city water feeds the line directly; fresh water feeds the tank and the water is then circulated into the lines when you use your on board pump.

The city water connection is usually the direct hose connection for sites with a water hookup, fresh water is usually a gravity fed straight to your FW holding tank. Hope this helps.

Make darn well sure the you have a water pressure regulator on your hose between the city water faucet and your city water inlet connection!!! Otherwise, many campgrounds that have water connections have pressure that can be around 100psi. Anything over 50psi for an RV is pushing it and may cause your plastic flex pipe(s) to burst.

You can find cheap yet fully functional water pressure valves at any RV parts store or camping world!

Honestly I've never heard the two separated before. There is usually only ONE water hook up and it had BETTER be fresh (Potable). It IS often furnished by a "city" or municipality of some sort but that isn't a distinction on your RV as to where it originated from.

Put the pressure regulator on the faucet and then your hose.

Our campground has soo much pressure it causes the white hose to swell.

Fresh and city water:

TTs have two water hook ups. One, you attach a hose to and leave it on for continuous water.

The other is a little door, you run water into it like filling a car's gas tank.
People that camp without hook ups, use this tank. When you run out of water then you have to fill the tank again. This water is circulated through out your RV water system by the water pump.

City water, you don't use the water pump. The water is by-passed. The pressure of the water coming from the faucet to your RV circulates the water.
