2715VS questions again

Fresh water tank questions. My dealer had filled the tank. I'm hooked up to a water connection. Should I drain it? Any harm in leaving it full?

Also, can someone point me in how to fill it in the first place? There are three connections on the side, one is the water connection. I've walked all around it and don't see anything labeled water tank fill.

I read the manual, and nothing unless I am blind (possibility).

The fresh water tank fill is on the opposing side near the bottom right corner of the furnace vent.

I can't speak with absolute certainty, as I don't have a set up like yours, but based on what I've been reading here on the forum:

I believe the newer TTs are coming without the old gravity fill connections. (Gave evil-doers an opportunity to put something in your tank). Your 3 connections are: top - black water tank flush, bottom right - antifreeze (winterizing) connection, bottom left - city water connection. I believe you probably have a valve somewhere in the city water line that you would change to allow the city water to go to the FW tank to fill it.

Do this slowly, though; you don't want to blow up your FW tank!

The fresh water tank fill is on the opposing side near the bottom right corner of the furnace vent.
Looks like I stand corrected. I think what I said is still correct, but doesn't apply to your TT.

Unusual that it's on the curb side, and not on the street side with the city water connection.

Forget the generic owners manual. It's pretty worthless and confuses newbies, because it has no brand/model specific information.
