Got a question. Need help.

When my wife and I returned home from our long weekend outing I hooked up our sewer hose to our septic system and proceeded to rinse the black tank. After a couple minutes I noticed some water dripping off the outside wall of the coach above the ground. I am just guessing that it is probably a loose connection (?) going to the nozzle that rinses the black tank. Have any of you had to get to that connection and if so how did you go about doing it. I rinsed it this morning after dumping and noticed nothing out of the ordinary. Any insight you could give me would be greatly appreciated.

One of the connectors was loose behind the wall in the convenience center in ours.

One of the connections behind the convenience center, as mentioned above, is the likely culprit. I took the wall off in the basement and had to tighten all of the connections on the hoses. Every one of them was loose. While I was at it, I chased all of the hoses and had to tighten most of them. I even removed the panel for access to the shower connections and they were not tight either.


If you remove the wall in the basement, reattach it with industrial strenght Velcro, and not the screws. You will thank your self every time you need to go behind it again, and you will. Did that to mine 6 years ago and the wall is just as tight now as it was before I removed the screws.

Thanks for the response. I did check the connections behind the convenience center and did not find any leaks. But I did find that on the floor of the convenience center that there is some warpage along the small wall below the door. I did have a small leak from the black tank connection onto the floor and I think that it is running under that wall and along the side of the trailer. It is not a major leak just a small trickle that runs down the outer wall of the trailer.

Get to the bottom of it. A small leak will rot out the wood in your unit and cause major headaches

I'm with Shane. You need to find out the cause right away. Rot will set in quickly. Get some Damp Rid or a dehumidifier in there as soon as you can, and work to trace the leak.
