Full fresh water tank??

Got up this morning and my tank levels. To my surprise my fresh water was reading full. Like many I only keep a few gallons for on the road bathroom breaks and hand washing. Any idea how this might occur? Any help is appreciated.

I will assume that you were connected to city water during the night so the water lines in your unit were pressurized. My first point to look would be the check valve or one way valve associated with your water pump. Before I started tearing into things I would shut off the city water run some water into a drain to release the pressure and then turn on the water pump and use some of the water in the tank. This may un-stick or flush some small junk holding the check valve slightly open. I have heard that in some models the winterization valves being in the improper positions can cause this problem. I would look into those two options before taking the check valve apart.
