How Exactly did you redo yours? I will not take it back to 'them' and fix it myself if I have a better idea on what to do than what they did.
Yeah, my dealer showed the same competence.
I took the factory breather, added a tee valve on the end, then attached a hose on the other end of the tee, ran that up and over the LP tank with the top of the loop a couple a foot or so higher than the top of the fresh tank. I then let a couple of feet of hose hang down next to the tank.
With the tee valve closed I fill as normal until water is coming out the vent at the LP tank. At that point I open the tee valve to drain the high end of the hose, then close it. That breaks the actual siphon effect caused by the high loop. The hose will still have water in it, since the vent is below the high water line, after a day or two of use I'll open the tee one last time to let it work normally.
So I get to use much more of my tank and I don't lose any water while traveling.
Back to your normally scheduled thread.
