Water going the wrong way "out" the "Filler"

Noticed water dripping from the fill spout today. Would that be a backflow valve, and how hard is it to fix?

Is this the tank / city water fill you are talking about ?

If so it sounds like there is some obstruction causing the check not to reseat. Try to flush it with water.

If you are having water come out the gravity flow and you are attached to shore line water your tank/fill valve is probably not closed all the way.

Thanks!

Bug512 and Firedoc, thank you. I connected to city water and cycle a few times, problem solved. This Forum stuff is all new to me, I have used as resource, but never participated. Love it!

They make plugs where the hose connects on the motorhome. This will keep insects out when not connected and provide a plug just incase the check valve fails to work again.
