Don't know your unit but some come now with only one fresh water inlet and no separate gravity fill inlet. If this is the case, then you will have a valve hidden away somewhere to divert the water to the fresh water tank.

Steve,

I moved your question to pliumbing. You might have better luck here.
Do you have a gravity fill port or a hose connection?

Normally fresh fill is right near city water connection.

Have a look at this video. It seems to be between the two entry doors.

I don't know about you, but my wife always refers me to the instructions. Maybe you should get the book out. I know as guys, we hate to read them, and do so only in dire emergencies.

My manual is very generic as well. The dealer must have put water in the tank to test the water pump. Your best bet is finding the person who set up the trailer for your PDI.
