X17z fresh water tank

Stupid question here. How do I know when my fresh tank is full. We took it out once so far. When I was filling the tank water started pouring out of a hose underneath. Is that the over flow?? Does that mean the tank is full?

Yes it is overflow. The overflow can't handle it all if you are still filling. Aside from the inside monitor, I simply look under the camper a look at the side of the tank. Most of the time you can see the water level in the tank.

I find that air can't escape the tank as water is being added, and so I see water coming out of the overflow hose, even when the tank is not full.

I Slow down the fill rate and gett better results
