Not sure how long this plastic attachment will hold up, but probably for a while if I am careful...
Word of advice. Put a hose clamp on the clear hose to secure it to the valve. Ask me why.

Mine came with one. How did you get the tube out of the tank?

My '87 Excella has a vent hole in the filler area - until I was shown it, I never would have suspected it to be there.



Here it is with the vent "closed" Notice how the plug blocks the vent.




What I use for filling the fresh water tank is an attchment I boought a number of years ago at Camping World
