Dry camping

Drill a 3/8 inch hole in the floor to let any water out that might over flow. Then pull overflow tube up above the tank. If it overflows water goes out the 3/8 hole. But it won't siphon out !! The hole left in the floor where you pull your overflow hose up will also drain any water that come out the tube. Just sand off all the excess silicon sealant that's there.

Then cut a 8" or 10" hole in the wall between the water compartment & the storage compartment. Then you can open the door in storage look right at the water tank and watch it fill. Too hard to unsnap the water compartment door. I'll attach a pic of the hole I cut.

In the pic you can tell that my water tank is empty. And I also have a lid that you can screw into the hole to close it up if you would want to.

Obviously there is a leak somewhere before the pump but most likely at the inlet of the pump. It needs to be found so the system works before your next dry camp outing. I always check everything before I leave home

My Berk has a spot cutout looks like from the factory to me, so you can see the fresh water tank. It's in the water manifold bay and let's me see when the tank is full.

Simple stuff first. Is the valve used to winterize the pump and plumbing system fully closed? If you have it between positions, it will act just as you describe, yet the water doesn't run out of the tank. Been there done that on my previous Berk.
