Water Pump

Has anyone seen or had this problem: I have a 2011 Coachmen Concord and the water pump is located under the bed in the rear of the coach. On top of the water pump there is a clear plastic cover, it appears to be a sight glass. It is held in place by dog ear connections. This cover has popped off twice causing a flood inside the coach.

I am going to tape the cover down, but I don't understand why camp ground water is even going through the water pump. Does anyone know if this is standard or are the hoses connected wrong? Also are there any suggestions on how you would hold this cover down other than taping?

Thanks

I believe there should be a check valve on the out flow of the pump.This should stop backflow of city pressure back thru pump into tank. May have dirt or debris in valve

Thanks George Z. Thats what I thought also, but I can't find a check valve. On the outside of the coach, there are two locations to hook up the water hose. The first one is used to fill the fresh water tank, the other is for camp ground water supply. Beside each water connection are two toggle levers. When you hook of the hose to fill the fresh water tank, you put those levers in a certain position. When you hook up the hose for camp ground use, you put those levers in a certain location. I just wonder if one of the toggle levers on the fresh water fill line is the check valve?

Might be one of the manual valves leaking also. Without seeing and a hands on it is difficult to diagnose but I'm sure the problem is in the valving..

Interesting, my inlet postions are just opposite. The left, closest to the front of the coach is for a direct water hook up (water pump is off when this is used). The one on the right is for filling the water tank where the water pump is in the on position.

I am pretty sure that clear plastic is the filter (is on mine at least). If it gives you problems AND IF you have an inline filter from the water supply to your coach you could easily take that filter out and plumb it solid to the line. BUT that would not fix the problem, only cover it up. Sounds like you have a high pressure problem that needs attention.
