Are you guys saying that the fresh water tank is pressurized?? I doubt it. The pump takes a suction on the tank the water is pulled thru the pump and comes out pressurized.

No one has said that. The water line between the water pump and the faucets is pressurized if the pump is on, or if it holds pressure when the pump is turned off.

If flushing the check valve doesn't fix it, a quick temporary fix is to just screw a garden hose plug into the fitting. If that's not on hand, an inline garden hose shut off valve or even a common 'Y' adapter with shut offs will work.


Yep I carry one of those just in case. That was after the school of hard knocks. [emoticon]

That's not a temporary fix, that's permanent! [emoticon]

There is a one way valve just inside the city water hookup, actually it is part of the hose input. Inside the fitting is a one way valve that sometimes becomes dislodged, Most common after winterzing.
The part us not expensive, approx $10. Easy to replace, on the outside of the RV, remove the screws holding the inlet, pull out slightly and replace with the new. New caulking and done.

This is true; and they make an all plastic version (which your probably have) and a superior version with a brass connection at the backside.

Thanks!
First I have to find the tool to be able to detach the hookup! I thought I carried a bunch of screwdriver heads but the screws on the hookup look like something I haven't seen before. I'm not sure if the screws are standard across RV brands but mine looks like it needs a 'tri-wing' head. (which I don't carry)

A torx? It is star shaped. A Robertson is square.

Only 2 I've seen on my last 3 trailers are the square drive or Phillips head.

Per the Casita service department, it is a rivet, not a screw. Doh!
That being said, I cleaned it out and it's not leaking any longer. I think washing the trailer with high pressure must have moved the rubber seal.
Thanks!
