Rockwood High Wall W2518G

Recently purchased 2005 Rockwood High Wall HW2518G pop up. No manual, can't find any videos or brochures on various on/off switches. I've figured out the light switch(yay). What is the on/off switch for on the bottom left hand side? Near the breaker box? I hear a motor start when this is turned on. Not sure what it is doing? I won't even get into other questions I have. Thanks

sounds like that is your water pump to pull water from your fresh water tank into your water lines (for when you are not hooked up to city water).

Thank you! That makes sense. I've really got to find a dealer and ask questions. I was lucky to get it set up without breaking things. Don't think heat or water heater works either. Seems like they both want to start but turn themselves off. I am guessing they both run off the propane. Not sure if there would be some on/off switch for propane besides just turning knobs on propane tanks?

Yes, they run off propane. You may have to bleed the air out of the lines before those will run, the trick there is to light the stove. Once you have a burner on the stove lit, it will be easier to start the water heater and the furnace.

Make sure the hot water tank is full of water before you start it up. Yes both run off of propane, water heater should work off both elec. and propane. Furnace uses 12 volts to run fan part of the furnace.

JPBar. You brought bring up some good points too.
As a side note, the water heater may be propane only as was the case with my 2010 pup, it had a propane only water heater.
