Antifreeze Inlet Roo 23IKSS

Is there a reason the antifreeze inlet is dripping while connected to a water supply?

My guess:

Valve to AF connection not closed completely. Also means the check valve in your water pump is probably leaking backwards.

Some TT's have two valves on the suction side of the pump; one to the FW tank and one to the AF connection. If you have this, then I'd also say your FW tank valve is closed, otherwise the water would be going to the FW tank instead of out of the AF connection.

Some TT's have a "3 way" valve where you set it to the FW tank or the AF connection. If you have this, then it's in the AF position. Be careful here, because if you want to use the pump with it this way, you'll just suck air from the AF connection instead of water from the FW tank.

Also, if you have the separate valve arrangement, here's an easy way to fill your FW tank. Hook the city water hose to the AF connection and open both the AF and FW valves. Close the AF valve when the FW tank is full. CAUTION: Although this lets you fill the FW tank fairly fast, don't fill it TOO fast. If you go faster than the FW tank's vent can vent off the air, you can blow up your FW tank. Use the AF valve to throttle the flow to the FW tank.

Typically the AF inlet routes to the suction side of the pump. The FW inlet routes to the discharge side of the pump.

The Gravity fill directly connects to the FW tank.

Both the AF & FW inlets have a check valve built into the connector. If the AF connection is leaking then the check valve is just stuck.

Connecting a water hose to the AF connection & running water should reseat the check valve. If not the connector for the AF might need to be replaced.

These are just standard street water connectors that can be purchased at most RV sellers. It easy to replace.

Can't be. If the FW routes to the discharge of the pump, tell me how the pump can pump from the FW tank???

Or did you mean to say the "City water inlet routes to the discharge side of the pump?"

Typical terminology is that water from the FW tank is "fresh water" and water from the City Water connection is "city water."

Let's not get the nooby confused.

Sorry about that - City Water that is.

I was trying to type one handed and hold my squirming 10month son.
