Question re filling fresh water tank with upper section lowered
When the upper section of our 2307C is lowered, the fresh water tank fill hatch is blocked - been considering adding a fill connection that would permit connecting a hose so the tank could be filled with the top section lowered, then it occurred to me that maybe I'm over-thinking this.
For as long as we've had it, I've worked on the premise that the trailer should be fully levelled with the support jacks down before raising the upper section at all, but maybe I'm being unnecessarily cautious - IF the trailer is on flat ground (e.g. essentially level), can the upper section be safely raised the foot or so necessary to access the fresh tank fill hatch without fully leveling the trailer?
Over the last couple of years we've stayed in a number of state campgrounds that either did not have potable water taps within hose distance of our space or had only one potable water source for an entire facility, which makes filling the fresh tank on arrival problematic. Shouldn't be an issue to pull in, raise the upper section a bit, fill the tank, lower it back down and move, but with others waiting, I'm reluctant to monopolize the potable water tap for as long as it take to go through the full levelling process.
