Fresh tank leaking when filling

When filling up my Sabre 25RULD fresh water tank when full it leaks onto my underbelly it doesn't come out my air vent I'm guessing the vent hose came off whats the easiest way to get at that tank without taking everything apart thanks

The only 'easy' way is to cut the coroplast in the suspect area but then you have to deal with sealing where you cut it. Not a big deal but no matter what, it's compromised.

Best bet... pull the coroplast down.

Ours used to leak a little when we filled it.. I cut the underskin enough to get my hand up to the clamp and tightened the hose clamps on both the fill and the vent. The fill one was fairly loose. No leaks since...

To seal my cuts I used Gorilla Tape.. It seems to be doing a good job after a year..

i don't have any water coming back through my vent tube even when its full I'm guessing the fill hose is about a foot long to the tank

My experience x2
1 3/8" fill hose had cracks in it and the hose does NOT have a smooth surface. Tightening the clamps did not help. Wrong hose for the application.
The other camper hose had a kink at the fitting from over tightening.

If you do cut the coroplast eternabond tape (although made for roofs) will repair it forever.
