    I just gave up and ignore the small puddle under the transit..



    Is there a risk involved?

    not..its no different than your therm valve being stuck open and dumping into your waste tank....you probably just losing a little bit of heat...

    So wouldn't it be best if @Mikey P just routed his overflow to under the van?

    I'm speaking from experience and it sucks to have water overflowing in my van.. My old water box float sucked ass as it'd overflow with too much pressure..

    I like the "squirt" from my 370's water box. When my regulator wasn't adjusted enough to cause the radiator cap to relive itself, the was a growing air pocket in the tank. The decreasing water volume was heating more and more tripping the temp relief valve. Wasn't filling my waste tank but still annoying. My overflow from the cap vents under the truck, easy to see a small puddle when I jump in to leave.

    Water on the drive is a liability in climates where that water can freeze. Bad PR to leave anything on the pavement when you leave.

    We plumb in RV pressure regulators and forget about them. Should be a standard bit for all truckmounts. 65 psi residential is fine, but a lot of commercial and rental water sources are 125 psi or more.
