I've read the Kantleak valve o rings can fail causing it to malfunction and fill the fresh water tank when it is not supposed to. Anderson makes a boat load of different valves for many different applications, exactly what valve are you having issues with and what is it doing?

Has anyone changed the plastic Assy. To the new all brass unit? I just did and it still fills the fresh water tank.

Splice in a shutoff valve to the water tank, or at least a check valve. Will solve the problem. I replaced the valve in my Suites and it worked as it was supposed to.
I can't feature a new brass valve not stopping water from going back to the water tank, something else is amiss...

Thanks wingnut, I will install a shut off as a safety but also will contact Anderson Brass. That is where I bought it, not off Amazon.I labeled and numbered all lines before removing any. Also did the two line reversal for the water heater per their web site for the new valve.

It's probably the check valve in your water pump actually leaking across. That's more often the problem.

I bypassed the water pump and no change, talked to Anderson first thing this am and they told me none in stalk, they would have to pull one off the assembly line and test it, they know there is a problem. Supposed to call me back, still waiting, cannot go anywhere and have to get back to Canada, we are in S. Texas.

Mine was leaking out of the back of the housing as well as slowly filling the fresh tank. I got the new brass valve installed. No more leak and it does not fill the fresh tank anymore. However when using my water pump now it will not shut off.
I contacted Anderson and they sent me instructions on how to check the new valve. I did and mine works correctly. Pump still wont shut off though.
Ill try to copy and paste the instructions on another post.

Here are the instruction for testing the Anderson valve;

Hi Phil,
I'm including a test below to determine if there is a problem with your pump. Please let me know the results of this test.

If you have a MANRV101-RF
1. Remove the LEFT and RIGHT hoses from the back of the 4-function valve (make sure to label which hose goes where).
If you have a MANRV102-RF or MANRV102-1RF
1. Remove the TOP and BOTTOM hoses from back of the 4-function valve (make sure to label which hose goes where).

2. Put Handle into CITY MODE, hook up the city water connection, and turn water on.

3. While water is on:
a. If water comes out of the valve - the valve needs to be replaced
b. If water comes out of the hoses you MAY have an issue at the check valve on the inlet to your pump. Please contact your RV Manufacturer, RV Dealer or RV Service center for further trouble shooting needs.
c. If NO water comes out at all, your RV water service panel is working correctly. Please contact your RV Manufacturer, RV Dealer or RV Service center for further trouble shooting needs.

It would be interesting to see the instructions as they did not mention anything to me. They pulled one off the assembly line and tested it and are shipping it out air for delivery Tuesday.
