We are camped at Lake Tahoe, our 2nd trip out with the Retro. My camping neighbor tells me yesterday that I am leaking water. I am hooked up to city water and my fresh water tank has become full and is overflowing out the fill spout. I called the Retro dealer yesterday, service was closed but the sales staff tells me it is IMPOSSIBLE for city water to enter the fresh water tank. I agree. It should be impossible, there should be no communication but there is. I didn’t notice this on our 1st trip. Before leaving home I did put some water in the fresh tank to lower the tongue weight, maybe it was 1/3 full. It is now FULL, according to the gauge. I took a video of the water leaking. Has anyone else experienced this or can explain how it could happen?

I believe there is a one way valve in the water pump that may be malfunctioning. Plan on calling the dealer and hopefully they can repair on my way home Wed. We leave again Sat for Oregon.
