Thanks Randy. Could someone take a picture. My tank is very slow filling up this past week. I hear the solenoid clicking. I am going to check and make sure screen is clean. would the sporlan valve be the next suspect?

There may be a defective safety pressure control valve at the input

If the valve is operating, I assume the solonoid is OK. Take the valve apart and clean it; it is not a big job.

All 5 Wanderlodges that I have owned fill slower than I would like. If it has a cartridge water filter, change the filter. If it has a water purifier filter, I would remove it and install a cartridge filter.

Also check the pressure regulator that is part of the water hose connection into the coach. These can go bad and restrict flow.

Slow water refill was do to a lot of sand build up in the screen. it was almost completely stopped up. Sporlan valve was right where Randy said. It is behind the water filter. This obstructed my veiw at first.

Thanks for all the replies
