2016 Greyhawk 29MV Water Overflow

I know I saw this discussed elsewhere but can't find it.

On my 16 Greyhawk, there are 3 tubes coming down for the water overflow when you fill the freshwater tank. When it overflows, two flow rather heavy, and one just a little. Like others, when I travel, we seem to loose quite a bit of water (1/4 - 1/3rd of the tank). Would there be any problem with me just clamping off these three tubes while traveling? I saw others say something about installing shutoff valves, or extending the tubes and looping them over something, but to be quite honest, I am not overly sure the best way to do either of those. (I am not the handiest guy in the world). If I can just buy a small clamp, and clamp those off, is that sufficient? Or if there is a better way, can someone explain it to me, or post pics... something. I am leaving again Thursday for a festival, we dry camp a lot, with no hookups or other available water, and I would rather not lose that much water with as hot as its supposed to be.

Thanks!

Get 3 of these:

DIG 1/2 in. In-Line Shut-Off Valve-D32B - The Home Depot

Just be sure you remember to open them when filling and at least one when you use the pump.

I'd like to know myself. We had 3 on our 08 SENECA.
