Overflow Valve

I've seen many comments where folks mention adding a valve to the fresh water overflow tube. I'd like to do this. If someone has done this could you post a link showing the valve used. I've tried a couple but the fit isn't right.
Thanks!

There have been threads previously posted about this you might try a search and look at the pics instead of waiting for someone to post.

I'll add that I have searched the plumbing thread and this one and have found several posts mentioning installing a valve. Posts with images I found have been more extensive mods. I just want to stick a valve on the end of the overflow, not move it. I have been unsuccessful in finding the exact valve to use via search. So I would appreciate the help.

Just a note. That tube is not an overflow tube rather it is the vent tube for the tank. Keep that in mind when modifying.

Well, it does overflow too but I understand what you are saying. Going to be doing some boondocking and want to travel with a full tank. Last trip lost 1/3 of the water during traveling. I know I need to have it open unless traveling.

I am baffled that manufacturers do not include fresh water tank vent valves. They certainly know that an open vent may produce water loss.

Just ranting... wish there was a truly brilliant, user centered manufacturer out there.
