Turn off the water faucet and then tell us about your TT!

As Dan has said, the fresh water is leaking past the check valve on the water pump intake filling the fresh water tank.

Remedy for stuck/broken check valve.

To deal with this quickly is a trip to the local home store to but a one way check valve 1/2 NPT female to 1/2 NPT male and stick it between the pump inlet screen and the fresh water pump.

Since the pump's check valve is internal to the pump, the pump head must be rebuilt, replaced, or a new pump bought.

Turned of at faucet, turned on pump and let run a bit and it stopped leaking, so as it has been said, it would be the check valve. Any other suggestions or possibility? What would be the fix if its the check valve and where would it be located. Thanks for the reply

Did a hand valve get moved by mistake?
City/fresh water tank connection right?

City/fresh water connection is right--don't know what is meant by hand valve--its a hose to city water and a hose to RV system.

Ah, on mine I hook the hose to one connection for city and fresh water tank usage I then turn a valve by hand to select which one I want to use.
