Is the fresh water tank is full?

We have a new ROO 21SS and we are taking her out for a shakedown trip this weekend. How do you know when the fresh water tank is full? Will the water just start pouring out of the inlet while filling?

Yep. Or you can look at the indicator lights inside, but they won't be nearly as accurate as seeing water coming out of the inlet instead of going in.

They give you a general idea of tank levels... But sloshing, flushing, etc..., etc..., can really affect the readings.

The accuracy problem folks complain about is normally on the waste tanks, especially black water, as crud can cause them to give false readings if it builds up.

If youíre right there, you will quickly become familiar with the noise change just before it overflows

And if you want to be sure it has every drop it can take, let it sit for a minute then turn the water on at a low rate until it overflows again.

Tip... If truely boondocking and not having access to a water hook up, hook up the hose to your city water inlet befor or after filling your fresh water tank. Turn it ON and open a hot and a cold faucet in the TT until water flows thru steadily. What this is doing is purging the air out of the system which aids in pump priming... And also fills your 6 gallon hot water tank ahead in stead of pumping water from your fresh tank. Allows you to carry another 6 gallons of water.


i personally dont fill my water tanks bfor traveling unless I know I have no water source where I am going.

Another issue.
