I have the 195bh and the FW tank is inside under the bottom bunk bed. The overfill hose is at the top of the tank and just hangs straight down through the floor to the outside. In the photo it's the bottom one that goes straight into the pile of spray foam.
I can't see a simple solution other then putting a shut off valve on the end of hose, but I'm pretty forgetful so it sounds like that may be a bad idea?

I never got around to putting a valve on it because all my sites have had water hookup since. But I need to address this just wanting another option because I know I would forget to open the valve.

Quite possible that this would be a cure:

Seachoice Aluminum Anti-Siphon Valve - Star Marine Depot

Lets air in, blocks liquid out.

Another le fix would be to make the vent line longer and put a couple loops in it. Factories use to do this for gas tanks before they were sealed systems. Guys with old cars would know this.

This valve would cause some Members Big problems as the Vent Hose MUST allow Air In and Out but also Check Water from going Out! Vent/Overflow tube Must be Open to prevent (2) conditions of the F/W Tank, (Imploding and Exploding)! Youroo!!

Been there partially collapsed mine and broke the water hose. I used a simple plastic valve from Lowes but forgot to open at a rest area when DW flushed

Not a cheap fix. Bill

So here's a photo of the inside of the gravity fill going to FW tank. It looks like there is a small place to the right for a tube hookup and there is a screen on the outside the factory covered with silicone. Could I just reroute the vent tube to this connection and remove that silicone?Click image for larger version

That looks like mine except you don't have a hose attached. You can attach the vent there and that should cure your problem. With that hooked up, when you fill the tank, that is were the overflow will come out.

Why would they not set it up that way? Scroll up and see my vent line just goes straight down through the floor.
