After watching this and trying different line ups over our 6 nights it appears I had high water pressure from the park. I put my regulator on water inlet (showed 35# outlet) and slow fresh tank filling stopped. I put it back without regulator and problem returned. I also noticed it got worse late at night when overall park use dropped off. Will confirm my findings at next different park outing. I was not able to see the park pressure as only had pressure indication out of regulator.

I had this problem today....on our 5th trip. Water tank full, coming out overflow (slow drip). I did forget to turn off water pump before I turned on fresh water. Also forgot to run some water through fresh hose first, so probably had more air in line than normal. I just turned off pump, disconnected city water, opened sink faucets (both), then hooked city water back on, turned on, ran faucets until air was out. We'll see! 2014 328TS.

Well, didn't work. Guess we'll be taking the coach in for warranty service. Thought we were in the clear, but woke up this morning to water dripping out of the fresh water overflow again...

Disconnect the public water, Turn pump off. Run water until it stops. Leave faucet open. Run pump, close faucet after water runs, This should clear and reset the back flow valve.

Do what Flybob said. You have to move water through the check valve to open it up, then let it close fully when the pump shuts off. As Flybob implied, close all faucets and let the pump shut itself off. Once the pump shuts itself down, if the check valve is holding, it should not turn on again (not for a few hours, at least). If it starts up again within an hour or so, the check valve is still leaking.

Thanks! Just tried this. City water back on. It will probably be a while before I know, though. Used water from fresh water tank yesterday.

360true, if you are using city water then you wouldn't be running the water through your fresh tank, so you are not going to run it dry it connected to city water. That is why there are two hook ups for water, one going into the fresh tank and the city inlet going straight through your plumbing and that too why you have to worry about to much pressure from the CG spigot.

I agree with you. But we were having such low faucet pressure only from the city that I was using the pump in addition. I have a pressure regulator at the city side with a guage that never showed more than 40 pounds. I removed the regulator and now have good pressure with just city.. Do the regulators ever go bad or her stopped up with struvite or ??

40 psig is probably the regulators setpoint. That's about what they run: 40-45 psig.
