Still have to head back to the dealer for the items in the previous post, but I found the water pump. Had to remove 4 screws next to the dinette. The nice part is it already has the hose length and valve for winterizing. We dewinterized this past weekend to make sure the pump, water heater, and all plumbing was good, and it was! We're off to our first camping trip in the trailer this weekend over Easter. We're looking forward to getting away for a couple of days and living in luxury compared to what we had prior!

Another question : Under the TV there is the normal cable/antenna connection with the booster switch. I understand how this works, but next to it are two other connectors (coax) labeled Sat 1 and Sat 2. I figure one of them is for the satellite connection on the outside, but what is the second one for?

I have two other coax outlets, one outside ( for placing TV outside) and a second in the bedroom. I thought these are just split off of the main input, but not the case?

Good question. I have also wondered why two Sat jacks inside. I think maybe one is wired to the outside Sat connection and the other is available to be hard wired to a permanent roof mount dish?

The bedroom and outside jack are split off the output to the main TV. Happy Easter and safe travels.

Thanks oldcat, that sounds likely. Had a great first trip this Easter weekend. It was really a good test for the camper, as we went through all stages of weather: wind, rain, clear, sunny, cold, warm, etc.

We learned a tip from our neighbors to pack an electric heater when you have hookup, so you aren't using all your propane on the furnace.

Everything worked great, we cannot wait for our next trip. Thanks again all for your replies!

Electric blanket is nice, too. Have fun. The 220 is a fun camper.
