Water auto fill

Getting ready to head south for the winter a today I started filling the fresh water tank with the auto-fill and all was going well un-til I turned it off and the water kept going and overflowed onto the ground. I had a new auto fill switch so I installed it but water again keep filling when I turned it off. Odviously the valve is not closing and must be stuck but for the life of me I can not see where the valve is located. I think the best bet is to get it closed and just use the gravity water fill. These fancy accessories are sometimes a pain in the butt, anyone know where the valve is?

Do you have a picture of your new "auto fill switch"? What kind of RV do you have? I personally watch my water fill gauge and turn off the water when it shows full. deSanford

Its a 2008 dynasty and I have no picture. It is a switch that you push to turn on the water flow and then you turn the switch back to the middle position that is suppose to turn off the water. Yes I can also watch the gauge and turn it off when I want to but that is not my problem, the auto switch is not making the valve close when I turn it off.

Water valve

The water valve should be close to your water pump and has two wires going to it. The valve should be made of brass and if the coach has sat for a while, water in the valve can leave calcium in the inside. All I did was take the valve apart and soak it in CLR, cleans everything up nice and shiny. Put the valve back together and has worked perfect for two years now.

Ken, are you sure that the water was not overflowing BEFORE you turned the switch off? Just wondered if this could be another instance of the overflow siphoning the water out, which is a common problem discussed on the forum many times.

I never put more than a third of the tank with water when I fill. Turned off the auto fill and it just kept filling, I liked the answer from Koole as to the valve is located by the water pump and needs cleaning, so that is my next step.

Ken
The name and part number for the valve is ASCO Red Hat #8210G094
Rebuild kit #302372
I found this job to be easy to do.
