Depending on the laws in the state you are in there may be criminal liability here. In NY this would depened on damage costs. One could argue that the "accident" was reckless and if the damage was enough a criminal charge could be brought against the offender.

If not then this would be a civil matter and there would be no police involvement. If this was the case then you could try to talk to them about it. They do not have to give you any information they do not want to. You may be stuck with filing a claim with your insurance company and forward the license plate info to them so they can try to pursue civil reimbursements.

Situations like this can get complex in short time.

I'd get their info...no doubt. And, I'd make a claim. Better safe than sorry.

Lesson learned, add a 1/4 turn shutoff valve at the waste tank connection, so that the next person does not do the same thing. Or some kids running through camp in the middle of the night.

good luck

I wouldn't keep the hose connected unless when cleaning.

That matches my bit of 20/20 hindsight.

You were just trying to be a good neighbor. I think you need to document what happened and get their contact info and insurance just in case. They may not want or have to give it IMO.

I would not have left anyone manipulating my water hook ups without supervision and any claim may bring that up. They had your permission to fiddle with the valves.

Sure sorry it happened.

I almost left mine connected while at a CG a couple of weeks ago, but decided not to for this very reason. More concerned about my own stupidity than anything else though.

Sorry to hear about your issues Brownie and hopefully everything works out

Brownie,

Wow, water overflow under most conditions inside a TT can't have a good outcome..., sorry to hear that you are having to deal with this.

I would at least have your State Park Ranger supervisor write up an incident report, and have the Ranger get your neighbor's driver's license info noted on the report. I would then contact "your" insurance company advising them what took place due to the potential of hidden water damage (see what they have to say).

Oh, have the Ranger advise your neighbor of moving their truck.

Brownie, if you recall my BIL had a similar situation with his black tank flusher last year with the water overflowing into his bathroom, but his Rockwood had a water flusher pleasure relief valve under his bathroom sink that diverted the incoming flusher water into the TT, thus avoiding any "black tank" back-flush getting into the TT. I would of thought the newer Jayco's like yours would have this feature

Bob

I want to thank everyone who took the time to reply . A lot of good info & advice - as always on the JOF.

Turns out, it was the SIL that did the reconnect; and he's the one I was talking with when I discovered the flood. So he's also the one that apologized. The lady (MIL) did come over and apologize the next day, as well, and offered to help with clean-up in any way they could. I did get the SIL's drivers license/address/phone # before they left, but hope I don't need to contact him. So far, everything has dried out and no odors are present. Only time will tell.

Thanks, again, for all the advise. I think I will ad another shut-off where the hose goes into the black tank flush . . . JUST IN CASE!

This was a good thread for me to read through; it taught me to make sure I stay put if I were to allow anyone to "borrow" any type of connection at my camp site until they are done with the "borrow".


It was sad to see you had to suffer a potential (and likely) damage to your camper because you were a nice guy. Sure hope this does not end up costing you as well.
