Water Valve on 2012 Salem Hemisphere 346QBUD

Hello I recently purchased a 2012 Salem Hemisphere 346QBUD and I am wondering what the white valve in the following attachment is for. Do I need to have this valve open when I am out camping. I am new to rv's could someone please let me know. I know that the red valve above it is for bypassing the hot water tank. It is the other valve I am not sure what it is for. The unit is still winterized and the valve is closed. I want to get it ready for summer soon, so I will be adding water to the system once I have water in should the lower white valve be open or closed.

Couldn't help but notice that you have a Salem too. Salems are great trailers. Wish I knew more about that handle in question but 'm sure someone will drop by and answer your questions.

Take care,

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

water valvle

I believe that is the fresh water tank valve. In order to 'load' the camper with fresh water, a hose must be hooked up to the fresh water connection and the valve opened. That will allow the tank to be filled.

If you're using a city water connection, I.e. a water spigot provided by your campground, leave the valve closed and connect the hose to the city water connection.

Good luck!
