Leak from hose near City water hookup

Hello Fellow Campers,


I am in need of help & advice. I took my family on a two night camping trip in our 1974 Argosy. I had a couple issues one of which is a leak from a hose next to the city inlet. It occurred once I turned on the city water. I turned the city water off, filled that storage tank and used the water pump. Unfortunately, this did not solve the problem as the leak would continue every time we used the sink. After reading other threads I'm still at a bit of a loss on where to locate my check valve and if the check valve is even the problem. Any advice on this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Check the gasket inside the "garden" hose. Where does the sink leak? Replace the valves inside the valves and faucet. Check valve should be inside the left rear near floor level. Also the inline pressure relief valve, which is probably not needed anyway.

Photos?

I've had issues with my kitchen faucet spray leaking whenever I'm hooked city water or running from my tank? I have an 06 Bambi. My wife likes the sprayer so I may have to replace it. Anyone else had this issue? If so a fix? I've taken apart the sprayer and it seems to be ok. But, obviously it's not. The gasket looks fine?

My 06 Bambi sprayer leaked, according to PO. I had a new one put in. Apparently I could only get sprayer kind, I would have preferred plain faucet.

Where exactly is it leaking? Gaskets can "look fine" but still leak. Replacements are cheap.

The leak is coming from the hose right next to the city water inlet. It leaks when the water hook up is on or when I use the water pump. I'm trying to find the location of the check valve and wonder of it could be a different issue.
