      Lyla and Bill January 26, 2021 Do you have a winterizing hose and valve, if you do you can use the on-board pump to transfer water from a portable container into your fresh water tank. set the winterize valve to "winterize" and the supply valve to "city", you are good to go.

        jdzions February 10, 2021 Bilge pumps aren't rated for potable water; they might contaminate your tank with lubricants or other foreign matter. If you're using a pump, it must be rated for potable water.
