Fresh Water Fill Issues 2021 Caravel 20FB

I filled tank this weekend, and while I thought it was 100%(didn't seem to take anymore water although it was not gushing out the overfill vent), I believe i was only about 60-70% full, ran out after 2 days and had to fill with 5 gal containers. When I did refill, I put 3- 5 gallon containers, which on a 28 gallon fresh water tank should have registered about 55 % but it was at 75%. I do remember somewhere I read there was an issue with the fill and I bought a 12 inch flexible fill hose for my water hose to extend further down in the fill tube. Has anyone else experienced this?

Thanks for the correction. Not sure where you got the 28 gallons, as the online specs here say 23 gallons for the 20FB:

In any event, this is a great floor plan and model . . . glad that AS has retained this basic "pocket cruiser" for 2021.

Happy trails,
