Re: fresh water tank vent

Can you blow air through the line from the tank end when it is off the tank? If not try pushing a smaller diameter line through to check for foreign material in the line. I have heard of insects nesting in the vent lines and blocking them.
If you can blow through the line from the tank end when off I don't know what could stop air flow unless when it is connected it gets kinked.
Good luck.
