Evenin all !
I want to fill up the water tank prior to using the MH after the winter drain off.
Is there any set routine or just fill the tank ? I'm thinking about how does the water get to the Truma heater ! How to avoid airlocks etc.

Any and all advice welcomed.

I just fill it with water, turn on the pump and taps until they stop spluttering. Ensure the valve is closed on the water heater so it doesn't dump the water. Might be worthwhile to let the taps run for a bit to clean the pipes

Something similar, I don't start bleeding the system until the tank is at least half full, I leave the heater dump valve open until I get water flowing, then close it, and then bleed all the cold water taps and the shower first, then go around the hot system.
