Water pump runs every 30 minutes

We purchased a 2018 Montana high country 305rl in the fall and just picked it up this spring. On our second trip and water pump runs ever 30 minutes or so. I have checked that no faucets are leaking and have checked behind the convinience area for leaks. Have also checked low point drains and under any of the sinks. Have not been able to find anything. I will mention to the dealer but was wondering if any of you have any suggestions. Thanks

You have to switch the water inlet back to city water instead of fill position.
We have all done the same thing.

It may look that you have it to city water but make sure it is all the way. If it is cracked open just a little it will do that.

The pressure can also be bleeding down from within the pump and back into the fw tank.

If the check valve on the city water inlet is dripping that could cause it and you wouldn't notice because the drips would be in the convenience center.

I checked the convenience centre again. The valve position should be NORMAL FLOW not FILL.
It doesn't actually say city water, the Normal flow is just the correct position when you are hooked up to city water .

Thanks for all of the replies. I did have the the switch on water fill so that is likely the issue. I will try that next trip
