City Water leaking into holding tank

Hey guys, I have a 2016 FR3. When i'm hooked up to city water occasionally for some reason it by passes and fills up my holding tank. It's a slow fill as when we get hooked up, the next morning there is water coming out of the overflow hose. I'm guessing there is a valve that isn't closing for the pump. When i took it to the dealer to have it checked they couldn't get it to replicate the problem. This has happened on a few occasions. Has anyone else experienced this and if so how did you fix it.

Thanks
Jimmy

We just had the same problem last weekend. I'm assuming there must be a check valve somewhere that is malfunctioning. Haven't had time to check it out yet.

We had the same problem. We now use a flow restrictor and and haven't had that problem since.
