dealer told me it was a design issue a few years ago. had to trickle water in very slowly and have done that for 3 years.
had to take tanks off for a different reason. founf the fresh water fill hose was pinched during manufacture.

Unbelievable! If you found that while still under warranty, the dealership would have said that was the intended design so that the tank would not be inadvertently overfilled.

I found a hydraulic line like that recently on mine. After adjusting it the slides in the rear of our camper move much better now.....

Only believe about 20%. Problem is how to identify which 20%. I like to research, research, research - then when I deal with dealership (or any maint.), I ask a couple of questions to which I already know the answer. If they fail the test - I go elsewhere.

Definitely a design flaw...they weren't lying!
