Fresh water fill

2002 40 ft Travel Supreme. I am new to coach with water/dump bay area and valve operation. When I fill my fresh water it runs out of two hoses ( i understand low point hoses) but after I disconnect incoming water, they continue to drain until tank is empty. What configuration should valves be in??

Not sure I understand. Are you saying that the water from the fresh water tank is leaking onto the ground or that it is coming out of your waste water tank onto the ground?

The water goes from the inlet through the tank and out the drain lines. Maybe I am just not finding the drain cutoff valves

Unless there is a cracked fitting somewhere, it sounds like the drain is open. Maybe another TS owner can advise on where it is. Most (but not all) coaches have a separate fresh tank drain valve, but a few use the low point drains for that.

That does seem the most likely possibility, my drain hose petcock was located under a pullout drawer, took a while to find. If you can see where the approximate location under the motorhome that the water is draining from, it would at least put you in the general vicinity.

My fifth wheel has a low point drains with screw in caps. Check the lines for threads which could mean you need to screw a cap on.
