Wow too funny. Mine didn't have the vent hose installed either. Hope to get it installed this weekend before may long trip. If I do I'll post up some pics for all the others who need to do the same!

By the way glad to hear you enjoyed the new trailer. Looks like a pretty nice campground.

You guys need to be contacting your respecting dealers and the factory.
They need to know about these things so they can FIX the problem.
if they don't know about it how can they fix it for future buyers.

Nice camp ground! Might toodle down that way sometime!

I'm not sure that's possible but I've been wrong atleast once today.
Id contact another dealer and for sure the factory and get another opinion.

Any corner they can cut that saves them a buck just helps their bottom line. This is more true in todays world than ever. I probably should have called the dealer but in my case the dealer is 180 miles away and decided to just do it myself. I don't have much faith in them anyway. Unless it is a serious problem, I would rather do it myself and know it's done right.

on the plate where you fill up your water tank is a small hole with a screen over it - this is the vent/overflow. I can access the other side of mine inside the bathroom cabinet under the sink- YMMV of course.

On the tank itself near the top edge, (under the trailer but near where the fill hose connects on the side) I have a hose barb on the tank with nothing attached.

Not sure pics would help much...hard to take pics of something that's not there...sorta like taking pictures of noises.

Canadian Camper. If you can see the end of the water tank underneath where the fill hose goes in look towards the top of the rank and you should see a black elbow fitting installed (hopefully) in the top end of the tank. There "should" be a hose coming off that tee and going up t o the fill panel. If not, join the "overflow running water" club. Pretty shabby work IMO!!
