Fresh water pump

We recently returned from a trip and had the fresh water pump cycling on and off every few minutes. I looked for a leak and could see none. I removed the cover to look at the pump and did not see any leaking there. I discovered that I had not fully turned the valve from the fill position to the position to draw water from the fresh water tank. I hope this helps some people out there to not have to replace a perfectly good water pump.

yes, if the valve allows any air leakage, or entry, the pump will come on and off. Ours did this, and Thor replaced the valve, which corrected the problem.....
now I have a new problem that recently came to light.
I noticed several days ago that when I have city water, and move the valve handle to 'city water', it continues filling my tank, as well. I found that if I turn the valve to 'winterize', the city water works fine, with no water to the tank.
I assume the valve needs to be replaced again, but the question is this:
If the 'city water' and 'winterize' both work for incoming city water, what is the need for both?
