Pick up an inline check valve and install it on the water pump (whichever direction the flow is based on the fitting's threads). You may need a union (F-F) to match it up in the right direction. You want the water to only flow from the tank to the camper; not the other direction.

When you get home, connect to a city water source and try to back flush the pump to clear it; if that fails to fix it, you can repair the valve body or replace the pump.
Herk, That is not a bad idea at all. I never thought of that.....
