If you are using an external filter at the CG connection, especially if it is a brand new filter, always flush the loose charcoal that is in the filter before connecting to camper.

I always flush my hose, filter, regulator just in case something has crawled into the hose or filter while in storage. Again, you never know if a small mouse has crawled in to the hose!!

When I break camp and disconnect the hose, I drain the hose, coil it up, SCREW THE TWO ENDS TOGETHER , this will help insure nothing can crawl into your hose (roaches, mouse, scorpion) while stored!

Good luck
Great suggestions! After encountering a bit of charcoal water after connecting a new filter I learned to flush it out before connecting it to the trailer.

I just bought a new travel trailer. i have a question about the water. When you fill your tt up at a camp site that has water do you have to leave the pump running all the time to get water out or do you just run it for water pressure.

You don't fill your camper up at a camp ground that has water available.
You instead hook up to the city water connection and when you do have a city water connection you don't use the pump.

Only time you use water pump is when you do fill up you fw tank and go camping where there's no water available.

Is it a lighted switch ?
Or is there a light next to it?

Please be reminded not to turn wh switch on unless wh tank is full of water.
