On our 2016 2351, we went thru two of the water selectors.  Bob told  us they were looking for better valves. Unknown if they changed brands or not. BUT, he told us to relieve all the pressure on the water inlet and water system  before turning the selector. I do this all the time and have not had any problems since. It appears the selector is different on our new 2552X.

FWIW, the "Kant Leak" valves are notorious for leaking - mostly at the "T" connection --- I have one on my 5th wheel that has been repaired and I also have a spare.  Earl indicated when I picked my unit up that their early valves gave them a problem as well, but the new ones are better --- we'll see!!

I always use a pressure regulater and a water filter. I think the problem is the valve assembly as other companies have had similar problems.

The problem is when it is hooked up to the city water it leaks over into the fresh water tank side of the valve and continuously runs as long as the water is turned on. It does run out of the overflow like it is supposed to do, however it doesn't stop running as long as the city water is hooked up and turned on, makes quite a mess on the ground if I leave it running

Always use one of these to regulate the pressure from the city water. Rv is only designed to handle about 35 psi. Some city water can reach up to 90 psi. This can overpressure the valve and damage the internal seals which cause it to leak.

This won't fix the problem now, but when you get it repaired it is good practice so there is no chance for an over pressure

I did have the valve set on the city water position it was leaking passed the tank fill valve very slowly. Took about four hours to fill the tank before and started running over. Definitely had  The valve in the correct position.  The tank valve position did not completely shut off to stop the water from running  in.

We had this problem we noticed when we were camping in Cedar Key.in spring.. and I let Kermit know and he indicated the 4 way valve seemed to be a problem so he sent one and Jim replaced it. Then the pump still ran and so Jim replaced the water pump too while he had the mattress out since that is a big job to move. Since then it seems to be working well. No more overflow . P    btw  our PC is 2910T with queen bed in slide and mattress overs location of valve and pump.

PS  in rethinking this I would say we had a water leak, probably the toilet we replaced last week. And that contributed to the failures all around.
But this is after the fact evaluation. And at the time we did not know the water was leaking in toilet. All fine now. And eyes wide open.

Sounds like you have the selector set on the tank fill mark, rather than the city water mark.  On my 2015 model 2551, it's an Anderson 4 way valve.  Pointed UP is normal self contained tank/water pump mode.  Pointed Right is suction mode so you can suck RV Antifreeze into the system to winterize, pointed down is city water operation no need for water pump to get water flow...this position should NOT fill your water tank.  Pointed left will fill your water tank and (on my 2551) the overflow comes out the passenger side fill only.    When filling the tank, once water starts coming out the overflow...even shutting the water completely off,water will continue to come out the overflow for a minute or two.

When I turn my water valve, I turn it just past the click stop and then back.   

If your valve is mis-plumbed or defective, that is a fairly major job reworking the plumbing as it runs behind the shower/cabinet/toilet etc.

Hi Patricia,

I don't know your specific PC toilet, but I seem to recall that our PC toilet seat is contoured around the bowl.  When sitting on the seat, my body weight is distributed around the bowl.

A conventional toilet seat from a home improvement center typically doesn't sit flush on the ceramic bowl.  It has stand-offs.  If I installed a conventional seat on our plastic PC toilet, the concentrated pressure might cause a break.

Just keep that in mind when replacing your toilet seat.  Maybe removing the stand-offs and resting the seat flat across the bowl will eliminate such concern.

Ron
