Question Question about lack of over flow vent hose on our trailer

I have a Greywolf 26DBH and have been getting it ready for our first trip in it to Hershey in a few weeks. While checking all the pluming for leaks and making sure everything worked I noticed that the grilled hole (usually the vent tube hole) next to the fresh tank fill was filled with caulk. When I looked in the compartment where it was there was not a vent tube.

I got under the trailer, not fun, and found that the over flow is a 90 black pex barbed type fitting that is into a bulkhead fitting on the tank. It is not obstructed since I filled the tank and it ran out this tube when it was overfilled... But do I need to worry about this draining my tank while sloshing around on the road? I usually only travel with a 1/3 at most but I want to arrive with some water for use on those pit stops...

Thanks, Pat

We had that type of setup on our last trailer and I actually like it better that the current setup. For some reason with the vent tube coming up with the filler tube, the tank fills slower and water will spit back if I don't fill slowly went it starts to get full. One of my projects this year is to get under the trailer and see if I can get a setup like you have now.

Well I can attest it fills much faster than our 2306 with the tube.
