Are fresh water tanks vented? When I fill mine, after a little bit the water starts backing out from the filler. When I remove the hose, there's lots of gurgling, and then a gush of water comes out. It seems to me there's a back pressure problem.

Welcome Steven K to irv2
Your tank should have a vent either next to your filler tube or a vent out top of your water tank. The vent maybe plugged in which ever case.
I would check the top of tank and see if you may have a kink in the vent some where.
Its a 05 TT so has it been doing it all along.
As the heat of summer the vent maybe crushed under something.
Enjoy the forums and do post often.

Thanks for your help. I found a kink in the vent hose. Straightened out the hose, fixed the problem! Thanks again!
