Looking for the city water hook up, or bypass valve. Hose connected to what we thought was the city water hook up, but this is filling the holding tank. When hose is on, water comes out of faucets, however when hose is off, we have to push water pump button (either on kitchen counter or bathroom wall) and then turn off after using water. Is there a different hook up for city water, or is there a bypass valve so that water comes directly from city water without having to manually turn on the pump!? The manual is very vague, and i'm not sure if we have city water inlet or a manual bypass valve. Help!

inside the water tank compartment next to the pump is a valve, rotate it 90 degrees then you should have water pressure from the city line when hooked up. There is only one valve that turns 90 degrees the other 3 pull up to open and they are used to drain all the water from the hot, cold and water tank.

We also are trying to find the city water hook up so we don't need holding tank. Nobody can find it that have looked on our 1993 Bounder. I think I did read in manual that it was an optional feature. Has anybody converted their LP mounted tank to a smaller outside container for easier fill up? Just curious if it can even be done as we don't want to have to pull out of our spot to fill tank.

My bounder has the city/park hook ups in the compartment with the grey/black tank valves. Mine is an 89

Yes my 89 is converted, the kit camcorder 59123 lp tee with hoses is available on amazon, it hooks up at the original lp lines/tank. The kit allows you to use the main tank, a lp bottle (20lb), and also has an extra fitting & hose for an lp grill or camp stove, so you don't need to drag around a bunch of lp tanks

I have a 2004 32w bounder. Having the same problem trying to use the city water hook-up. There is one control in the rear black/grey water compartment that is labeled normal and by-pass. Next to the water heater on the opposite side of the coach is a single valve also marked normal and by-pass. Would I turn both valves to by-pass in order to use city water. When I use coach water I have both valves turned to normal. The manual only states to turn on the rv park/city water supply,(which there is no label indicating this).
