Those displays are not always accurate.

fresh water fill

Hi, the water level at the control panel did show empty since trying to fill the tank the level did increase on the panel. Even if the control panel was not reading the level there is no way we have added enough water to fill it.
We did empty the tank earlier, don't know if that should of caused the problem. The water just comes back out from the hose.

Hi Jopederson,
It would be helpful if we knew what kind of RV/TT/camper you have. You can try filling the FW tank more slowly so that air can escape through the main fill tube (thats what I do). But you need to be sure that your overfill tube is not kinked or obstructed. Its VERY important that you not overfill your FW tank.

Good Luck

Go to search. Type in " fresh ". You will get the idea!

Hi, our problem was trying to fill the fresh water. Using the end of the hose at home, the water would just spill out, so we got a smaller tube that extended into the tank more. When we have a add water in a camp site that does supply water, we have to use a 5 gal jug with a funnel with a long attachment that fits into the hose opening. It is gravity fed so you have to have to pour your water from the 5 gal jug from above the opening. It is crazy what we paid for the RV to have this kind of issues. Should not be so difficult. Our is a 2017 Sunseeker Motorhome.

Our fill tube goes up then down inside. Had to get one of the extensions for the hose to fill the tank. Plastic and flexible so you can get past the bends inside the rv. Found one at Wally World for just a few dollars.
