    Hi all, I wonder if you can help.

    We are new to Motorhoming and are still finding our feet, after a number of years of Caravanning.

    Our question: "does the fresh water tank on a Bessacarr E40 have built-in venting or an overflow?

    Thanks in advance for any help - as I have searched and Googled but am yet to find the answer.

    If you can't find the answer then I would fill the tank and look underneath if it flows out of the filler and not underneath then you have your answer.

    If its anything like our last kontiki it should have a combined drain and overflow with a tap to open the drain part of the overflow pipe.

    Overflow pipe on top leadin to a tee tap at the bottom then through the floor...off the tee tap a second pipe ran to the bottom of the tank.
    turning the tap closed the vent and opened the drain.

    All down the back of the tank under the dinnette seat so a dislocated wrist and 6" long fingers were needed to reach the tap.
