Water Leak when filling Tank with hose

1987 Southwind, when I fill the water with a hose if it back up the fill hose from the tank water will spill into the wall of the RV on the inside getting on the wood flooring behind the wall, etc... The overflow hose mounted to the tank is not blocked and flows fine, I checked it out. Is there a vent at the top of the filler that the water might leak out of if overfilled or does it sound like a broken hose? I could baarely see it because of it being behind the wall but I did see the water shoot out of it when I tested it. I would imagine you could only access it from the outside. thanks for any help on this.

Many times the only way to figure out what's going on might be to remove the screws attaching the filler to the wall. That should allow you to pull it out, hoses still attached, to inspect and repair/replace as required.
