Exclamation 1995 Safari Sahara plumbing schematics

I recently bought a 1995 Safari Sahara and I am learning as I go.
The latest thing I am trying to figure out is there is an overflow drain, I thinking, that has water going out of it. It is probably 4 feet beyond the kitchen toward the driving area. I do not know why there is water draining out of it. If I shut off the outside supply (potable) it stream stops. I have tried to find if anything is leaking and I cannot find anything. Does anyone know anything that might help?

Can you actually see a tube of some sort under there with water draining out of it? The first thing that comes to mind is an overflow tube from the freshwater tank, but it would be very unusual for one to be that far toward the front. If that's what it is, the transfer valve that switches the freshwater input from house plumbing to the freshwater storage tank could be defective, continueing to fill the tank even though switched to house plumbing.

I would agree with Joe in his post above. Likely a leaking, bypassing fill valve overfilling the fresh water tank.
No rhyme or reason to where they are located.

Look underneath and see where the water is coming from and then look in the bays for perhaps a low point drain that is leaking or ? ?

Found the leak

Thank you for those who got back to me. And you were right it was the overflow valve for the fresh water tank. I finally got inside the crawlspace and we started looking at every single pipe. It ended up be some one had not turned a valve all the way closed, so it was filling the tank and running out. Glad it was simple once we figured it out. So far all fixes have been of this nature, something lose. I have lots to learn but getting there. Thanks again JB
