The port toward the front that say's " Fresh Water " does not accommodate a water hose screw on type connection.
So my question is this: When do you use the tank that says "Fresh Water " vs connecting a hose to the port that say's " City Water Connection "
Sorry if this is basic, but I'm new to this RVing' thing and during the PDI I remember them pointing the connections out but not really explaining when a where to use them.
I wonder if you are talking about the Surveyor 220? In any case, we use the city water connection any time it is available. Be sure to use a hose designated for potable water and not just any old garden hose. And use a pressure regulator on the faucet end to protect your hose and the trailer's plumbing.
As for the fresh water tank, we use a funnel to put a few gallons of water in it to use for flushing the toilet - via the water pump - while on the road with city water not available. You won't need to have the water pump turned on if you're hooked to city water.
We don't use the fresh water tank for anything else, but those who dry camp do. Depends on what your needs and preferences are.
