Cannot fill fresh water tank

I had the same problem on my 5w. I discovered the vent was crimped. The air being displaced in the tank by water needs some place to go. If it cannot escape, water will rush back thru the only opening and make it appear that the tank is full. You will probably find that your vent tube from the tank is disconnected from the vent hole by the filler or there is no tube at all.

Me too

My 2016 26rr had a 90* screwed into the fresh water tank with 3" of hose hooked to it. Long story short. I ran a hose from the tank 90 to the tank vent above the filler cap. There was sealer goop in the in said vent..

n0ms, my vent hole has sealer in it too. I'm going to try to connect a new vent to it.

We have the 241QBXL and had the exact same problem. I simply plugged up the overflow tube and now the tank fills completely full. We've been using it this way for nearly 2 years now without issue and we always travel with a full tank.

Water tank vent

I had the same prob on our PU. Discovered the screen on the opening of the vent pipe was gone and some type of insect built a condo in the vent. Cleanout corrected the problem.

Oh Oh. On my new 5w i noticed I ran out of water quickly. Maybe my tank didn't fill it up all the way? It called my attention that water was coming back from the vent after not too much time filling it up....

Lost water from fresh water tank.

I had a similar problem. Filled my water tank until water was running out of overflow. I checked the tank and it was full. When I got to my campsite I checked again and tank was only 1/3 full. I thought I had a leak, but couldn't find any. Does the overflow hose go down in the tank and is it possible my water was siphoned out?

How do I know where the overflow hose goes down all the way to the bottom?
