2004 Triple E Fresh Water Tank Problem

Have a 2004 EEE 35ft MH. Problem I am having is when I fill the fresh water tank it continues to run out of the overflow until it is about HALF FULL. It has just started to 'drain down' and always filled and stayed full before.
Any ideas would be welcome.
Thanks.

I have access to my fresh water tank and can see the inlet into the tank and water level in the tank, its all down hill. If your inlet pipe extends into the tank and down it may be siphoning out. If the vent pipe is plugged you may be getting air pressure pushing the water back out. Each of these possibilities would argue that the inlet is or has become some how extended below the top of the tank. Have you tried burping the tank as you fill it?

Thanks for the reply, but I am not quite sure what you mean or how to 'burp' the tank.

What I meant by burping was to partially fill the tank, pull your fill hose out and allow air to escape, perhaps rocking the MH/trailer. for the water you are putting in to siphon back out the fill something is not right. The Fill inlet should be at the top of the tank and not extending down into the tank where it can be covered by water, allowing it to siphon back out.

I have a 2000 3505GS Commander by Triple E.

I would check the overflow hose to make sure

1) it has not slipped back down into the fresh water tank.

2) the end of the hose is lower than the top of the tank.

I have the same setup and I always let the fresh water tank overflow so that I know that it is full.
