I just picked up my '08 Salem 26tbss and during the inspections, one of the techs mentioned if traveling with a full tank, I may loose a 1/3 to 1/2 out of the overflow tube. He suggested I install a valve so that I can close while driving. Our first trip this last week confirmed this. After about 230 miles, upon arriving at our destination, we had about 1/2 to 2/3 of a tank. I guess I will install that valve.

I didn't notice any water coming from the fill connection.

My Wildcat will also lose water via the overflow while driving. The shut off valve works well to control this issue. My sensors on the tank are not too well located, and I am not sure of the amout of water I actually lose. If you are dry camping every ounce of water is critical. I never travel without some water in the tank. May want water while driving, and other reasons. In July we stayed at a State Park that had its water system contaminated by flood water --thus no potable water. Our tank was nearly full so we had no problem.

Water Spilling out

I have the same problem with my sunseeker 3120 Class C but not much water is spilling out. Maybe I overfilled it.
