If you're getting water with the drain open, I'd investigate the vent line. If it's plugged, you may be putting water into the tank until the air in the tank compresses to city water pressure, then nothing else will go in.

Thanks. I'm not sure where the vent line is. I opened the compartment under the kitchen sink and found the tank line was kinked but straightening it didn't help. If it's not the vent line then perhaps it's a faulty valve, which someone had mentioned before. The fresh water tank shows 1/3 full from the day I got it till today.

We have a 2016 300 DS and I bet it's your valve for city water / tank fill. I think I would start there

Do you mean tank drain valve vs low point drain ( blue or red pex). If you are saying water flows when the tank drain valve is open, then the tank vent is plugged or kinked and air can't get out of the tank. Try opening a cold water faucet and then see if water flows when in the tank fill position, If so it is definitely the vent. Be careful if this is the case as connection to a high pressure source, you could expand and damage the tank.

Low point drain. I have not yet located the tank drain.
