It fills my Portable water holding tank and overflows Just replaced my bypass valve ( to fill my holding tank ) just in case it was bypassing and it still filled my portable water tank what the heck do I do !! Is there a shut off somewhere ? Nothing is in the manual

Hey Wilkie
Welcome to the Forums


There are a few 200 owners here, as well as other R/T models


I'm sure you'll get some ideas by lunchtime


Cheers, Mike

So is mine . But connected to city water it still filled the holding tank ! Just replaced the red valve in case it was faulty but holding tank is still filling ! Done the obvious drained and ensured the tap was in closed position Still filling the holding tank having to shut city water off and use the water pump to get water ????

If you have that valve in that position and the tank is over filling either that valve is leaking or possibly the check valve in the 12 volt water pump is leaking.

Does that valve have any water leaking out the bottom when you have the water system pressurized with the 12 volt pump with no hose or plug in place?

As a matter of course I almost never hook up directly to a city water supply. I use the on board tank and fill as required using the gravity fill in the side door. It's easier to get to and in my case a limiter on overflowing the grey water tank as none of my tank indicator lights work. This is an issue I was going to address but the work around is convenient so I've never bothered. I just tally up the showers and when I get to 7, it's time to fill and dump. With the Covid thing the black tank tends to get a bit fuller as I/we are not using public restrooms while traveling. Just one more adjustment to these times, the level gets obvious when getting full. I only go into a gas station if I'm low on beer and they have a beer cave.

SteveJ, you are my man. Cold Beer!

As far as water issues, I use on board water. On less thing to hook up and unhook.

Check valve is in the pump. I would get a new pump and keep the old for a spare as it does knda sorta work.

I couldn't remember this solution, but SteveJ did. I think he nailed it.

If you are handy, I believe you might save a few bucks by buying a rebuild kit for your pump. But due to the danger of leaks, I personally would replace the whole unit. Probably $60 to $100 tops.
