Hot water tank

Irst time out camping in travel trailer ever. All went well, looks like we didn't forget anything. We have the hot water tank on electic and the tank was filled but we always seem to have air in the hot water tap with the water. Cold is fine.
What am I doing wrong?

Congrasts on the new camper!
You just need to purge the air out. Leave the hot tap open for a few minutes until it stops spitting air.

I have found the best way to get all of the air out of the water heater is to open the pop off valve & then turn the pump on until air stops coming out, then you can close the pop off valve. (you access this from the out side)

is it all ur faucets or just one?
my sink did that for 6 months. was also getting a few drops of water under the sink. finally determined the water was coming from a crack in the mixing area of the faucet (not from around the top of the faucet and going between the faucet and sink).
changed faucet, problem disappeared for a couple yrs. when it started sputtering again, it was also a crack in the mixing area of the new faucet.
i don't understand it, but it did happen.
none of the other faucets sputtered.
