Pump contiuously running after filling freshwater tank 2022 Flagstaff Microlite FBS

The photos shows the position of the valve under the bathroom sink where the exterior fill valves punch through to the inside. 2022 Flagstaff FBS Microlite

We have filled freshwater tank to 2/3 full. When turn on the water pump it's just continuously running for @ 5 minutes. Is that a problem? How long should it run?

Thank you in advance.

If the water heater is empty, it will need to pump about 6 gallons to fill the heater.
Sounds more like the intake to the pump is restricted by a valve somewhere or the suction line is sucking air. Make sure the little filter on the intake of the pump is properly seated otherwise the pump will suck air. We found ours to be cracked from improper winterization by the previous owner.,

Turn the highlighted valve to the other position it will go to. I believe you are set up to draw from the antifreeze suction connection.
