City Water Fill Inlet Leak

After a couple nights at a state park I disconnected my hose from the city water fill on my 30DS. I replaced the cap on the inlet and came back a few minutes later and noticed water was leaking from the inlet soaking my storage area. I wiped it up and it still kept dripping and did so all the way home. Thoughts

Remove the small screen from the city water inlet connection and see if the check valve (plastic button) need reseated.

Not really in or out... just seated.
It is spring loaded.
Here's a video that might help you understand...

Water procedure

Do the following
Shut off city water
run water until stops
turn on water pump ( some water still in water tank)
run water for 30 sec.
turn off water
once pump stops turn off pump leave off ( do not use with city water)
turn on city water

This should re-seat /clean the check valve in the water pump.

If you take the screen out, just press the center to re-seat that valve. If your water pump is on or the plumbing has any pressure, stand back as you'll be sprayed with water.
