I filled mine by sticking the hose in the fill hole and forgetting all about it. After a while I hear water splashing and I look to see water gushing out from the fill hole, when I pulled the hose out water continued to gush for about a minute. I looked under the bed and the tank was swelled up really high, but no water came inside the coach.

So, are you talking about motorhomes or trailers? Both have had the name Land Yacht.

Do one or the other have the fresh water tank under the bed but on top of the floor? If so, that may explain why this thread is so mysterious to me.

I think the conversation is about the Land Yacht as a MH. This post was in the MH section so I'm assuming that all conversations are MH related.

In my 1992 36' LY the water container is located under the queen size bed and above the floor level. Some had twin beads, but I believe that the tank was still under one of the beds and above the floor.

overflow is next to the fill port

My fresh water access is behind the locked door above the tank valves, and has three things, left to right: tank fill is a non-threaded opening that I stick a hose in. Next is a small hole that blows water out when the tank is full, and third is the threaded fitting for "city" water hookup. So far, the only water inside has been from a couple small roof leaks and a bigger leak from missing caulking on the front part of the shower door/panel assembly that ran onto the floor and under the closet.

I guess they have changed things over the years. Our 1995 30' has the water hook-up/fill in the locker with the out-door shower and gray/black dump valves. The tank is under the floor in the rear.

I'm glad I am not the only one that fills the water tank and then move on to something else. No leaks so far but probably have been tempting fate!

On my ASLY2000, there is the city water input and the hole to put a hose in for the FW tank which is under the bed. On one trip developed a leak where the city water goes in had to replace the pex fitting that was leaking. Looking aft in BR the drawer below the bedside closet SS can be removed to reveal the connections to the outside panel. Don't have a picture available at this time..

Its Going Well!

OK, just so you can say you saw it, here's the bedroom of a 2005 LY stripped down to the bare floors and plumbing. The second picture is one of the bed drawers, I found it handy to store 1 in the bathroom and 1 in the shower saving a haul outside. I pressurized the system today and the leak was at the neck on the F/W tank. New hose, clamps and RTV Silicone and I should be good to put her back together in the A.M.. Don't ever say us Motor Home guys won't go to war like our tow behind brothers and sisters!

Nice pics. Glad you found the source of the leak.

Here is the pix I was talking about previously. The green/white spiral hose is the direct fill into FW tank. The connection above it is the city water connect.

There is no provision for "auto fill" on my rig. I just stick the hose end into the lower direct to FW tank line port and when she blows the tank is filled.

OK sports fans, she back together and I think I like the "Faux" laminate wood floor. Click below for photos:
