Thanks for the info. I did put a PVC elbow into the tank. I had to grind it to press fit in. It has been a few months so I can't remember what size I actually used. At the time, I didn't realize I had a broken fill line, we were loaded heading to Mid-Ohio for the AMA Vintage weekend. I made due with the cracked fill line by using it as a tube to guide a garden hose down to the tank to fill it.
I will need to crawl under there and fix the fill line during winter. Thanks for all the info, been a big help.

In my trailer if you open the cabinet under the sink the inside of the cabinet opens up to the right and gives you a little room to look and work.
I pulled the fresh water hatch off the outside of the trailer and was able to feed the hose from under the trailer up through the area beside the cabinet and out the fill whole.
I then attached the hose to the fill hatch, and replaced it with caulking to reseal it, and then went under the trailer and gently pulled a little of the extra hose back through the bottom of the trailer.
Putting it on the water tank is a little hard as it didn't want to slide very easily and the filler neck off the tank points to the bottom of the trailer and the hose has to do a 90 degree bend to go on.
I am thinking when I put my new tank in of possible trying to put an elbow on the tank to make it a little easier.
