    Water issues, flooded the basement... TWICE

    Anyone have the screen just past the water pump pop out? I was having issues with water system (just finding out this is a common issue) all week. Then my neighbor said my camper was leaking. Wow was it, a fantastic water fall down the entire side...took the basement apart, replaced the screen that had blown out. Dried everything, put back together (stupid I know, but didn't want m brand new camper to look redneck) , and laughed it off as camping. Next day, neighbor came back, and yes another glorious cascade of water (really, they should add this feature in the 2017). This time I removed the screen housing from he line till I get back in for service.

    I've heard of that happening where the owner was using city water but had the KantLeak selector set for using the water pump and FW tank. Are you sure that your settings in the convenience center are correct?

    Yup, the valve is in the wrong position, happened to me also. It took about 3 trips before it happened, I zip-tied the cover back on to make sure if I make that mistake again, it won't come off, and put the valves n the proper location.

    Also happened to me during the same time my Kantleak valve had failed where the City Water selection was actually filling the FW tank.

    If it was just filling the FW tank wouldn't the water just come out the tank over flow. That's what mine did when the valve failed. Not a "water fall down the entire side" like OP says.

    If you contact GD Customer Support (574 825 9679) they'll send you a replacement spool for the KantLeak selector...supposed to have deeper seats to hold the O rings in place.

    Mine was a two stage process. First I discovered that water was overflowing from the FW tank even though "city" was selected. I turned water off and selected tank and used the pump. I later checked and found the basement flooded and divorce ref the pump leak.
