sounds like a bad check valve .... probably behind panel that has selector valve in util cargo compartment. If so, it may be easier to add an inline check valve near the fresh water tank. In my case that is easily accessible near the water pump.

Disconnect city water hose at inlet and push check valve plunger in a couple of times. Should clear out whatever impediment is keeping the check valve from seating properly.
