The check valve in the water pump likely has a piece of debris caught in it causing the city water to back flow into the tank.

Also, some models have a valve that allows you to fill the fresh water tank while connected to city water. It could be leaking or positioned incorrectly.

As search of forum on this particular problem will bring up tons of threads about this very subject.

Please include specifics about your unit when posting so we can better help you with problems.

Could you provide a little more info, on your Wildcat control panel where you hook up the city water hose is there a valve to change from city to fresh water, or are there two separate connections. My Silverback only has one connection I'm not familiar with the new Wildcats. This may help to pinpoint your problem and find a solution.

Ravn53 think you are correct sounds like a bad check valve between the city and fresh water system. You might try turning off the city and running the pump for the fresh water tank it might free it up if it's stuck or clogged with something. If not sounds like a warranty repair.

This usually solves the problem, although it could happen again. It's not necessarily a flaw in your system, but just something that happens every once in a while. It can happen to any of us. If it happens on a regular basis, then get it checked out. A pump is an easy thing to replace and or take apart and clean.
