How I did finally solve this problem. It is a very easy fix, Remove the drain line at the top of the fresh water tank, Remove the fitting at the top of the drain. Add about 4 or 5 feet of 1/2" plastic water line and loop it over the top of the water tank then bring it back to where the original drain comes out of the top of the tank. Make sure when you cross the 1/2" line the the return part of the water line in on the top of the one leaving the drain at the topof the tank. Then install a 90 degree elbow and drop it down to the hole going out to the road. This is a problem that Itasca and a few other motorhomes have had yet no one knows why??
Hope this will help you, I have helped 2 other people while travelling with the same problem, All Itascas. Miles of Smiles, Flaco

I had the same problem. It was the check valve on the water fill that had gone bad. It allowed the water in the tank to flow backward and come out of the water fill. I fixed the problem for about $35 and now I cap the fill with a screw on cap to prevent this from happening again. BTW it took 2 days with the basement doors open to dry out the basement
