New Beaver Owner with Questions

I am a new owner of a Beaver Marquis motor home and am experiencing some problems in getting the motor home ready for the season.

My first problem is when I hook up the city water hose and turn off the autofill valve the water continues to run and comes out the over flow. How do I stop the filling and just use the city water?

The valve handle may just be slipping on the shaft and it may be fixable. Otherwise take that valve out and trot on down to Lowes or Depot and see if they have a close enough match.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

I think Steve hit it on the head with his advice.

I've added a descriptive title to your thread so you'll get more views from those who can help.

Best of luck.

On our Beaver, there was a solenoid valve under the bottom drawer in the kitchen that turned the water on and off when filling the fresh water tank. It was a plain old ASCO industrial solenoid. If you hooked up to a water supply and got a grain of sand or rust particle lodged in the valve, this could prevent it from closing. When you dissemble the valve, just be sure to totally dissemble and check the little needle on the top of the solenoid shaft that moves up and down. It's not uncommon for this needle to get obstructed by a particle.

We always fill our tank, turn off the city water and use the coach pump, even when in a campground for a stay.

Can you hear the Asco valve shifting? If so then the problem is as super rep described. There are kits available for the solenoid but if the diaphragm is not puncured a good cleaning will work. A small particle plugged the hole in my diaphragm and the valve would not operate.
