The fresh water tank should have an overflow pipe that allows air to enter the tank as it's drained, and provides a drain if you overfill the tank. Tis overflow pipe should end up outside of the RV, not inside where overflow will wet the floor of the bedroom.
The overflow pipe may not be properly routed outside of the rv and/or the connection to the tank may not be properly sealed. Both should be checked and repaired as needed.
You bring up a good point! The tank overflow should be routed to the outside.
We may have helped correct the check valve problem but if he were to ever fill his fw tank when it was filled it would soak his carpet again instead of draining to the outside.
He defiantly needs to check his overflow line.
