While on a recent trip where I would be dry camping for a few days I attempted to fill the water tank. In the past I would fill the tank until water came out the overflow tube then stop. This time when I turned off the water to the coach the overflow continue to drain water all the way down to the 2/3 light. I tried to fill it again and the same thing happened. Water was not draining anywhere else.

What the heck happend here? Anyone know?

We have a 36' 1999 Tropical.

I believe this is what Richard S was referring to:
Water Tank Syphoning
