burro water tank

Help! I have a new '87 (to me) 17' widebody burro. I filled the water tank to find it just draining out the (overflow) tube. There is not any valves.. and no instuctions. I have a long weekend coming up off the grid, sure would love to have a potty and sink! Any advice is appreciated. Connie

if it is coming out the overflow, it is probably overfull, do you have any pictures of the setup?
do any of the fixtures work?

The drain valve on mine was actually underneath the trailer. Kind of hard to see unless you stuck your head under there.

I am not sure I understand your dilemma. Is the water not going into the tank and just looping out to the overflow tube? Or are you concerned you are over filling it?

If the latter, thats what the overflow is for. Just stop filling when it spits. You have not hurt anything.
