I can sense your frustration! I imagine the gravity fed inlet is not checked at the factory or the dealer. It is my impression that only the pressurized water inlet and the LP gas lines are checked for leaks via pressure readings.
Look on the bright side. Imagine a slow water leak that was not picked up and created a lot of grief down the road. Still, for the price you pay for these units, you certainly expect these problems not to happen. Hope you have smooth sailing after this resolution!

no check valve on the tank fill that i have ever seen , I did pull about half my Panel loose in the main storage compartment and the fresh water fill up went up hill because they routed it over the city fill line, it was a easy fix

What happened during the PDI? I'm just curious. We're going to take delivery of a CC and hope they check all systems before cutting the proverbial umbilical cord!

Ask them to fill the tank with fresh water also...try the water pump at that time yourself...fire -up the water heater...i trusted my dealer and thought... (assumed) they had checked the fresh water -fill..didnt happen...

Had that problem with mine. Water in the vent line. Put an air hose against the little vent screen by the water fill and blew it out.

I always take an old hose and cut about 10" piece off of the end. Now you only have one fitting on one end and none on the other end. It allows you to stick the hose down into the fill tube about 10", seems work for me

I had the same problem with my Crusader 270ret. I shorted and straightened the fill hose. It corrected the problem. Primetime needs to correct this problem on the line. It is a common problem with these units.

I agree, a good PDI should have caught this. The dealer where we bought both our campers does a very good check of all systems, including filling the fresh tank, running the pump, and checking that all water fixtures are in working order. I think a good PDI at the dealer may cost them a little more in people time, but sure does make a difference in happier customers. We have bought 2 different TT from the same dealer and have had NO problems at all, with either of them with factory or quality issues.

Glad you got it fixed, but hate that you had to go through the frustration. It certainly is not unreasonable to expect the major systems (water, LP, sewer, appliances) to work properly when you get a new TT.

I checked mine today and it looks OK. I can see where it could be an issue though. Pretty jumbled back there.
