Water leaking

Quick question I have water dripping from the bottom of my coach. The water is coming from one of the three hoses hanging from the freshwater tank. The water isn't coming from the 2 hoses that have a cap on them but rather from the hose that just has a mesh screen cover on it. If I follow the hose up its a clear hose about 1 inch thick that has water going through it. What is it and why do I need to do. Thanks in advance.

Sounds like the overflow hose from your water tank. Did you just fill with water?

No I didn't just fill it up. I was connected to city water.

Hi, I know of 3 other people including myself that have the same issue; the city water is slowly filling the freshwater tank and is coming out the overflow. Mine is in the shop for it now, they seem to think it is the water pump itself letting water back into the fresh water tank. Only happens once in a while and then ‘fixes itself’. I just use the pump and shut off the city water when it happens, takes 2 to 3 days to over fill from city water.

I suppose on a side note you could leave the fw drain valve open so that it doesn't fill up "Justin case"

you can turn the valve just down from the pump its and the white hose. just turn it and it will not fill up. when you use the fresh water tank just turn the valve so you have water. That's what I do and have no issues at all.

The white tube with mesh on the end is the fresh water tank vent. It can overflow when being filled or will leak from the water slooshing around during travel. It can at times syphon the water right out the tank. I added a 1" PVC Valve to it. I close it during travel and open it when we want to use the water from the tank.

It sounds like the fresh water vent from what everyone is saying. My question is that this has never happened before when connected to city water. Does the tank actually fill up when connected to city water? I thought the lines just fill up since it a constant draw of water. I'm confused now. Lol.
