Somewhere there may be a high point in the system that has air in it... possibly a shower head. Find it and run all the air out.

Also the fresh water tank can get air trapped in it by sloshing around during towing.... but not that much.

Possibly the uptake side of the water pump (if it's in use) has an air leak and is sucking air in along with the water.

Same issue using city water or pump?

If pump only......suction side of pump is sucking air in


Is it time for your medication or mine?

There is usually a strainer just before the pump. It has a plastic bowl that unscrews to clean out. If it is not emptied when winterizing, it will freeze and crack. The pump will suck in air through the crack.

Just happened to my new to me TT during our maiden voyage. Couldn't figure out why wate/air kept spurting out. Got home and decided to put more water in the tank....problem solved [emoticon] .
