Who knows, maybe a brain fart during assembly!

Anyone know where I can find a hose to use for the vent line I need to re-route?

Should be able to use the clear plastic hose like they use for fish tanks, pool filtering, etc. My ACE hdwr has a variety of that type hose in stock. You are using it to vent air, make it long enough to put a loop in it to help stop water loss.

Doesn't it need to be drinking quality hose since it's the fresh water tank? I know it's mainly for venting air but when filling is complete wouldn't the overfill water come out it?

Overflow hose is a misnomer it is the tank vent hose but indicates when tank is full. The mentioned replacement hose will not be detrimental to health.

Correct. If you know anyone with a fish tank they are more fussy with water then humans. I am using the same hose and I'm still here!

I may just put a stop valve on the vent hose and close it when traveling. But I can't seem to find a plastic one like on the drain line. It looks just like the ones in your house on toilet or sink supply line but plastic since its outside. Any suggestions on finding one?

So I put a valve on the vent hose for now instead of rerouting the entire line. Can it be closed when filling the tank to make sure I get a full tank? If I fill when it's open until it's running out, by the time I turn off water and close the vent line I've lost some water.

How does air get out of the tank if you fill with a hose? If the air doesn't got out, tank could split open!

If I did a slow fill couldn't air come out the fill tube? When I fill gas cans without a vent nothing happens to them.
