    Trying to find info on the water system of our camper. The next step in learning about our camper . It has a sink with hot and cold faucets but hubby doesn't see a hot water heater. Also size of holding tank and where would it be? When you hook the hose to hookup does that flow directly to faucet or to a holding tank? Any and all info will be welcomed, you can tell know nothing about this. I've tried researching but this site is my go to. Appreciate any info and support for this newbie.

    If you have an outdoor shower you should have a water heater ..... it was an option package.
    The shower would have a 4X8 plastic door on the outside and the water heater would have a much larger 12X12 metal door on the outside.
    Yearlings with a 10' box have 20 gal fresh water tank, A 12 foot box a 23 gal. The water heater would also hold 6 more gallons.
    If you google "2005 Palomino Yearling Sales Brochure" and then look to the lower left corner you can search for 2005.
    Post your findings and we can go thru the whole system together.

    Ok found and read the file, thank you very much. Info was given by sellers didn't match up but basing on diagram and model # 4100 on box plate it's is a 10ft box so that means 20gal tank. Interestingly enough that plate says made 2004 but all paperwork says 2005 from the original purchaser. No outside shower so presume no hot water. So what next to do for water system ? (Then let's talk about heating). Rosie

    Sometimes ........ If there is a 2 hand faucet and no water heater. one side would be for "onboard water". and the other side "city water"

    What do want to use the hot water for ........ so we know how much you need at a time. An old electric coffee urn may do the trick.......

    Heating the PUP or heating water?
    It will be easier to follow and you'll get better answers if you put questions as individual post in individual topics.

    That's what we're planning to use a hot pot or something similar, not fancy people . So now all we do is hook the water hose up to inlet. So there may be two inlets then, one for city water hookup which means direct to sink and the other would pull from tank? Then there should be an outlet for sink gray water also?

    There should be a fitting that will screw onto the male end of a hose that connects to city water (use a RV regulator and inline filter). There should also be a cap you can remove to fill a storage tank if your PUP has one. There should be a grey water drain on your PUP on the outside near the sink location that the female end of a hose will screw onto. On one of our PUPs there is a two handle faucet, but one side connects to city water and the other to the pump that draws from the storage tank. That PUP has no water heater.

    You most likely have a drain on the side of the camper. Should have a larger cap than the water tank fit and the city water connection.

    Alright. If we looked we would have seen the 3 openings which two of them are clearly marked "city water" and "potable water" and the other is the sink drain. So now understand the difference between the two. So unless your remote camping without city water do no need to use the potable water inlet. The previous owner said they never used and we are the 4th owners. Now we will try it. Thanks for now. Have a great day all! Rosie
