Any others having similar issues and can offer a solution.
I have had three different dry camping weeks and have had same thing that you are describing, however here is my 2cents.
My first was the same as yours.
My second I was in a position that I could pump water into the tank and pumped 25 gal in. That seemed to correct the problem somewhat.
My third after seeing what happened the first two times, I over filled the tank until water came out of the overfill. I did not have any air for that trip.
Making another trip this week and will do the same thing and see what happens, and will let you know the results.
Where we camp there is a place a few miles away where we can take on a load of water and not have to worry about carrying around all the extra weight.
