Personally, I'll turn the water on for a few minutes, then shut it off and let it vent. Repeat until full. Takes longer, but I know I'm =full= when I leave. Getting one of those cheap meters off Amazon can't hurt, so you =know= how much water has gone in.

My procedure is the same as Lyle's. I fill till it burps the first time. I then shut it off for a few minutes till it vents then resume. The only problem with that is time. When we camp at New York state Parks, we fill up on the way in to the campground. If I am holding up traffic, it drives me nuts to fiddle with the tank.

wow, I wonder what genius thought of a system like the rocket described.

I never had the pleasure of getting sprayed like some described - bet it was cus I was standing by the faucet or nearby to shut the water off.


Dave! That's what I did wrong! Thanks
