1998 Sea Breeze Plumbing

I am looking for anyone who has knowledge of a 1998 or earlier Sea Breeze plumbing. My Sea Breeze has the water supply connection without the bypass valve. I had an issue on my trip home yesterday that I think I know the answer to but welcome experienced advice from others. We did an overnight stop at a Wally World and ofcourse used the water pump. Once at the camp ground, we had city water hooked up. On the trip home we again turned on the water pump so my family could use the toilet and sinks as we traveled home. When we stopped for gas, I noticed water slowly dripping from the wet bay door. I opened the wet bay door to see a slow trickle coming from the city water hook up. After shutting off the pump, the leaking stopped. Since I have this setup, I assume that there is some check valves so that the pump outlet goes out to the system and the city water input does not go through the pump. I have not had the chance to trace the pumbing as yet and do not have a schematic of this setup. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Pictures of my wet bay attached.

It doesn't seem like water should be able to come out the city hook up. I think there's a one way valve right at the hook up.

There is a "check valve" in the back of the city water hook up connection.

EASY FIX. Disconnect the pipe/ hose from the back of the connection, remove and replace the connection/ "water inlet" assembly. Cost less than $20.00 at any RV store. I recommend "Valterra" brand. Part# A01-0171LFVP.

Our shop repairs RV's and we have replaced many of them as they get older and the built in check valve fails.

YEP......
Classic check valve failure
Course that check valve is just a cheap plastic plunger/spring/o-ring assembly-----junk!

I gutted the internals on mine and just added a garden hose shutoff valve to connection.....done. About $7 at any hardware store

Thanks for the info guys. I assumed that there was one in there somewhere. I had that plumbing line out to replace the adapter from NPT to tube compression. I didn't notice a check valve there unless it is built into the actual hose connection assembly. It's a real pain to access anything beyond what tubing I can pull out by taking the flange loose as there is no access on the back side. I think I will look into doing what you sugesst Old Biscut. Simple, cheap (in price) and effective. So what it's not automatic, not much is on this old girl! But, I didn't want all the bells and whistles that would need replacing.

Yes the check valve is built into the assembly.
