Fresh water guage

So, here is my newbie questions.

I have a 106 gal tank, plus the optional 60 gal tank as well. (2016 WA2313)

I put about 60 gals of water in the tank and see a 2/3 full guage. Are the two tanks not filling at the same time or does tank 2 only start to fill when tank 1 is full? (I would expect 2/3 to be 100gal of water)

Should I just run the water until it spills over at the fill point? Any issues doing that?

Not from my delivery. Only one guage too.

Two water lines, fresh water and city water entry points.

The two tanks are connected via a spill over type of hose. One of the other stealth owners had a post on here with a pic of it at one time. The problem with ours is that it creates a massive amount of back pressure while I'm filling the tanks and it takes forever!!

Thanks. I figured it must be a spill over, then they both drain together, so the gauge would show true water remaining.

The back pressure makes sense and yes, will be a PITA.

Oh and, there is no such thing as a newbie question. It's how we all learn!

I always fill mine till I get water coming out of the fill port. I always know when it spills over to the other tank because the vent or air escape gets louder.
