Water in Fresh Water Tank

We have a 2013 Rockwood Roo. This weekend when camping we were hooked up to the city water. When checking the readings on the tanks it said the fresh water was 1/3 full. Sure enough we pulled the plug and there was water in it. How is the water getting in there? Has never happened before. Thanks for any suggestions!

Was the tank drained prior to leaving? If so, then you have a bad check valve.

If the Rockwood Roo has a selector valve at the point where you hook up city water and a placard that says something like city or gravity and you have selected city yet water is getting into the fresh water tank, than I believe the selector valve is faulty!

Have you used a PRESSURE REGULATOR on your city water inlet hose???? Mine was doing the same exact thing, and I found out that the one-way check valve located between the fresh water tank line and the city water supply line is not rated for the variable water pressures at SOME campgrounds. You never really know what you're getting. I put on a 40/50 psi pressure regulator inline at the city inlet, and the problem went away. Less than 10 bucks at Wal mart in the RV dept. Try that, it should fix your problem! Randy

After more thought here, it could also be a check valve at the water pump outlet. Try this, with water in the trailer potable tank, city water dis-connected, turn on your water pump it should run for a few seconds and stop. If without turning on any taps the pump runs again for a few seconds and stops and continues to do this every minute or so, time interval between pump cycles dependent upon size of leak at check valve! If this occurs the check valve at pump outlet is faulty! Good Luck.
