I have a 2002 Coachmen Mirada 300QB Class A. This rig has Coachmen's Water Works Utility Panel which, among other things, allows you to fill the fresh water tank through the city water inlet. I would assume that there is a vent/overflow line off the top of the tank that ends somewhere outside. I am thinking that maybe it ties into the outboard side of the fresh water tank drain line. Can anyone clear this up for me? Thanks!


Cheers

It is a dedicated overflow that comes out of the top of the freshwater tank. In fact, there are probably two (there are two on my Coachmen Class-C.) If you have access to the tank, you can clearly see them.

They are totally independent of the freshwater tank drain line (which on my coach is actually the supply line to the FW pump), or the low point drains.

They come out of the top of the tank, make a 90* turn, and terminate at two pipes protruding from beneath the coach. The terminal ends of mine are blue.

when I fill my fresh water tank brim full, and park with the right rear corner in a low spot, I immediately discover where My overflow comes out.

Yes... It is a dedicated overflow. It won't hurt anything. Unless it flows into your campground. I fill it to the brim all the time. let it overflow, its a gentle reminder it's time to turn off the water. I find my wife's reaction to this practice "Priceless"

I just have say "Thank You".

It's refreshing to have someone actually acknowledge that they have even returned to the thread they started and then, to have them thank you for your information or advice...that's almost unprecedented around here.
