Default Fresh Water Tank Siphoning

After I fill my fresh water tank at home, I loose about 2/3 of the tank by the time we get to our boondocking destination. The last time we travelled, I noticed the water is coming out of the overflow tube behind the rear wheels even after being stopped. So it looks like I might have a fresh water tank venting problem since it appears there is a vacuum being created which is causing the siphoning.

Is anyone else having this problem? If so, how did you fix it?

TIA

Ken

Added some plugs to the overflow drain line, for travel only, and it has stopped the tank from siphoning while driving.
