07 Tourmaster freshwater tank overflow?

I have a 2007 Gulfstream tour master
My other other motor homes had an overflow pipe for the freshwater tank,
That's how I knew the tank was full.
Does anyone know how to tell on the 07 Tourmaster When the freshwater tank is full. I cannot find an overflow valve or pipe anywhere.
The other day I almost blew up the tank I over filled it.
I hope someone has an answer. Thanks Mike

That is really odd. The tank should have an overflow which also will act as a vent. Perhaps the vent pipe is plugged?

Perhaps you can contact the Gulfstream service to find out. service@gulfstreamcoach.com

Yes
You're right. Except that is 14 inches higher. It's also used to fill the tank by putting a house inside the inch and half opening. This coach has the fill by the sewer compartment and a second one up to the left of the compartment. It's in a 6 inch by 6 inch door with lock. Here there is a vent i guess and a hook up for hose fill.

Inside the water fill door, is there a small hole (vent) at the bottom center? That should be connected to the tank vent. Perhaps the vent line is kinked or closed off. You could try putting a coat hanger wire down the vent to see if it's open. Be sure to fold the wire over so it doesn't have a sharp points to snag or poke a hole in the hose.

I have that and water come out of there when the tank is getting full not enough to prevent the tank from bursting.
Is that the only way you know the tank is full?
In my other coach when it was full water just came out of the hose at the bottom and you could never overflow the tank.

Or simply blow air down the vent line.

If the tank is visible inside a compartment, you could visually monitor. Because you are putting water in under pressure, you can overfill the tank because the vent line isn't big enough to handle the flow. I fill until I see water at the vent then quit.

Hi Mike,
I hope you got your water tank problem fixed.
I have a 2006 Tour Master 40. I haven't seen any on the road. How about you? They seem scarce.
Jamie

If i have it on auto start when the batteries drained, it will start automatically but won't shut off.
Also this coach has 4 extra bstteries in the front which run the full size fridge thru the inverter. Whem i'm plugged in to AC , do i turn inverter off or just leave it alone

The inverter is for when you're on the road and want the fridge or coffee maker or other low draw appliance to run. At least that's what I use it for.
