Filling water tank Issue

2008 Forest River was dewinterized in the spring by a rv repair place. Whenever I try to fill the water tank since the dewinterize it spits back out. Any suggestions. Help please

Likely a clogged vent

I suspect the issue is the vent is blocked. Either the screen (usually next to fill port) is corroded/blocked or a pinched line. I had to clean the vent screen on our prior 2008. I used a wire brush and a hand vac.

Use a piece of cut off garden hose or washing machine hose. Stick it in the fill port as far as possible, hopefully 18 inches or so. This often takes care of the burping problem. Good luck!
