Water filler
Anybody done the same was filling the water tank ready for a weekend away happily aiming the hose at the filler spout when an almighty roar from the boss you idiot your flooding the bleeding cupboard. That can’t be I said I’m outside with the hose you must be off your rocker but sure enough she was right again. See photos what is the reason for this fitting

Surely that breather should have a pipe on it connected to the tank, otherwise it’s not breathing.

I find that appalling! Whoever fitted the filler just couldn’t be bothered to do it properly. Wonder if it’s an original fitting, or a replacement? Is there a breather pipe somewhere, waiting to pour water where it shouldn’t go?

If the breather pipe hasn't fallen off and there is one elsewhere, has a previous owner changed the inlet unaware that if no breather connected it should have been blanked off.

Its a 2019 vehicle and my 2010 vehicle has the same set up just different type of inlet. Looking on Google any water filler unit has the same, I suspect ALL of ours is the same.

If you put hosepipe fairly well into filler hose start filling if it doesn't blowback you will have a vent somewhere - just find where water comes from
