Hi all...I have a 2003 Dutch Star. I recently sanitized my fresh water tank. I drained the tank...refilled with the proper amount of chlorinated water. I filled the tank and then instead of the water JUST coming out of the overflow (as it has in the past).....the water cme pouring out of all different areas of the basement. The carpet got completely soaked.

OH YEahhhhhhh. and then I drained it refilled to rinse and guess what..same thing happened...You think I would have learned!

Happened to anyone else? I'm thinking there is a leak between the overflow and the tank.

If there is.. can I fix it?

Thanks in advance...Enjoy your adventures this summer...............Fritzo

Did you check between the two tanks there is a 1 1/4" pipe between tanks may have popped pipe off one of the tanks. If over flow tube is plugged may have popped that off tank.
