Fresh Water Overflow

Is there an overflow on the fresh water tank? Was filling the tank to sanitize the system, the gauge read full, but it sounded like it was still filling. Looked under the coach and only saw the tank drain.

Tank sensors are not very accurate and if you keep filling, the tank will eventually overflow out the drain.

Yes, there is an overflow. It's on the passenger side just in front of the rear wheel. It is a "duckbill" type fitting that sticks down just below the compartment. Here is a photo from when I installed my SeeLevel system. The overflow is the large white pipe on the left and as you can see you really have to overfill the tank for it to overflow.

Lt Dan,
Were you able to connect the sealevel system into the spyder system or do you have a separate monitor? Did you also put a display in the wet bay?

Yes, Spyder makes a conversion kit that includes the connectors and a card to flash program the Spyder panel to read exact percentages. You have to install a SeeLevel RVC display in the wet bay which is then connected to the Spyder network. The only quirk I have is the propane level fluctuates between 100% and the actual amount. I've been in contact with both SeeLevel and Spyder and neither one of them could figure out what causes that. I even tied the LP level sensor directly to the SeeLevel monitor and it still did the same thing. If you don't have propane that wouldn't be an issue. They are also now making a 709 RVC NLP display which doesn't have a LPG reading for those that don't have propane. They didn't have that when I ordered mine over a year ago, so I may bite the bullet and change the display panel.

Great pic LtDan.
You saved me the trouble of pulling that panel to peek in behind it.
It looks like it's attached with 4 90 degree brackets and screwed in with phillips heads screws.
