Ok had a chance to finally use the new 360...filled the water tank to one inch from the top (I took that black compartment cover off so I can see the tank and the pump) drove 260 miles and never lost a drop. Now I know where I can store my homemade beer.....if only I could keep it cold in there...LOL

filing fresh water tan

hi all.i have a 2012 378ts.i have done mod on vent line.i think vent line should not go into tank,this would solve alot of problems.i had a creek creek 5th wheel and it had the same problem.forestriver should get there head out of there [ [ and fix this problem,its not that tuff,but they choose to let us fix there mess ups????????? what i mean about vent line going into tank is it should be flush with top of tank.not inside.reminds me of the good old days when we would siphon gas for has to be on bottom? pete

This sounds like a nifty fix, but can you use water enroute without opening that gate valve? For example, filling a water bottle, flushing the toilet etc?

1" PVC Valve

Since I was losing water in my 2004 Georgetown XL I was happy to find the solution in this thread. When I went to Home Depot to buy the 1" shut off valve I was confused to find the right parts. Luckilly I had the 3" long hose I had cut off. I bought the 1" valve with the threads inside and used a 1" 2" long nipple which threaded inside the 1"" overflow hose perfectlly and the other end in the valve. If you want you can buy another nipple and connect the cut off 3" hose with the screen to the outlet end of the valve.
