It sounds like you need to to set the fill valves.

Yep, those tubing going from the lower to upper tank is very small compared to the big gravity fill tubing, so it will be slow from city water. You would be similarly slow if you tried to fill both tanks through the inside tank fill port in the rear as it would use the same plumbing.

The gas tank fills much easier, if you can get the front of the van to be nose down. This can be done if the ground at the station is not level, or you can pull up onto a set of your leveling blocks.
