Fresh tank fill .FORCE

2015.force BH.
Tried to fill our fresh tank at a koa with a good flow rate on their hookup. Took 40 plus mins to get 2/3 full
Had hose hooked up to the fill on the left in the bay with fill.valve in the open position under the filter. Is there something I am missing

I would guess by filling it through the filler valve in the wet bay it would run through a pressure regulator valve installed in the hose reel? Or ?? whereas the gravity filler is not restricted therfore would fill faster.

Honestly, I haven't gotten that far yet... but its my guess. May not be a pressure regulator at all.. but at any rate, you have less resistance filling directly into holding tank.

Yes, that has been a topic of conversation. The city water fill valves (behind the hook up) seem to be smaller diameter than the hose hooking to it. We buy that part and have asked them to increase diameter for better flow. (at least 3/4") and make sure the vents match at at least 3/4".
