Water leak 2017 8524 RLBS

I walked into the trailer today after being away for 4 days and the floor was wet near the door and behind the captains chairs. I towel dried it, and couldn't see an active leak.
Now the water is still seeping under the small rear side inside cabinet (end table) in the area of the water tank.
I go outside and see water dripping from the tank overflow.
I'm connected to CG water with a pressure reducer.
#1 My guess is there is some type of valve that is supposed to prevent the water tank from filing back through the pump.
#2 There must be a leaky connection at the fresh water fill that's coming inside the coach.
Any help would be appreciated.

first more then likely your pump check valve is stuck open. correct this by shutting off city water, turning on you pump and open a faucet briefly. this should reset the check valve, drain some water from the potable water tank and turn the city water back on to test.

I agree you may have a fitting leaking start pulling panels and checking, let the forum know what you find and how you correct it.

Thanks SeaDog! I will reset it, but I will be bringing back to the dealer for the leak issue, so not pulling panels at the house.
