I suffered filling our RV tank with this stupid jug for years. The cap doesn't seal so it leaks, and the spout attachment is very flimsy, so the spout invariably pops out and falls in the dirt whenever you use the jug to fill a tank even if you are careful. Did I mention that the air relief plug pops loose and falls out? (In the dirt, of course). If you loosen it to relieve the vacuum in the jug prior to filling your RV tank, the air rushing in through the hole sucks the cap back in. This is about the only time when the stupid cap seals tightly - when you want it open. If you're alone and yield to temptation and reach out with one hand to try and pull the stupid air relief plug out while dumping the jug you will certainly either drop the plug in the dirt, or the spout will pop free, and go..in...the....dirt. The last time I used ours the the spout popped free of the jug and I dropped the whole works spout first. This impact sheared the flimsy plastic all around the spout threads. At first I swore, but then I realized that I was going to have to finally replace this awful jug and for SURE I would not be buying this model AGAIN. This time I'm going to pay extra for the Scepter 5-Gallon Water Can, even though it costs more, it can't be worse. Buy this jug because you like dirt with your potable water.
