I will check under the bed to see what I can see. 😊 we only use it to keep some water in while on the road to flush.

I had the same problem, my breather hose had a kink in it.

No kinks or anything unusual that I could see.

Same problem, I just slow my roll and throttle back on the filler gizmo. Takes half an hour to fill the tank. Fortunately we have "city" water most places we camp.

Shoot. No kinks OR the hose isn't below the inlet on the actual tank, that could create a trap where the water will occasionally "blow back" at you.

Just turn up the pressure of the water going fresh tank and it will blow out the air bubble in the line thru your little air hole on the left hand corner on the fill cap

I had a similar problem when filling fresh water tank sometimes it would come back out as fast as i was putting it in. I did two things that seems to resolve the issue
1 under the bed i had a big sag in the hose so i used tie-wraps to pull the hose up thus eliminating the sag
2 i purchased one of those fillers from camping world and then bought a piece of clear hose and replaced the short one which came on the filler.

I use a clear hose and push air into the vent opening causing the check valve to open, I can then fill the tank full. Works every time.

I keep a rubber washer fill hose that I cut the end off of. One end has garden hose connection and its about 4' long. i put about half it in the filler tube. After that it doesnt spit back out until full.

My hose was mounted about an inch too high under the bed. I moved it down a little and it stopped spitting water out the filler. Good luck.
