Or make your own by cutting the female end off a hose with about 16"-18" of hose and put a new end on the remaining hose.

Our 2300 is the same way. It needs a hose about 24-30" long, shoved in to about full depth. So I just cut a hose to that length and put it onto the water supply hose to fill the tank. It works fine. I use a shutoff valve before the short hose. That comes in handy too.

The reason you have water gushing out of the fill hole is that air has to come out of the tank somewhere. There is a particular product made with a smaller diameter hose you attach to your water hose before inserting into the fresh water fill. This smaller diameter hose allows water to fill your tank while allowing the displaced air to leave. Currently on sale at Camping World for about $4-6.

On ours, the hose of the pre-made filler would not have been long enough to get the water over the hump in the fill hose. That's why I made one that is more than 24" long.

I use my stepladder to hold the hose up,,, and I run the water very slow,,, once I get it started I go find something to do !!! Air vent & screen must be clean,,, I use a small hose to blow in to the air vent to make sure there is no water in it !!!
If you chose to use the Robot Adaptor be carful,,, years ago we were using one,,, the DW went to remove it,,, and the hose fell into the FR tank,,, Gone for ever !!!
Don't forget to fill WH before you are done !!!

I bought a 10 foot white drinking hose & cut it about 2 feet long, keeping the female end. Screw it onto your white drinking hose & carefully shove the hose down inside the fresh water inlet, it works great & I do not have to worry about taste because it is all the white drinking hose. I will not be able to answer back because I am going for a hip replacement tomorrow morning so I am not sure when I will be back on my computer. Hope this helps.

I hope the knee is doing well. I know running is out, my doctor said no running or jumping. Golf in 2 months.
