Fresh Water Tank leaking out

Thought I saw fix for this fresh water leaking out of the fresh water tank as I travel over 100 miles or so on this blog. I have a 2016 Jayco Eagle 27.5 RLTS and plan on traveling with full water but driving shorter distance's. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks, Marko

I put a valve on the overflow of my FW tank.. just remember to have it open when filling the tank then close it for driving.

I'm cheap and lazy, I guess:

I put neoprene corks in mine when traveling & remove them when filling.

My dealer took care of this under warranty. Jayco recommended one fix that didn't really work. Dealer convinced them to bring the vent hose up higher (into dead space next to couch) before routing back down again. It's working perfectly now.

X2, this is what I did and it works great.
