2018 Forester ds3011
I cannot get bleach in, it keeps pushing it out. I have a 1 foot tube and still no luck. This is a horrible design where the intake is almost horizontal when I fill it with water half of it comes out while filling.

"The Note" a 2018 Forester DS3011
Are we saying that a 2018 Forester motorhome, uses a fill port to the fresh water tank as opposed to a connector direct to an attached water hose to fill the fresh water tank under pressure from a tap like at a campground or your own house?

Yep, I spill more than what goes into the tank
waiting for a slow time when I can replace the ribbed fill hose with a smooth hose and run a better air escape hose.
this was a terrible after thought from the factory, they really need to come up with something better.
I have had the same problem with the water fill port. Take the one foot tube you are using to fill and place it over the screened vent beside the fill port and blow into the vent. The vent maybe clogged and water is backing up when trying to fill.
I have a 2016 3011 and agree they could have done a better job with the water fill for the tank. Took me a little while to remember that this is gravity fill and water does not run uphill! Once I got that figured out I turned the RV around in my street such that the water fill was street side and above the water tank so filling was much better. I also use a long clear hose to fill which goes further down the fill hose and enables me to turn on water at full pressure. The only issue I've had since was at my sisters house trying to fill it on a steep incline.
PS. When winterizing I actually take the hose off the tank under the bed and put the bleach directly into the tank that way I'm not getting bleach on me or the outside of the RV.
