Donny,
Your dealer needs to call corporate, this is a warranty issue.
You should call corporate and let them know your dealer is not aware, or is not fixing the issue.
1-800-283-8267 I talked with Tony.

I presume the build count is the last 4 digits of the serial number. If so, we have number 0426. The one time we towed 50 gallons of fresh water and three days later, returned with about 20 gallons of fresh water, we had no problems. No rationing needed.
Given our example, the warranty repair should solve your situation.

pump working ok so far

Well she seems to be working ok now . They put both overflow hoses on one line and put a shut of valve on it,then brought it down beside the low point drain hose. They also put both low point drains into one line. So I now only have one low point drain and one overflow hose both with shut off valves.When I travel I shut the overflow valve , then open it when I get to my destination . It worked my last trip out with 1/3 water for a long weekend , but Did not check to see how much was still in my fresh tank .Im heading out for a week and Im putting 2/3 in. So we will see how she goes.Keep you all posted.later Don

Got back from our trip to Minnesota, stayed 4 nights at Gull lake near Baxter / Brainerd.
Filled the fresh tanks full until they ran out the over flow, shut the valve on the front tank, filled the rear until it came out, closed the valve.
FULL!!
Drove to our site, leveled it, opened the valves. We had water the entire time we stayed!! What a relief to not have to run a hose 100' to fill it!

I plugged one over flow line and put a valve on the other one. works great now, i don't lose any water. I can dry camp for about 5 days but using cautiously. I like that Jayco has large water tanks for dry camping. They are much larger than other manufacturers that i have searched.

Funny this post happened now. I just got back from two days of dry camping with my wife and two kids. I have to be honest, water usage was a point of friction for us during the trip. I was out of camp for most of the day the first day, when I got back I checked the fresh water level and it was down around 1/3. Of course, I promptly instructed my lovely bride to stop using so much water. As many of you have experienced, that didn't go over well. Anyway, I talked to a RV'ing friend of mine who told me his camper will lose about 1/2 his fresh water on the way to his camp if he isn't very careful how he drives. Then I saw this post, now I have to go apologize to my wife.

You will have to block off your over flow hoses while driving to your camping spot then re open it up once you get there.my rv dealer had to put a shut off valve on my overflow hose.All seems to be ok now.

I plugged my overflow line and never worried about it... I fill till water comes out the filler tube.

Alright. Took it to the service center, left it.
What they did was put another set, one for each tank, on the opposite side of the factory tanks.
I can fill it full pressure, it gets FULL.
I may close the valves on the fill side and let the "new" vents take the duty of venting the tanks.
VERY PLEASED with the service I got from my service center!!! Thanks to Trevor the manager for getting it done!!

I have a '12 as in signature and found I have this problem also, so apparently the problem has not been corrected on new units.

I filled at a campground where I stayed the night before, about halfway on my way to a week of boondocking. I had about 250 miles to drive with the full tanks. I pulled in a rest stop and an elderly couple pulled up to me and said they were behind me and I had water streaming out of the hose/hoses (he pointed at my overflow hoses).

I had some duct tape, so I bent the hoses over (pinching them off) and taped them that way. Off the freeway I made a turn and noticed water coming out of the hose again, the duct tape came off and released more water. I don't know how much water I lost, the FW gage read 2/3, but I made it through the week OK. I was alone.

Yesterday I went to Home Depot to figure out what I could do to fix. I bought two Pex barbed fittings with 1/2" treads, and two 1/2" PVC caps. I will remove the caps when filling, then put them on for the trip. It would be easy to screw on a couple valves instead of the caps, but the caps are much cheaper.

I just wonder if the tank is vented so I could leave the caps on after getting to the destination, I don't want to collapse them.

I just did a search and found this thread, very interesting! Looks like the problem has been around for a while.
