Overflow tube size

Does anyone know what the fresh water tank overflow hose diameter is? I want to pick up a valve for it tomorrow and do not have the trailer here at the moment.

Thanks!

They are caked with mud just got back from a weekend trip on dirt road. Never lost a drop of water from the fresh water tank while driving

Little confused, are those the low point drains? My overflow tube is on the opposite side and is justa hose that drains when I fill up the tanks over capacity.

Thanks, I thought they were about 1/2 inch. I had valves on my old trailer and forgot to take them off when I traded.

The valves are used to prevent water from being lost while traveling with full tanks (fresh water). You just have to remember to open them up when you get to your site so the tank is vented again. Sounds odd but it does make a difference! They do go on the overflow hose(s).

They are my overflow tubes for fresh water tank. They drain when my tank is at capacity and I just close the valves so I don't lose water while driving. My low point drain is on same side as my overflow tubes on my trailer.
