When you are hooked to your connection that says "city water" you are not filling your tank. There should be another connection that says "fresh water". This is the one that fills your tank and you have to use your pump to get water from your faucets. The "city water" connection does not need the pump to get water from your faucets.

Mine, and I presume others, have a valve that allows me to use the city water service to fill my fresh water tank. This is much friendlier than holding the hose at the fill port. The negative is of course you are more likely to overfill. I open the fill port and often water escapes here before it reaches the overfill line. It also usually breaks the siphon.

My fresh water tank has 3 lines attached to it. A larger diameter hose that runs to the "fresh water fill" point on the passenger side. A smaller diameter vent hose that runs to a screened opening next to the "fresh water fill" point. A 1/2" pex line that runs to the wet bay. The pex line via valves can be hooked to either the water pump, "city water", or drain.

If my fresh tank is overfilled, causing water to exit from the vent line opening, water will siphon out of the fresh tank as long as the vent line opening is lower than the water level in the fresh water tank. Opening a fresh tank drain or running water in a sink (as previously recommended) until the flow stops should work. This may be your only option if the tank is not visible and your "full" sensor is not operating properly.
