Does anyone have a picture or know of a check valve that is in the city water connection that would be restricting flow any?
There is no check valve in the city water connection that I know of.... Also I would just replace it, Surflo makes a good pump, You can go up a size also. How they size the pumps is by the number of fixtures it supplies. Get the next size bigger more PSI.

All three of my previous and current trailers had/have a check valve
in the city water fitting. It's right there where I screw on the fresh water
hose to the trailer side.
Some folks winterize and while there is pink stuff in the system under
pressure they push open the check valve at the city water inlet to let
the water come out until they see pink.

Problem is it's real easy to unseat the check valve with your finger and
then parts tend to fly out and get lost so I don't recommend clearing
that line that way. I use air to blow the water further into the system
before I start pumping pink thru the pipes.

They all have check valves integral to the fitting. Remove the silt screen from yours and you will see the valve stem.

I was using the search function for several days now trying to find answers to my problems and learn more about campers in general. I didn't want to start a new thread when this could be part of or some great info for me solving my own problem. I would like to see the last picture but it wouldn't load. Sorry for getting this off topic. But this might help original poster in solving some of his problems if he ever checks back. This was a pretty old topic. I'm still learning a whole lot reading these forums. Thanks

Some of the newer model 5th wheels that I have seen come with a valve on the outside control panel to fill the fresh water tank via the city water connection. If that is the case here, could the valve be cracked open or bad ??

Yes the separate fill valve can leak by. The pump leaking backwards is quite common, esp if someone uses the pump while on live shore water pressure.
