Help! I just bought a 2009 KZ Sportsman and there is no gravity fill on the unit but there is a water tank. I can't find any valves to switch either. I found the specs on the camper and it says it has a 40 gallon fresh water tank but it appears as if there is no way to fill it. Does anyone have any ideas? The guy I bought it from passed away so I can't call him for help.

Hook up a hose to the fresh water inlet and see if it fills. There may or may not be a valve someplace you have to turn.

I have hooked up to the city connection but it doesn't fill the tank. There are no valves that I can find.

You will either have a valve right near the city water connection or you may have a second hose connection that is plumbed to the FW holding tank only. It may not be near the city water connection and most likely would be near the holding tank.

You may have a winterizing hose. If so, you can draw water in from a container using the onboard pump.

To fill from the city water port, turn the valve on to the tank. If this works, you should find a pair of vent pipes under the trailer and they will expel water when full.

You can contact KZ and ask them directly! Sometimes, the obvious things get forgotten!

The 09 brochure doesn't show any option that would indicate that there was something other than a gravity fill. I had an 09 KZ Spree that did include a gravity fill. Here is the 09 brochure if you are interested 09 Sportsman
