Default city water inlet is leaking

Just got a '15 adventurous and trying to figure out the plumbing. Whenever I attach a water hose to the city water inlet (has regulator labeling on the inlet) and turn on the water, it will allow me to turn on the sink and shower, etc. However, the inlet will leak water out what looks like two weep holes on the inlet port itself, a significant amount. Anyone know what I can do?

Replace the city water inlet. They break and malfunction easily. They are not expensive and can be purchased on Amazon. Hopefully you can access it from the inside by opening a cabinet or removing a drawer, however you may also be able to replace it from outside without accessing it from behind.

First scrape off the silicone sealant around it with a flat razor (carefully! don't damage the paint). Next remove the screws and gently pull it out from the van wall. The PEX plumbing line should have enough flex to allow you to pull it out and work on the connection from outside the van. If not then you will need to replace the connection from the inside which may be awkward depending on the interior access.

Just make sure you test it well under pressure after you put the new one on to make sure there are no leaks.

couldn't, it would just get spit out the city inlet whenever i turned on the water pump. the right fix was as @jakeww2 suggested, to replace the $30 regulator.
