I have had this problem a lot. My tank is small, and the vent is right over the tapered end of the tank. Even if I didn't overfill that tank a spirited sail seems to be enough to clog the tube. I have made it a routine to reverse flush the vent line
every time I pump
out. This seems to be working so far... Use some old battery cable or similar stiff wire to clear any obstructions. Yummy...
