ANSWERED - 89 excella. Dropped tank now can't remember where vent hose goes..

That's about it.. Tank is ready to go back in and on the top of the tank there is the vent hose attachment (3/8" clear hose). I have the hose and hose ties (hose is about 3 feet long) but I can not for the life of me figure out where the other end connected.


- Couldn't find how to delete question, but also couldn't find the answer using the search function so...

The 3/8 Inch hose goes up to the fresh water fill port and connects to the back side on mine.

Not sure about 1989 model, but on our 2005 Bambi, the vent hose for the fresh water tank goes back up to the back side of a small vent that is part of the fill port (inside the fresh water fill door).

Vent hose

On my 91 Excella, the vent is about that diameter.... goes from the top of the tank to the filler neck on the curb side.

I hope that helps!

Same here Katie! We are trying to get it finished up for the rally this weekend.

FYI - pulling the tank fill hose was a very good thing because it was brittle and had multiple cracks!!

Best hose I could find for the replacement was pool hose at home depot.

Did the same job on the 89 I used to own. I used the same type of pool hose and it worked great. I tied a string around both hoses and worked them into place while the tank was slowly brought up. This was a fun job that I did my self with the use of some floor jacks. Have fun because I remember learning a few new curse words during this project.

I had pretty good luck with this. Rolled it under on a mechanics dolly, ran zip ties through the front and back holes. Zipped it on up. Bolts were already aligned.

Took about 15 minutes once it was rolled into position under the trailer.

Just had my tank replace on my 1988 last fall. Took it to an RV dealer and said no problem. First they took a grinder and power cutters and started cutting the side of the cover apart. When I got it back I found that and the access cover was missing (great place for critters). I did fix that mess. I could not try things out as it was too late in the fall.

This spring when I filled it for the first time, I noticed no air coming out the vent and when the tank got full it spilled out all over under the protective cover. The moniter doesn't work anymore and I kept getting air into the system and the pump would keep running.

This morning I pulled the tank. The vent hose was never run back to where it was supposed to be. Also there is a brown wire not hooked up coming from the wire harness to the tank. Not sure if this a ground wire???
