I may not be phrasing my question right.

In fact, I am not convinced that this fill hose is a "gravity" type. Spilt water would travel down the fill hose and drop inside the compartment. I would suspect that the hose is made for a connection of some kind... but what kind?

Sharon, I've been looking at that fill adapter, but the tube on it is 5/8"... the fill hose on the 2501 is 5/8" at the most... so I don't think it will fit.

Captain Skip, Is your fill hose also terminated in a male threaded connector? how do you connect the fresh water source to your fill hose?

Thanks Again! Trip is in two days... so I need to start the sanitization process tonight.
Mine has male threads but they're much larger than the hose threads. There's a threaded cap that goes on them. The hose actually fits inside the water fill for an inch or so. To make life easier I bought one of the fill extensions to attach to the end of the garden hose.

Aha... ok... I may have a different setup. On the 2501, the fill hose attached to the pump/filter housing is a smaller diameter than a garden hose

Thanks Captain!

Thanks Captain!

Are you sure you are not trying to fill via the winterizing port? My fill is on the passenger side exterior. Black cap with a large enough opening to stick the hose in.

MrJoe, apparently that was exactly what I was trying to do. So I found the problem and the problem is that I am an idiot.

All fixed.

Well... I'll probably continue to be an idiot, but at least I am now an idiot with a full tank of fresh water.

I have a Coachman Concord which I purchased new in 2013 (I am a true novice). I was able to fill the potable water tank with no issues. This year I have had a problem When I connect to the potable water connection nothing is going into the tank at all the water runs for a while and then it just drains out under the chassis. It almost appears there is a valve not open somewhere. Any ideas?
