Question over flowing galley tank

Hi,We just bought a 2005 Montana 5th wheel and after a day or so a repairman told us the tank was full for some reason,seemed to early for just showers,and it was leaking from the "vent".If this is so why is it filling so quickly and what should we do to remedy the situation.The other tanks work fine so what could be causing us to have to empty this everyother day.I'm mechanical and can fix most thing but am facing reconstruction surgery on my knee next week.We need some good advice to fix this problem now.Thank you in advance.

This may or may not help but;
We used to own a 2005 Everest 5th wheel from Keystone and it had 3 separate tanks and 3 separate handles to pull to empty them.
The galley tank was VERY small which is why we ended up buying a blue tote to empty it every 3 days...You might be experiencing some of the same things.
I believe ours had a 25 gal. galley tank.

Two things. Montanas have a separate dump handle for the galley tank, usually located behind the wheels on the street side protruding from the frame. It's small.

Second, since you bought a Montana, join the Montana Owners Club, its free and tone of info there. Montana and Mountaineer Owners Campsite in Cyber Space

I have a 03 Montana 5th and I dont see how the Galley could be leaking at the vent. Did they mean the Black tank? The sink would back up first. I was at the beach a few weeks back. The campground set up a camper accross from me. They hooked the hose to the sprays input for the black tank by mistake and it came out the vent on the roof. They had to wash it. Mine has three tanks and yes the shower can fill up quick. I normally leave it open until the day before ready to leave. Make sure you have the hose hooked to the right inout.
