the switch. The pump shuts off when there's no outlet for the pressure. There may be a short burp from the pump when you first turn it on as it ensures the lines are full. Always travel with the switch off so that the pump doesn't come on while you're not in a position to notice it. The pump can run dry for a short time without damage, in case that should happen. It will get hot, though, besides sucking your battery down.

I'll let folks who have newer models confirm whether that's the water pump switch or not. Your dealer dropped the ball if he didn't orient you on the switches and valves, the converter, the water heater, the Cool Cat, the furnace, the fridge, and so on. My suggestion is to stop by the dealership and have them give you a thorough orientation.
