City/Gravity water valve

All of a sudden my fresh water tank is slowly being filled when I have the valve in the "city" position. Has any one had this happen and how difficult is it to replace? Where would I get one like is used on the Cedar Creek?

Usually it is the check valve in the water pump that leaks. I would disconnect fresh water supply, start water pump and run a few minutes with faucet open. Reconnect fresh water supply and hope it fixed it.

What he said!
Turn off city water.
Turn on water pump.
Open and shut a faucet several times- cycling the pump.
Sometimes a speck of sediment will find it's way into the check valve
built in the pump.
This often takes care of the problem.
Good Luck!

Mine did something very similar and it turned out to be a faulty Anderson Water Valve. Dealer replaced it under warranty and problem solved
