Is my water working correctly?

Help! I have a 2010 silverback 30wre which I just picked up last week and am wondering how the water valves are supposed to be set up for proper water flow when not in winterized setting. Of course it was not explained by my dealer as they were not familiar with my unit? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The hot and cold water valves top left and center left should be open for the water heater to fill and work. The valve in between should be closed. The lower valve should be open only when filling the onboard water tank. The anti freeze s/o valve is closed and only used when winterizing.

Inline with the plumbing line is open, perpendicular is closed. As shown all valves are closed.

Sorry, just thought of another question. When would I ever shut off the hot water, cold water or water heater valves? Do I do that during winterizing and open the antifreeze valve?

During winterizing you close the hot and cold to the heater, and open the bypass valve in between. Make sure you turn off the little black switch located on the front of the heater. Drain the water heater by removing the anode and lifting the lever on the overpressure valve. You then have the option of using compressed air to blow out all the lines (after opening the low point drains) or sucking in antifreeze with the other valve and your on board water pump. HTH

Do you have to do anything to "pump" water from tank to the taps????

Yes I figured that out the hard way. Turned on the water pump inside and got nothing. Then turned the valve and magic - water
