250RKS - where is the overflow outlet for the fresh water tank

Hi everyone -

Can someone point me to the location of the overflow outlet on the 250RKS? I was not able to find when I was crawling around under the unit. I did see the low point for the hot and cold water lines, as well as the drain valve for the fresh water tank.

A picture also would be appreciated.

Many thanks as always!

If it's like my ORV 25RDS it's right next to the fill inlet. Should be a small 1/2" or so hole next to the hole you put the hose in.

Now if you're meaning the drain for the fresh tank it should be almost directly across from the fill port only underneath the TT. Should be a larger round white pipe hanging down from the black bottom cover. There should be a pull bar located sorta inline with the fill port and dump pipe.

On my F26RLS, I believe there is a small (3/8" +/-) vent line that is "tee'd" back into the fill line just past the fresh water fill inlet. If you fill to much, it overflows out the fill port. I use a small piece of 1/2" vinyl hose about 12" long, attached to the end of my freshwater hose when filling my tank. The smaller hose helps to maintain the venting when filling. I also fill at a slow rate.

Thanks everyone - I did not see the little hole next to the fill port but I was not actively looking for it. I do remember seeing some images when I looked at the fill port on the internet (not mounted in the trailer, just a generic fill port), and will inspect things more closely when I go to tale delivery.

Little hole next to fill port would be tank vent not overflow

Overflow should be 1/2" PEX pipe

Like mentioned use a 1/2" hose with a shutoff valve. That way you can shut the water off at the fill and not have to go over to the faucet. The 1/2" hose will allow space around the fill tube and let more air escape when filling.

I don't have an "overflow" per se on my fresh water in my new 250. There is only the fill vent by the fill cap and the fresh dump with the valve pull in front of the driver's side axle.

Thanks. You have a sister unit so mine is probably the same as yours.

BTW, how is yours holding up? My special order unit was rejected and they had another similar unit on the lot which I am supposed to get in January. The last three of the VIN is 401 for the replacement unit. Other then a few weird things, the unit seems well built.

I will see what it looks like when I go in to complete the purchase on January 7. If all's up to snuff, I will buy the unit. If not, then I am just going to head off into the sunset and revisit this whole decision when I really really retire whenever that is!

I hope this other unit works out for you - I am really happy with mine. I bought in November, have spent 2 weeks in it and like it more each time I head out. I have over 1,500 miles on it with zero issues. I think I mentioned to you previously that my only disappointment is the electric fireplace - does not put out much heat. I have found another funny/challenging quirk. The remote for the Furrion stereo has some shared frequencies with the remote for the fireplace. So every now and then you get a surprise when you are trying to control one or the other! LOL

Here's to hoping you get your new rig!! Hope your holidays are fantastic as well!

Glad to hear you are having a good time! I am looking forward to picking my unit up on January 7...and then placing it in storage till the spring!

Ditto on both my ORV's......and every other RV I've owned.
