If you are connected to city water you do not need the water pump on. The water pump is only used for water pumped from the on board water tank. Before you attempt to light off the water heater, be sure there is water in the HWH tank, the water system is pressurized and all of the lines have no air in them. Then light the heater off, and wait about 15 minutes. By then you should have hot water.

There is a thread called Aframe Appliances ove in the AFrames area. rawlus and other aframers contributed info to put together a single PDF with all the user manuals. One of the manuals is for the toilet you have. Here's the link to the document. It might help you with your cassette toilet.

Thx again Ben
you have to light the WH, after you run some water thru it. just turning on the propane, doesn't light the WH. you either have to manually light it or if you have DSI, turn the red toggle switch on. that will auto light the WH, if the propane is turned on at the tank.
it's always good to light the stove burners first to clear the propane line of air.

Ben we had this same problem with the cassette toilet our first time out. You will need to insert the little green funnel that snaps off the tank to fill the fresh water tube. Otherwise, the water will not fill.hope this helps!

You don't need to turn on the water pump........the water conection will have enough pressure. Once you have turned on the water after hooking up your hose from source to camper, go around and turn on all fawcetts, hot and cold to allow air to sink, outside shower and inside shower. It's going to blow air and make all kinds of noise until it runs water through it........DO NOT TURN ON THE WATER PUMP BY THE POWER CENTER. Once you have the water lines clear of air...across from the sink, below the sofa is the turn on switch for the hot water heater......turn it on and the red light will glow until it is ready to fire off by itself...there is nothing more to do. Make sure you turn on your LP on the tanks.
You're going to want to toss the shower heads in the trash and buy two Oxygenics Shower heads......I got mine off of Amazon. It makes a world of difference.

Just for know that there are two water connections right? for constant water supply on the service side of the camper which would be outside behind what will be the kitchen area. The second being a fill tube site for the water tank if you were dry camping and had to carry in your own water......this is located on the front side of camper by the front door and swing out hand rail area......just above the tire.
