White drain line siphons water tank

I know there has been lots of discussion on this line, but I have two questions Can this line be reached inside the bay, and where exactly does it come out. My dealer replaced the belly pan material and forgot to put a hole for this line. Rather than drive the 5 hour round trip to have him find it and bring it through the pan, can anyone tell me exactly where it is, or if it is visible through the water bay, I'll probably be able to locate it and measure to find out where to put a hole.

Thanks in advance.

If you take down the service wall, you'll see the overflow line a short distance from the pump. I believe it was on the back side of the water pump. From there it stretched over toward the hot water heater and went down toward the ground. Remember to leave a good loop in the line to help prevent the siphoning.

Thanks, Dave. I assume it has been the blue PEX through the corregated belly pan that did the siphoning?

Posted yesterday and showed up, but gone to day so reposted.

I just filled up my fresh tank and once full I had water coming out the blue line until the tank was down to 3/4 full. Redwood needs to come up with a better system than to stand there and hold the hose in the filler hole

Shane,
Your right. I put a valve on the blue pex hose. Unlike Dave's suggestion of doing a loop, I pulled the 2nd overflow hose up through the belly pan and attached it to the vent, next to the fill. Now I can fill the water completely.


I have photos. Let me know if they would help.

This too has been an issue since "Day One", so yes RW needs to get on top of some of these Stupid Little things that can really Bug an Owner.

They have the same filler that has bin around for as long as I can remember. And that's a long time. I don't mind losing a quarter of the tank when we are traveling from park to park, but if we were boondocks the other problem of siphoning is a pain as well

Several of us have put the pex shut offs on the over flow tank. As Michelle said, this has been a haunting problem for Redwood since day one. At one time I had heard that this problem had been resolved....I guess the ghost is back.....watch the showers for leaks. That might be back too
