Filling the fresh water tank

Have a dumb question here. I had a Georgetown before this and when I would fill the fresh water tank, I would just let it go until I saw the water running out the overflow vent. I have not noticed an overflow vent on my Berkshire. Is there a danger of overfilling the freshwater tank in this rig?

Can't help you there. When we travel, we carry very little water. IMHO, the less weight we carry, the better the mileage.

I have an 08 and the overflow vent tube is located on the right side of the fresh water tank. I have filled it to the tube connection on the tank before, but I have never filled it until it ran out of the tube. Hope this helps.

It carries more than the gas jobs, I just have my son watch the lights inside until all 4 light up and call it a day. Probably could fit 5-10 more gallons in, but usually don't bother
