Check your winterization valve positions.

It's a common problem... reported here weekly. It generally has nothing to do with winterizing valve. It's usually related to the water pump's internal check valve. Read all the posts and external links in this thread ==> Water issues - overflowing fresh water tank.

Perfect.... thank you. Winterization valve positions fine weíll just install a bypass valve. Seems like itís always something. Thisíll be an easy fix at least.

You let him off light.
I prefer an inline check valve (although I havenít needed one) because it allows water to flow in only one direction so you donít have to remember to open/close anything. Whatever works best for you.
