Filling fresh water tank

Any tips on burping the fresh water tank so it fills?

The FW tank has a vent/over flow tube, if it is working correctly "burping" the tank is unnecessary.

Vent tub most likely plugged up.

If the vent tube has a "dip" in it between the tank and the fill spout, it will develop an "air-lock" like a trap in a drain and it will not allow the venting of the tank. You may want to try to blow through the vent to see if water is sitting in it.
Mud dobbers will build nest in the vent tube IF there is no screen over the entrance. You can wad up a piece of plastic screen wire and insert it into the vent tube if you don't already have a screen. As long as air can get by, you are good to go.
