Camped in a KOA last weekend (2nd time out). Normally I hook to city water, and do nothign else, pump never runs, we have water.
This time, I heard the pump run often.
When I went to leave, I disconnected from city water, and when the wife went to rinse something, heard the pump run. Thought nothing of it.
Went out side, water was flooding from the hook up hose in the bay.
And ideas? Is there some kind of check valve that can blow out or back flow stop?
Thanks for ALL your help ;-)
John

Welcome John in Miami to irv2.
You must have a water pump switch operated in TT or in water bay when you have it connected to city water. Its not needed because city water pressure will flow thru your faucets.
If you look inside the water connection for hose you will see a spring type valve that may not be seated to stop the water from coming out when you use your water pump. Use your finger or pencil to move valve around to seat in hose connection water should stop flowing.
Enjoy the forums and do post often.

Thanks.
I did as you suggested, and in deed, the check vavle seemed tp be set so that it allowed water to flow back.
(I have a water pump switch that has to be turned/pushed when not on city water)
I can fel it, and can move it, but it still does not seat.
Is this a standard item I can get at home depot, or onine RV stores?
The hole tem is about 2 inches, and connects to a PCV line under the floor, and screws to the floor/overhead in the connections bay.
Thanks ever so much.
John

Good morning John, welcome to irv2. I think you will find many nice folks and a wealth of information here. I spent my young years in Miami. 825 sw 9th. street. many years ago. Looked at the area with Google maps a few weeks ago;boy things have changed!!
The part you are looking for is called a'back flow valve'. It's available at hardware and rv stores. I'v seen them in both plastic and brass.
I would suggest you remove and bring the existing valve with you to compare. Happy Trails!!
Oh! I should add John that it is my opinion that an inline water filter should always be used to reduce the sediment entering your water system. Camco makes one that simply attaches to the hose. About $20.

Many thanks, I agree.
Joined the net, because as a computer geek, I appreciate the power of the network.
I found the piece I needed at campingworld.com after getting the info about it here. A nice bunch of folks! $7.00 for the part. Of course, since I have a road trip Friday, I paid $12.00 for express shipping ;-)
I am born and raised here. Seen a lot of chages indeed.
I remember when the Pal metto was opened,used to roast marshmallows in the woods with my parents on Saturdays: 97th ave and th Trail. Now a MAJOR shopping center!
My nephew lives very near, SW 5th ave and SW 6th street.

Boy, the memories! Me and my bud used to ride our bikes over to Crandon Park on Saturday mornings. Would cook wieners on a fire made with coconut husks. Do those wild monkeys still inhabit Crandon Park? Glad you got your rig repaired. Don't forget that water filter.
Enjoy your trip!
