Fresh Water Filler Spout "Spits"

Here's a weird one. It's 104 inside our 1971 Ambassador. Everytime I walk through the kitchen, stepping over where I believe is the fresh water tank, it spits water out of the filler. The funny thing... I thought the tank was pretty well empty.

Any suggestions?

It's not been a good weekend... the air conditioner also died... compressor is good, but the blower conked out... I think it's the bearings. *sigh*

Hello ayresdream! It is heartening seeing how many Airstreams are based in Canada and using the Forums. Welcome aboard!

My Argosy's above floor water tank is nothing like your '71 Ambassador. So help me out here -- at your water filler, is there a 2nd small vent opening to allow air to leave the tank? Can you say if the water is shooting out the latter or the main fill tube? And how full is your water tank when this happens? Thanks!

The water is gushing out of the filler spout. The cap is missing (probably lying somewhere along I-25) in Colorado. According to the gauge, it's a full tank.
