Those handles should pull/push open and close. Not turn to the side.

It may be a twist lock type spade valve but yes twist to unlock and then pull if it is.

If they are pushed in then yes they are closed.

last question. If the camper is parked on your property , how do you configure where the black water goes and to dispose of it? Where I live you can use gray water on your lawn.

Sewer clean out cap.

Here we are allowed to dump RV waste in the clean out for our home waste.

Remember you really should have THREE tanks: Black water (toilet), Gray water (sinks, shower), and Fresh Water.

It looks like you figured out your grey and black tanks as far as location. A word of experience. Do not leave the valve open when you are connected. Instead, let the tanks fill and empty them as needed, especially the black tank. Always dump the black tank first, then dump the grey. That way you rinse the sewer hose with grey water last. Also, invest in a new sewer line. It sounds like yours has some age, and the last thing you want is for that thing to leak when you are dumping the black tanks. Walmart carries those hoses for a fairly low cost.

As for the fresh water, you have a little work to do. Having previously owned a "vintage" trailer, the following is what I did to prep the fresh water system.

From your very first pictures it looks like the fresh water fill is on the the "street" side or "drivers" side side of the camper in the back. You should also have an inlet that looks like a female hose barb/connection. That hose barb will allow you to run the water off the city/campground water supply. They make drinking water specific hoses (also at walmart) to be able to hook that line up. As far as the fresh water tank, you will need to fill and sanitize the tank and the trailer plumbing before you use it. Mix 1/2 cup of bleach per 10 gallons and add it to the fresh water tank until the tank is full. At this point, you will need to find the inside switch for the fresh water pump (I assume you have an electric pump, assuming you have a shower). Turn it on and then open your faucet. The pump will run to maintain a factory set pressure. Once it hits that pressure it will turn off. So, when you open the faucet or flush a toilet, you will here it run. It will stop a few seconds after you close the faucet. To sanitize the plumbing, run each tap in the trailer until you smell the bleach. I would include the shower and the toilet. Then let it sit for four hours. Then, run it again. On a trailer this old, you may notice some debris running from the taps. If so, run the water until the debris is gone, and then let it sit again. You may need to do this several times and have to refill the fresh water tanks a few times (that also means you will need to be able to dump the black and grey water tanks, as they are going to fill up in this process). Once the water runs clear, drain the fresh water tank and fill it with clean water (you can add a tsp of white vinegar per 10 gallons of water to help get rid of remaining bleach). Run all the taps for a couple of minutes to flush the chlorine/bleach out. Then dump the fresh water again, refill with 5-10 gallons of warer and run the taps one more time. You should not smell any bleach or vinegar. At this point the water system should be clean, safe and ready to use.
