I have a 2001 Monaco Knight.

 

After leaving the fresh water hose attached and turned on all night to the fill side (instead of local water) the tank now leaks water and floods storage compartments on both sides of the coach when traveling.

 

Any ideas as to what line or lines I might have blown off by over filling the tank? If so, how to fix it?

 

Thanks, Butch

Butch,

 

Welcome to the FMCA Forum.

 

Other than just an outright guess, you need to access the tank and locate the source of the leak. 

 

Could be a fitting, a seam, or just a thin spot in the tank. 

 

Hydraulic pressure can do amazing things.  Have seen an overfilled tank literally lift the floor of a motorhome.
