Question Holding tank in a older camper

Hello All,

I have owned a older camper for the past 5 years and just recently decided to use the "indoor plumbing". I got the air pump working...not sure what they're really called....to put pressure into the holding tank. but i noticed it wasnt holding pressure. I traced the leak to the city water connection/hose hook up to fill the holding tank. (I'll try to explain what the hose hook up looks like). Of course a hose hook up, a foggy (i wanna say) sight window and a air valve like the ones you see on a car tire to air them up. So my question is...is there a way to fix it, or get a new city water connection so i can hold pressure.

Thanks Ahead of Time for Your help ,

First of all, Welcome to our forum.
The "holding tank" is usually considered the black tank, wicth you may not have. Your water tank is called by most RVers a fresh water tank. I think I understand where your problem is. Try replacing the air valve core. If you don't have a tool or know how, go to a tire shop. It will only take a minute.

I have did some research on the internet and looked at the hose hook up and seen that there is no spring or screen where the hose connects. I was wondering if my check valve was missing, since i have air escaping out of the hose hook up
