It is a manual fill valve, and there is an overflow/tank vent in front of the passenger side drive wheel that will drain down on top of the bulkhead joint, so you should monitor the fill to make sure that doesn't happen! Also, avoid filling the...

I think 2000 U320 has electric water fill valve but no auto shutoff so watch the tank level just like on the U270.

If you have an electric solenoid actuated fill valve you can add an automatic shutoff to it to stop filling the fresh water tank at a level  you choose.  If you have a manual fill valve it is not hard to swap it for a solenoid valve.  If you have...
