I once talked with Winnebago about an issue on the road, without much success, but then I got a call back from a production team from their lunch table, and they offered suggestions. It was an amazing conversation. Ultimately, they asked me which day that my MH was completed. . . I said that I had no idea, and they said: It matters, they could have put that part anywhere depending on which day that it was completed.
Thanks, I think?

The fill is located on the driver's side of the vehicle and is controlled by a selector valve at the utility station. Select options are "City" or "Tank Fill". So, no gravity fill line. The overflow is located on the opposite side of the coach and near the rear. The water is coming out of the rubber boot attached to the 1-1/4" line, so I'm confident that the line is not disconnected at the top of the tank. I could understand some overflow with a relatively full tank, but I was surprised to see it overflow with only 1/3 tank and normal, slow left turns.

Can you physically eye ball, the water tank
You have seen that it is really only 1/3 full,
It should not be possible to lose water thru the vent tube, under the conditions you described

I did the same as fisherman but I used a rubber plug that I got from the miscellaneous hardware drawers at Lowe's. I drilled a hole through the center and added a machine screw with a washer on each end and a lock nut. I also added a lanyard under the screw head made from a wire connector that had a hole through it and some wire fishing leader.

I bought a plug could fit completely into the fill Port opening. I tighten the lock nut which squished the plug tight enough to make it fit snug and not get sucked down the fill port opening. Water would still come out through the vent tube so I got some small corks that would fit tight in the vent tube opening. They gave me two things to add to my checklists.

I keep the plug and cork in the silverware drawer in the trailer so I don't lose them.

Seems the obvious place for small items so you don't have to go hunting for them. Then again great minds think alike.

Do you keep your 30 amp to 15 amp adapter for shore power inside the outside refer access panel. My shore power cable pulls out below and just aft of the fridge.

Most of the time I just leave it on the 30A plug ready to hook up the generator. Our campground is bookdock style, no power, no water, blue Johnny Rocket poopers.
