I had a min today to take some pics. The red line is the fill line right above it is one of the vent/overflow lines that is on the pass side. The line on driver side is like in the same spot just other side of the tank that is the last pic sorry I can't get it to rotate. As you can see in the pic the level of the water in the tank it was full. After it stopped draining out of the vent/overflow line that is what I have left in the tank.

Are there two fresh water tanks?
Do you have two fill sources or a selector valve?
Is there a cross-over valve?
If one tank fill to top but the cross-over is slow to transfer this couldbe causing the level problem.

It's hard to tell how far the overflows stick into the tank.

You show two overflows. Does it seem to be the same one each time that siphons the water out?

I only have one tank and one place to fill. The fill is a hose fitting right where I can hook up for city and flush black tank.

It depends on what way the rv is leaning when I fill the tank. So I have seen it come out of both lines but at different times. I am going to try and pull the tank out when I find replacement clamps they put on the lines.

My rig does the exact same thing as far as siphoning out the overflow tube once full. Water fill is gravity fed. I fill it until it starts coming out the overflow, then put a cap on the end of the overflow tube (I installed a threaded barb fitting). Once we take a shower or two I take the cap off, but it's not really necessary as the vent tube relieves any suction. We mainly boondock and this solution has worked for 5 years.

What is picture 3:5?
It looks like 2 tanks but you say it is one.
Do you fresh water tanks fill via a gravity fill or a pressure fill?

My overflow is about an inch below the top of the tank on my camper and in front of the tank. I park my camper uphill and this allows me to get almost a 100% fill. I also have a cap on the overflow line so that bumps in road do not cause me to lose water.

Where does your fill line enter the tank in relation to tank top?
