New to Motorhome Living and quirks

Hi! My wife and I have been RVing for 20 plus years and finally took the plunge into a used motorhome last Fall. So far, we have had to replace the ac control panel and have made a user error with our awning, so itís being replaced as I type this. Turns out, we know very little about our motorhome and itís quirks, because we are having another plumbing issue (had to hire a mobile rv repairman, who replaced a backflow check valve on the fresh water intake last Fall). Now, we find that our fresh water tank has filled with city water while camped in SC. No idea how we did that!
Anyway, hopefully we can learn how to work on these quirks, ourselves, through this forum.

You're at the right place and welcome. Also, Winnieowners' sister site,, is a good place as well, especially for non-brand specific issues like towing a toad, etc. If you create a habit of perusing new posts every day, you'll learn a lot in a couple of months. Many of the forums have set of "stickies" that contain a lot of good info. Here are some:

You should also set up a signature like mine that lists your year, model, length, etc. You can do so via the User CP tab on the toolbar. That way, responders can be more specific to your rig and you won't have to enter it each time you post.

With respect to your city water fill issue, read your manual, I think you'll find there's a valve setting for filling from city water vs. just using city water (these valves can be confusing). If you don't have the manual, you can download one from Winnebago.

Thank you! I edited our signature with your suggestions and will also look at the other suggested site.

Luckily, we do have the manual. We checked diagrams on line and saw the city fill line. Our mh only has a gravity fill line for the fresh water tank.
