I had one of those camco things but it broke. My regular white water hose from wally world fits right in the opening, easy peasy. But, here lately all I have to do to fill my water tank is turn on the water pump while hooked up to city water. I guess that is one advantage of a weak check valve.

I have never seen a fresh water tank filler opening that didn't easily take a standard hose end. What model Thor do you have? My Windsport will accept a hose end with the quick release. I just stick it in and let it fill until water is coming out of the vent hole.

You aren't trying to fill the generator exhaust pipe are you?

Our filler is very high up on the side of the RV. Is it possible that something in the opening that you can't see is preventing the hose from fitting in the filler?

Never, in the history of rv's.
We'll need a picture.

And:
You make a funnel of folds of tin foil.

Or
You cut the bottom from a water or soda bottle

Or
You sacrifice the hose, cut the end off, and buy a replacement end for 3 bucks if and when you need a replacement end.

Or

Ask the people next to you in the camp for help.
