Upon further investigation it looks there is an over flow hose made of rubber about 2 1/2 feet from the outside. It is not associated with the drain hose for the water tank - can only trace the hose into the top of the compartment - it goes on I am sure but to where - I dunno??
Looked up the plumbing diagrams - but couldn't find any reference to this hose.
Any body out there who can shed some light on this for me?

it is probably the potable water tank overflow.
i suggest that you hook up your water service hose to the pressure fill port again and turn it on. you should get a steady stream of water out of the overfill hose when the tank is full. on my moho, it dribbles for a long time after the water hose is disconnected.
if you have a gravity fill port, open the access panel before servicing at the pressure fill port.
on my moho, water will run into the basement water tank compartment if the gravity fill door is not open when the water tank fills up and overflows. it leaks at the slot for the latch on the gravity fill door.
i got about 1 inch of water in the compartment the first time i filled the tank. it took a long time to dry out and all my tools got wet.
