Fresh Water Tank Overflow

I just had my coach back to the dealer because it appeared that the fresh water tank overflow was missing. When I filled the tank up to the top and was looking for water to start coming out the bottom of the coach somewhere, I saw water dripping down over the front ram of the passenger slide and then down just behind the front wheel. This did not look right to me. I checked the manual and they indicated that there was an overflow tube that went down to the bottom of the coach somewhere.

The service rep came back and said that they found the overflow tube and that it went down to the area above the front passenger slide ram just like I had indicated.

Has anybody with a 40WD seen this same thing? Or should there be a tube all the way to the bottom of the coach? I am concerned that water may get into the coach somehow if it does not go all the way to the bottom.

Bill, the overflow is working. The underside of your coach is sealed and no water flowing down from the top of a tank is going to harm anything. Those tanks are sealed and protected. Your coach gets blasted with water when you drive in the rain without getting into the coach!
