Check the RMS & RRMS in the RESP output1 and/or output2 !

TIP3P charges
O -.8340
H .4170

You did a 12 mol. orientation RESP fit ? Right ?

Well I would test the Kollman' group strategy 1st, checking the RMS/RRMS as said
- you should do the O and H equivalencing in the 1st input
- Freeze all in input2

Another strategy would be to add intra-molecular restraint on the O and H charge
values to force them to take the TIP3P charge values... You can do it manually.

I am not sure, it is a good idea to send your files in the AMBER mailing list.

Manually: Your model is small it is not a problem.
It is done automatically in R.E.D.-III
