Hey Robert - can you give us a little more detail? Are you referring to the pressure relief valve on your water heater or another check valve? What exactly is it doing?

the check valve where you hook up the city water
it has a check valve to you can use your water pump and water tank
if i turn on my pump it runs water out where city water hookup is

Easy fix

This is an easy fix. Inside the valve you will find a small plastic piece that looks like a golf tee. Around the 'head' is suppose to be an O-ring. It came off and is preventing the valve from closing.
You will have to pull the hose connector from the camper, removing three screws and breaking the putty seal. Then disconnect the hose clamp.
You can then push the valve stem thru (it just snaps in) from the outside.
There will be a small spring around the valve stem.
Put the O-ring back on and put it back together.
I've had to do this twice now (some people never learn from their mistakes).
Next time we winterize, we need to remember to release some of the pressure by opening a faucet before pushing the valve in.

I hope this helps.

The valve could also be just caught in the open position. Wiggle it with your finger and see if it resets.
