Water Shooting Out of Fresh Water Connection

We just de-winterized our Scamp 13. We ran fresh water through the system and flushed it out from all faucets/toilet/shower etc.
We noticed now when we are running the pump located near the sink that water is shooting out of the fresh water connection on the outside of the trailer?
Any ideas why this would happen-it would seem that the water should be going in to grey water tank. We emptied grey water tank and still have same issue?

Thanks
Scott and Linda

It sounds like you have a stuck check valve or stuck regulator at the fresh water connection. If it is open, the water will flow backwards out of that port. If you have one of those at that point, turn on the water pump and tap on the valve with a metal object to wake it up. If that doesn't stop it you could screw in a plug.

Water Shooting Out Fresh Water Inlet

You were 100 percent correct. It was the check valve stuck. Now I know what a check valve is.... LOL

Scott and Linda can now leave for the campground...
