If the process Charles suggested doesn’t work, you can pretty easily take the pump apart and flush it out and manually unstick the check valve. On my trailer it’s harder to access the pump than it is to take it apart.

Doesn't matter what type of fresh water tank fill system that you have for your trailer, water can still leak past the pump internal check valve, filling the tank.


Not quite true. With our system, when all the valves are set for city water the pump is out of the system.

And the check valve is what keeps the pump out of the system. If it fails, and they often do, the pump is back in the system.


When seconds count, the police are only minutes away.

I've never had city water get past my pump and back into the tank. If if did I'd do what CharlesinGA says.......if that didn't work, I'd put a Shark-Bite check valve on the downstream side of the pump and be done with it.
