Title: Water tank location on 94 American Dream 38J
Post by: Powdercoatingmark on September 23, 2017, 05:41:18 PM
I have a 94 Fleetwood American Dream 38J.

I have the manuals, which I have read thoroughly, but cannot find where the fill cap is to fill up the fresh water tank.

Any help would be great!

Thanks,

Mark in Ozark, MO

Welcome!!!

I can't tell where the tank is located in this case but...

There could be 1 or 2 ways to fill that tank, some coaches have both, others have one or the other.

Gravity fill: Usually a small door (6"x 6") on the side of the coach at about chest level, opening it will reveal a capped inlet to insert a hose and fill the tank. The door often has a lock on it.

Fill from city water connection: Connect a hose to the city water connection and then hunt for a valve, skillfully hidden in some cases, that should be marked "Tank Fill"  and "Use" (or something similar), operate it to the fill position and turn on the water. Once the tank has been filled return the valve to the Use position. (Don't forget this last step!!!!)

I think I figured it out. It was the cap that covers the water inlet.

Thanks !
