How to put water in a Chaparral 271BHS

Greetings all, I'm new to Coachmen although we've been RVing several years. Just picked up a Chaparral Lite 271BHS. There is not a conventional water inlet on the side of this camper. Only an inlet for a hose. In other words, when camping at a site w/o water hookup, when the tank runs dry, I used to just pour water into the tank from the side opening - this camper doesn't seem to allow that. Any help would be appreciated.

Many thanks,

if you have a FW tank, there has to be an inlet for it. follow the filler tube from the tank and see where it leads.

by the way, you should be posting this question in the Coachmen section, since you're asking about a specific brand's setup. maybe the mods will move it for you.
