Fresh water overflow line

Was wondering if anyone out there with a f285gslr could take a photo of where the overflow hose for the fresh water tank is located. Mine doesn't have one and would like to know where about to start my search so I don't have to cut the whole bottom up. Thanks!

You may not have an actual overflow/vent hose out the bottom, check next to the fill connection and see if there is a hole with a screen over it. Just a thought I don't know your actual rig

There is supposed to be one. If I fill my tank too full it leaks out the underbelly.

fill your tank and see what happens. It should flow out on the ground when full. It will be a clear or white hose with no valve on the end.

There are quite a few variants of this, but most work the same way. The overflow is almost always collocated with the fill. In the attachment, the little screen at the bottom left is the overflow.

The hose out the bottom or side (low point drain) is almost always the hose to empty the tank.

When I fill my tank it drains out from the underbelly soaking all the insulation in the process.

Just for the record, this is my 6th rv. The last 4 have been toy haulers. All of them with had the same fill port as you have pictured as well as an over flow attached to the fresh water tank.

Well, that's a horse of a different color. and not a good color. It should be on one of the sides of the tank. The hose may have disconnected or never got connected in the first place..

Sounds like the overflow hose came off check line from the inside where it fills your water tank

I believe I read another thread in the last couple of weeks in which it was reported that the overflow hose wasn't connected or was loose or something. Do you suppose the same worker repeated the mistake?
