In my rig I first started to see some air coming out of all the fixtures with the water. Almost like was running out of water. Then when I hooked up to city water the problem went away with air, thought it was a fluke. Then while sitting outside I noticed water coming out the overflow

You all should be using a water pressure regulator set at less than 45 psi.
Do not change the fill valve position, on or off, with any pressure on the Valve.
Per this forum, it is possible to replace the o ring seals in the Valve without removing the Valve.

I was lucky to still be next door at Lazydays CG and actually saw them remove the valve and replace the 3 or 4 gaskets on the valve that had striped due to the turning of the valve while the water pressure was on. So I will be following their advise and turn the valve to my desire position before turning he water on at the city hookup. They said this is a common problem they see all the time. The tech stated that he was not sure if a valve rebuild kit (w gaskets) could be purchase without having to buy the whole valve.

Fresh Water Tank Filling on City Water

So glad to find this post. We have a 2017 Holiday Rambler Vacationer and having the exact same issue. The dealer said maybe we didn't turn the dial all the way. They had it, water on overnight, no water in the fresh tank. We take it camping, didn't touch the dial, second day there, the fresh tank was 1/2 full. We now have it back to the dealer. Only seemed to fill if we were taking showers, using the washer, etc. Just hooked up, it did not go into the fresh tank. At first we thought it was us! We've been doing this for 15 years and never had this kind of issue. You folks have helped us confirm, it's not us, thank you!

PS we are using a regulator

I'll add that I never had the issue until I camped at Bristol Raceway. The August race rained out on Saturday. Most of the fans left so we moved across the the lot that had water at the dragstrip. 90% of the campers had left. Me and my buddy remarked how much pressure and flow was available out of the hose bib, we are both plumbers btw. It was after connecting to that hose bib and switching the Anderson valve from city to tank to add some water for the trip home and back to city that I had the issue. So the previous comments about not changing the valve under pressure and using a pressure regulator are in my new bag of tricks.

With how fragile the valve gaskets on this one is, it seems that they should have a warning in text right next to the valve.

Just dealt with this problem in my mother in laws moho. Her 16 year old fresh water pump check valve failed. The check valve was part of the actual pump. So when she hooked up to city water the pressure forced city water back through the water pump and into her fresh water tank. It then started leaking at the fresh water fill inlet. It was just a little at first, then got more and more until it became a steady stream. Like many of you I first thought it was the tank fill from the city line.

Lori, we had a 2007 Diplomat for 10 years, same thing.
