Need Help

Need some help please. I am at a campground from nowhere and my fresh water tank is filling up what seems like on it's own. When I hook up to camp water, and it is on the right water inlet, not the fresh water inlet, my fresh water tank starts fill up slowly and starts running out the over flow tube. Does anyone have a water line diagram so I can try to trace where it may be getting into the fresh water tank? This is a 2014, FR3, 28. Also I do use a pressure water regulator at the faucet. Thank you for your quick help.

Mr J

I would use a water pressure regulator at the campground faucet, you have no idea of the pressure in the lines otherwise. It sounds to me like your backflow prevention valve is partly stuck open. I would first turn off the city water at the faucet. Then run some water in the RV from each faucet to release the pressure. Then I would turn on the RV water pump and again run some water from each faucet. This may correct your problem, if it does not the backflow valve on your water pump may need to be fixed, or crud removed from it.
