Fresh Water Tank Overflow

2017 Columbus 340RK: if anyone is looking or cannot find the Fresh Water tank overflow, your tank vent located in the “utility” locker is doubling as the FW overflow. Apparently there is no tube hanging under your unit.

All freshwater tank vents double as the overflow indicator. However; this installation is really screwed up.

Minimalist engineering. Don't go that extra few feet and spend a couple more bucks, do it cheap as possible.

Mine overflows onto the power inlet. I think this must be a Forest River standard! ��

Forest River seems to have no clue with water and electricity. I have an outlet outside right end of the Fifth Wheel that is right under the rain gutter.

There is a 2014 C340RK next to us with the fresh water tank overflow tube next to the FW tank drain under the TT. So FR must have changed after 2017. Thankfully our outlets are in a box and are GFI. Still a stupid location...maybe a bit of “logic free design”

Add gas fumes to the mix

My wolf pup has a tilt out window just above the gas water heater vent. Perfect scoop to draw in the gas fumes. GF bought me a ceiling mount CO detector for Christmas since my last camper put me in a cardiac icu for three days.
