fresh water tank gravity fill

we have a 2014 forest river hyperlite 30hfs5 toyhauler fw. when I try to add water, bleach etc to fresh water fill it will not run in! How can I add
to the tank from a water can for dry camping? Hard to believe that there is not an easy way to add bleach, antifreeze for normal maintenance. One post that I read says there is a spring loaded check valve?

can anyone help?

You have to have some pressure in order for the valve to open. Pour bleach into an empty water hose, connect it to the fill port, then open the water. That will push the bleach into the tank.

I don't know how your tank is positioned but our Palomini had the tank installed the wrong way. The result was the tanks inlet was 1 1/2" higher than the fill tube on the outside. It's probably not your problem but a quit check won't hurt.
