If there is a "droop" in the vent line, you will have an air lock and it will not allow water to be added. If you can, blow through the vent line to see if it is clear or you hear any gurgling. Mine had air locks in both fill and vent lines. Had to remove the belly cover to fix both lines.

Shouldn't be a check valve in the fw fill or vent.

It seems that I will need to remove the underbelly also to figure this one out. I only boondock a few times a year so it's not a major issue but I just want it available when I need it. Thanks for all of yalls replies. Much appreciated.

I will probably not tackle it until spring but I certainly will let y'all know the conclusion. Thanks again.

You have water in your vent line. Just blow the vent line back into the tank.
