Seems you may be draining the fresh water tank.

If you blow out your lines using the "city water" fitting, it will not blow out the water pump, the pipe line to the pump, the filter and anything else on that pump line. This is normal.

It is one of the problems with blowing out pipe lines. All trapped water must be removed one way or another. The pump is especially susceptible to bursting and is a little expensive to replace.

After I blow out all lines once, I blow (at lower pressure) through the anti-freeze line attached to the water pump which clears the pump chamber and the line out of the pump. Then do a final blow out. I know some don't have the A/F line in their rvs, but you could still access the inlet line and do same. Never have had a problem doing this. And it will clear all lines mucho better!!

On my trailer, city inlet is a long way from pump, so the line can hold a good amount of water!! I have installed a city inlet (w/out check valve) in sidewall near pump (for access to water outside) and it is used to blow out the lines, so not much left in the line from pump.
