Fresh Water Tank
I have a 2014 Rockwood 8280WS fifth wheel. I have been on the road full time since April of last year. On average, I move campgrounds about every 4 days. I always use my fresh water tank/water pump as opposed to using the city water connection. I do this so my fresh water is always being "turned over". To get my fresh water tank completely filled, the air vent will blow air out from the tank. If the air does not come out, an air bubble is created in the tank thereby preventing a full tank. Over the past several months, there were times when the air would not vent out. This would happen maybe 1 out of every 5 times. I chalked it up to not being perfectly level which would cause the vent to go under water prior to venting the air. However, it has now not vented in the last 10 to 15 times. Remember, I moved about every 4 days so each filling is in a different campground with different leveling conditions (ie, slightly left, right, back or forth). One thought was the air vent has become detached. If so, I would think the tank would vent out the hole and create a watery mess somewhere. I'm thinking about removing the screen over the vent and running a small diameter hose down it to see what happens.
Has anyone run across this before? Any ideas?
