No Cliff. The hose was inserted into the fresh water intake.

I did have my regulator hooked up on the hose thereby not as much pressure on the waterflow. I guess all my plumbing could have expanded but i dint see how it could have held all that water. Oh well.

if you were in your gravity fill, from what I remember of my old coach, it didnt matter what setting the FILL switch was in... the water went in the tank regardless.

So when you DID flip the switch, the water still present in the lines from the previous time you had everything pressurized just back filled into the tank.

I would recommend any time you are filling fresh water tank, check your grey, black and fresh water gauge periodically when you first start until the tank gaude you think you are filling moves just to make sure you are putting it where you think you are! One time I was filling the grey and fortunately caught it while it backed up into the shower basin before the mess.

If you were using the gravity fill the water was going into the tank. There is no switch for the gravity fill, it is either filling, off(no water on) or over flowing. If you were using the pressure fill there are two options either filling tank or pressure for the house.

I'm a big fan of gravity fills. I used mine exclusively. It was quicker, easier, more simple.

Thank you everybody. Feel better now...lol. I did check the fresh water tank display while doing this and it didnt look like it was filling much if any at all. Once i flipped the switch it gushed in based on the sound.

No. I think the gravity fill deal is what happened.

Like others have said, you don't need to throw the switch to fill the tank from the gravity fill. The rush you heard when you flipped the valve was the water pump pumping water from the tank back into the tank. It does sort of a loop then the pump is on and the valve is set to tank fill.
