Water drip from overflow

Why would water drip from the overflow tube? It's slow and negligible but it does drip.
I'm just curious.

Ken

If you are talking about the overflow tube for fresh water tank and you are hook up to city water then you have a slight leak pass the check valve internal to water pump. Disconnect city water, turn on water pump and cold faucet for one minute. Turn water pump off and faucet, reconnect city water and see if it will leak again. Might have to do a few times.

Where is this 'overflow' tube?
It's not one of the AC drip tubes is it?

If you are on city water switch to the onboard and run a few gallons out of the FW tank into the black tank.

Thanks to everyone for the reply I did every
thing suggested and it appears to be coming from the drain valve which is shut closed. so I'm wondering if it's got a leak in the washer and it's a good thing that I was investigating this cuz the dear wife overflowed the gray water and I believe it overflowed into the water bay

KennyGolub,

Last year the same leak happened to me. I had drained the Fresh Water tank and when I refilled it the valve did not seal completly. You can purchase the replacement and all sorts of fittings from this site:
iPlumb.tv - PEX Fittings Flair It Bulk
I stocked up on a bunch of potential replacement items plus a couple of those wrenches made for these fittings.

GOOD LUCK

Just an update, now that i'm home again and took a little time to investigate.

It appears I have a water leak when the city water is connected. (Yes, I do have a regulator). It's not a real bad leak, but I have to keep mopping up water in the water bay to keep it dry.

On the list for Goshen.

Kenny,
Check the fittings on the outside shower. You can reach behind the white wall in front of it and see if the fittings are loose. I had a problem when I first winterized my coach a couple of months after I picked it up. When I pumped the pink antifreeze through, some leaked out from the area where the shower head is. I too had them look at it at last years Goshen rally and the tech said that it was just the fitting that was slightly loose. He reached his hand in and snugged it up and it has been fine since then.
Just a thought as you may have the same problem.
Couldn't hurt to take a look.
Tom

I'll look. Yesterday, I tried to remove the inlet for city water by removing the three screws on it, but I couldn't get behind it. If I can find the opening you're talking about, that will be great.

Thanks !!

Ken

Ken,
To reach the outside shower, you would need to get your hand in by where the sewer drain is.
