Plumbing

Hello, just un winterized our jayco 19h and filled the water tank, when i turned on the water pump water comes out the city water intake? I think i open all the valves (1 at pump and 2at the water heater) . Should there be a cap on the city water intake, if so can you get these at a home depot?

Thanks

The cap on the city water intake is just a rubber cover on mine. I think it's there primarily to keep dirt out. Check the valve near the water pump and the water heater again. Maybe someone else has seen this bug but I have not...

Thanks everything works fine if hose is attached, all faucets have hot water, so i know those valves are open, is there a valve that determines if you are using city or tank water

I think either your check valve isn't seating properly or possibly got damaged over the winter. Try releasing the pressure on the water line. Then press in on the check valve release (it's inside the the water filler inlet. You might have to remove a small screen before you can get at it) and have someone inside turn the pump back on. Release the check valve when the water squirts out.

The last step of the winterization for the fresh water line is to turn off the water pump and release the pressure on the water line. Then (this is a two person operation) the person outside pushes in on the check valve and has someone inside turn on the water pump. When the water squirting out turns pink, release the check valve and allow the water line to pressurize again.

If you didn't do this step, there could be water at the check valve instead of antifreeze, and if it froze, the results are unpredictable (as us old-time computer professionals used to say).
