overflow tubes

Are the two white overflow tubes exposed to the outside or do they run under the belly? Between the trailer and the black under body. We overfilled and discovered water running out from under the trailer where the spare tire attaches and other little holes as well. After removing a few bolts on one side we saw the two white tubes about where the low drain valve is but not exposed to the outside. Thank you

Properly designed and installed gray tanks and black tanks have no intentional overflow outlet.

I can be dense sometimes.

Is the water coming down the inside of the tubing, or is it following down the outside?

The reason I ask.

The way a travel trailer is built it is very easy for water to be leaking in one place in the trailer only to travel along supports, the belly cloth, soak the insulation, etc. to finally exit somewhere else.

If the water (liquid?) is following down the outside of the tubes then you could still have a problem some distance away. It may not be associated with the system the tubes are connected to.

If you just picked up a new unit from the dealer, normally the fresh water tank is full when you leave. I would suspect some overflow from that. You might want to open the drains for your fresh water tank and see what happens.

Our Jay Flight leaked below on our first camping trip. It's a 2015. We took it back to the dealer and they repaired. Apparently something had come loose (it was leaking from sewage and fresh water tanks). They tightened and sealed and we haven't had a problem since Thanks, Jenn.

what happened?

hertge has not come back to inform us of what happened or acknowledge our interest.

Hope he did not get washed away!

Fresh water tank overflow

On this new unit, we have two freshwater tanks. When we dropped the "belly" membrane to see where the water was coming from, we found both overflow lines from the tanks were emptying inside the membrane rather than having been routed thru the membrane to the outside. The insulation below the tanks was totally saturated. Sounds like a manufacturing problem, YA THINK?

It was the low point drains. Pulled the t valves and put some plumbers grease on the o rings stopped the leak.
