shore water back filling holding tank

Today I noticed water in coming out of my fresh water holding tank fill spout.
I'm hook up to the spigot at the cg. I did fill my holding tank last weekend as temps dropped into the lower 30's.(heated tank)

Any how , Last weekend I may have ran my pump with the cg water still on for a minute or so.

Is there some sort of check valve that may have been / or could be stuck thus back filling my fresh water holding tank. Not sure if I remedy the problem or not yet.

There is a check valve in the system and if the CG has high water pressure it will over ride the check valve and flow into the fresh water tank. A water pressure regulator is a handy investment to prevent this sort of thing from happening.

I do have a adjustable water pressure regulator in-line. Did notice that it was up to 58 and turned it down to 47.

Same thing happened to me the other day but, I had the 5ver hooked up at home to our well. Had one of those camco pressure regulators hooked up to it. I have had a chance to mess with it yet. I never knew that running the pump with shore water hooked up was a no-no maybe thats what caused the problem with mine.
