Is there a switch...

Is there a switch that allows us to use our water without power in our Jayco Sterling caravan.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Sterling?

2013

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Sterling yourself? What have you tried so far?

No fixing being done. We tried to use the water without power and it didn’t work as we want to go free camping

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No thanks

Hi! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with this. I may need some additional information from you first in order to give a complete answer.

You can use the onboard 12 VDC pump. Best to have some solar panels if you are going to do that as the batteries will not last long without some charging from some source. Does that answer your question? If you need more here please get back to me as all follow ups are included in our fee. No time limit.

We tried to use the water with the mains power turned off and nothing happened. We have solar panels and batteries are charged.

What country are you in? We may not have phone service there. Did you turn the pump switch on? Any noise or not?
