Fresh water tank

The fresh water tank on our Windjammer 3008 filled while connected to city water. Any advice as to why? Thank you.

Maybe that's a feature they have...? Anything in the manual about a crossover valve or something?
Assume you have the hose on the right connection.

Either you have a valve to allow you to do that or your check valve in your pump head failed.

I was thinking about that too, but it's a 2013, so I should hope not (yet). Unless he had some insane water pressure and no regulator in the hose...?

Seen new things fail plenty of times.

I'm gonna keep my eye on this since my new V-Lite is the sister of the Windjammer (same layout, made at same factory). My unit is still winterized so I won't be playing with it for a couple more weeks yet. But I'll try to post here if I discover anything.

Well, I looked under the bathroom sink where the city water inlet is located along with the water pump. There is a T connection between the outlet of the pump, the city water inlet and the in-line water filter. So if your plumbing is like mine it would appear the check valve in the water pump failed.

If you have a Shurflo pump like mine it has a 2 year warranty so you should be able to replace it no cost.

I think I am going to install a stop valve on the outlet of the pump so I don't have to rely on the internal check valve.
