unwinterizing
« on: March 04, 2018, 07:02:21 PM »
97 sundancer Class C

On the road, got water in the fresh water tank. Put in the water heater plug and turned on the pump...

No water.  Not sure what I am missing..

Do you have a valve which needed to be opened in order to fill the fresh water tank when hooked up to shore power? If you do, make sure it is turned off. If it's open, you are just cycling water right back to the water tank.

I would look for a valve that I mentioned.  Did you have any water coming out from under the RV?
