Question New to me 2001 Thor Hurricane 30q Hello

So I bought a 2001 Thor Hurricane 30q last month and have begun the process of learning what's what about it. Quick question, is the fresh water tank supposed to go empty while hooked up to city water because mine has? Other than that Hiya for now.

Hello and welcome...
When attached to city water, your onboard water pump is typically ‘OFF’, and the level in your fresh water tank should not change...
If you have your water pump ON, then it will drain the fresh water tank.

Welcome to our end of the Kiddie Pool!
If it's empty, your pump is off, and you're hooked to City Water...
It's "Drop the Mic" time!"

That's why then I wasn't aware I should have the pump turned off... Doh.

There's probably at least 20 folks in here, who have the same thing...
Your question was an excellent one!

Welcome to the forum. Owning a motorhome is what many of us call, "An adventure in self-discovery." You're going to find this forum a treasure trove in answering your questions and helping solve your problems as they crop up.

Welcome to the forum and congrats in your new rig! All questions asked by someone else means I don't have to ask it in the future.

That's a great way to describe it!
I call mine, "A hole in the woods: into which one throws money..."

Where's your tank?
I'd start by finding it first, and then looking at the outside edge of it's bottom.
Happy hunting, and Good Luck!
