Exterior city/camp water leak at connection

Returned from trip Sunday and put MH ( 30" class A THOR A.C.E.) in storage. DW just called while doing some cleanup and said that the water connection appears to be leaking showing on the outside. We are not connected now. We do still have according to panel 3/4 of a tank of potable water but that connection is not leaking. We did use water regulator and filter during hookups. Any idea's or previous experience? Thanks for you information!

I have had this issue in the past. It was the backflow preventer that was stuck open on the city water/fresh water tank fill. May have been some debris. A simple fix was to push and release the plunger at the fill poit a few times. It re-sealed itself and I have not had the problem since.

As Jim 28730 said push in and release the valve/plunger in the city water inlet (hose connection). This should fix it. If not you may have to do what I needed to do and that is replace the connection itself. The part is available at most RV supply stores and costs about $10.
