Water Tank Leaking from Hose While Traveling

...while traveling with the fresh water tank filled, when I arrived at my destination most of my water was gone. Then I noticed that water was slowly draining out the hose. This never happened before. It's a Reelcraft A5835.

Also, it seemed to be filling the fresh water tank when connected to the city water. What gives??

Thanks!

A). What hose?

B) Some RV's will fill tanks with city water connection. While some have a switch that will let you do either. My bounder will only gravity fill the tank some do it the other way.

Not sure of your plumbing layout, but if I had that same problem, my check valve would have failed or at least is leaking. Mine is just past the the valve to turn water from tank fill to pressurize the system.
