It will be on the inlet side of the pump, nice to see that they spray foamed your pump in place .

How do I fix that? Pull the pump? Also there is a valve on the inlet would that help? It's the first time we ever used the pump go figure. Lol

First thing is Dis the (City Water Feed) then turn on the Pump,let water run for a MIN. NOW turn off Pump and hook to City Water! If this is not the FIX you need to take pump apart and LOOK for Damage! Youroo!!

If you've got the winterizing connection that allows you to pump antifreeze with the pump, then there are probably 2 valves on the suction side of the pump, one to the AF connection and one to the FW tank. The one to the FW tank is normally open and the one to the AF connection is normally closed. When you want to add the antifreeze, you swap them. In this case, close the FW tank valve also, and you should be OK, at least until you want to use the FW tank.

(I've also used these to fill my FW tank. Attach your filling hose to the AF connection and open both valves and the water goes from the AF connection into your FW tank. But be careful - do it slow or you can pressurize your FW tank, which is NOT a good thing.)

Hooked up tonight and it seems ok. Doesn't appear to be filling the onboard tank. Been watching the level indicator and it's good
