Can't add "city water" and no h20 at sink

I'm trying to troubleshoot a plumbing problem on a new to me 2005 Laredo 29RL. When I connect my hose to the city intake, water spews out. I thought I had a faulty intake, so I tried it again with very low pressure. I had less of a spray mess outside, but thought I could hear water inside. So I ran into the coach and saw water leaking from under the sink cabinet, which sits on the other side of the wall from the city water intake.

Fortunately, the mess was minimal, and I quickly dried things up.

So, I added some water to the fresh water tank to check the plumbing at all the fixtures. I'm able to get water everywhere except the bathroom sink, which sits 2 feet above the city water intake.

My first thought was to replace the water intake--it's 15 years old and I thought it must be faulty.

But in studying the plumbing a little, it looks like the city intake has a cold line that runs directly to the bathroom sink.

So, now I'm thinking my problem at the bathroom sink, and my problem with connecting to city water are related.

If anyone has encountered something similar, or has any suggestions, I'd be most appreciative!

You have a plumbing leak that needs to be fixed. Fix the leak.

I think the problem with the intake might be a bad check valve. I'm going to take it apart to see.
