Water connection won't tighten

Hope this isn't a duplicate. Searched but couldn't find a post. water squirts out of fresh water connection, as if it is not filling. It takes forever and I finally gave up as peeps were behind me getting impatient. I did get some water, but, dang, I hate to have all that water wasted. Not to mention, I'm afraid the pressure might be too much. Is there something possibly blocking intake? Should I just forge forward and hope tank doesn't explode.
TIA
Joyce

Did you check the o ring inside the hose fitting? If missing or damaged you will get a leak.

There is a back flow preventer valve in line with your water fill input. They do go bad so check to see if it is blocking water flow.

Thanks. When I thought maybe screen washer was obstructing flow I removed it. I saw the back flow preventer button. It pushed in relatively easy. Still squirted. I returned to water station with another person to try again. Dang, station was closed. Will try later today.

You can't leave it out. You need to have a washer or a washer/screen combo.

Make sure the valve is in the "tank fill" position and not the "normal" position. Hope that helps.

Can you clarify the problem, just a little? Is the water squirting out from the screw connection for the hose, around the threads, or is it coming from behind the female receiver for the hose end?

I ask because even if there is a blockage, there should be no leaking at the hose connection. When on city water, that connection is under constant pressure and would leak on every motorhome. If there is a blockage of some type, that can be addressed after you determine from where the water is leaking. If it's coming from the screw connection of the hose, you may have a distorted, dented, pitted hose end or female receiver and the washer/screen cannot make a tight seal. If the water is coming from behind the connection, there is a problem with the filler pipe/connector interface and the filler line needs to be exposed to investigate. That may mean removing the facia covering the water connection or, if available, part of the facia to look behind and see where the connector and line join.

Can't help with the slowness but I will throw this out for the leak.

I use one of those brass 90° connectors on our rig. A few years back, I developed a water leak around the connection. Tried new orings and tightening more than I thought was necessary but still had the little dribble show up. I finally found that there was a crack in the threads on the 90° brass connector. Who would have thought?

OP, be sure there isn't a crack in the threads on either the rig's female connector or the hose's male connector.

To test that backflow preventer, Remove the water fill hose, turn on your water pump, then push the backflow preventer; be ready to get wet if it works as designed.

Bush fix time. Take out the two screws holding the fill fixture in place. Remove it outward. Disconnect the internal hose clamp. Knock the back flow preventer out of the fixture. Use it for now.., Order a new external water fill fixture.

After fighting the drenching 3 or 4 times it seemed to stop the squirting. I would hate to think operator error, but it must have been. Both of us! Thanks for all suggestions
