It might just be a "gravity feed"...
Turn the water on, and see what happens!

Good luck!

Maybe because no one else has a "2019 thor hurrice 29m"? I know I don't.

But there are 2 common ways to fill an RV's fresh water tank:

Gravity fill though a capped opening that a hose will fit in, but no connect to; or,
Pressure fill through the city water connection and a diversion valve that directs the connected city water hose to either the fresh water header for direct use, or to the fresh water tank for filling.

There are lotsa people on here that have the Hurricane 29M and I am sure one will tell you which applies to that model if you can't figure it out.

Drivers side water hook up is for campground water

Sorry, but 8 minutes isn't very long to wait for replies. Most people on here (except Bob) aren't just sitting around waiting for the next post . Glad you found the water fill, have a great time at the dunes.

If you haven’t used your fresh water tank before then you need to keep an eye on the water pump strainer. (Clear plastic cup with a mesh strainer on the side of your pump) Check the strainer occasionally because you may pull crud from the tank, Thor is real good about cleaning before installing.

If you plan on using the fresh water tank for consumption you should add a disinfectant since it hasn't been used or sanitized

I use .5 to 1 oz hydrogen peroxide per 10 gallons of water, other folks use bleach per their chosen method

Really best to sanitize and flush before using as potable water
