We'll need a little more information. What is the camper? What have you tried already?

I assume fw tank .
And yes they fill slow but not two hours slow . Unless there's a problem.

Have you tried turning your water pressure down to a slow run and holding the hose near the inlet and not shoving the hose all the way in ?

It's a 2004 Georgetown motor home by Forest River. We tried turning on the cold water faucets while filling. We tried fillin the tank with all faucets closed. We tried filling the tank with the water heater by pass closed as well as open. Nothing has worked. It only filled two thirds full in 3 hours. Thank for any help. Please assume we are ignorant!

On this model, the hose screws into the tank fill line.

Have you tried removing the fill connection completely from the coach and seeing if the hose going into the tank is crimped or kinked?

Are you the original owner? What model # ? Check the vent tube for the fresh water tank. Ours is located in the propane compartment and looks like a pool filter hose. The original owner may have installed a valve to stop the syphon effect when traveling. If it's closed then you'll need to open it to allow the air to escape as you fill it. Another thing is there is a check valve in the fitting where you connect the water hose on the fresh water tank inlet. It may not be opening fully to allow the water in. Could be a build up of scaling from the years of use. Best to replace it if that's the problem.
