Fresh Water Tank Overflow

I wanted to fill up the Fresh Water tank all the way to the top. The directions said to fill until you see water flow out the overflow tube. I did not see any overflow tube protruding under the coach. So I started filling, while watching for water to come out from somewhere.

When the tank filled, I saw water coming from somewhere on top of the tank and then down the front of the tank, through the area where the front slide rail retracts, and then dripping off of the mud guard behind the front passenger tire.

Does anyone know if there is supposed to be an overflow tube running from the top of the tank to the bottom of the coach somewhere?

If there is supposed to be one and mine is missing, how much water should I drain from the tank before I take off on my trip?

Thanks for your help.

I don't think that you need to drain any water from the tank. If you haven't added any water to your black water tank, you can turn on the pump and use the tank to add a gallon or two. That will bring down the water level some. I'd call Winnebago Owner Relations. Have your serial number ready. They can tell you if you are missing an over flow tube or not.
