One problem for some units is the fact that the FW tank is not completely filled. The user stops filling when the level indicator says the tank is full and the indicator is lying OR the user stops when a little water burps out without allowing the tube to vent before adding more water.

Nothing wrong with drinking from the fresh water tank. Just sanitize it 1st with bleach and you're good to go.

My 25RR Grey Wolf would read full and burp at 2/3. Make sure you're level when filling the fresh water tank. If you lean in the direction of the fill tube or the overflow/vent you can give up a lot capacity. When it seems full due to it backing up in the fill tube or coming out of the overflow underneath, give it a minute and then try adding more at a slower rate (Close the spigot halfway).

We carry drinking water for taste, even though we filter because we do use the tank water for cooking, ice cubes, and teeth brushing etc. But you should easily get a couple of days more based on the recommendations here as long as your tank is full, even if you do use it for drinking.
