Heating ducts flooded

We were filling up our fresh water tank today and water started flooding in from the heater vents on the floor. Also the storage bays underneath were flooded from the ducts.

Any clues where I would look for the leak?

flood !!!

Hi, About all you can do is follow the water lines. I can't imagine that the factory installed water lines inside the ductwork . If you turn on the pump BRIEFLY you may be able to hear it spraying .Good luck wish I could be more help.

Take heart.. If you have heated tanks,, And it sounds like you do.. Odds are very good the water in the ducts ran down and out the tank side heater vent and is now on the ground.

Check it out.. Otherwise it's going to get kind of moist in there when the furnace engages.

I took it to a shop today. They filled it and couldn't find a leak. So it's a total mystery.

I think it was overfilled, but we overfilled it today and the water just came out of the overflow. Pretty weird.

Mine floods both inside and out when I overfill.. Also sets off the propane alarm (It floods down on the alarm) if the ice maker hose leaks or the solenoid freezes and thaws.

Major mess

But the heat ducts just drain down into the wet bays and onto the ground from there.

Out of curiosity, where does the tank overflow come from ... I.E., where is the exit point from the tank?
