Leak (drip) near the sewer cap.

Just parked for the night and noticed a new problem:
A leak near the sewer cap coming from the foam part. I assume it comes from where the pipes connect together. Good thing for 2 year warranty. Bringing the 5th wheel in for some warranty work (list getting longer by the day).
Main problems are leak on the slide, wet carpet
now this leak from the sewer pipe....

I don't mind a few problems but I'm starting to wonder if we should invest in an extended warranty plan :O

Take it in and have them chck it out while it's under warranty. Ask them to take pictures so you know they have investigated it.

I failed to mention that each time I open the cap, a little sewage falls out. I am a newbie so I wasn't sure if that was normal or not. I mentioned it and because of this and the drip from under the foam, they will drop the undercover and check it all out.
Thank goodness for 2 year warranty.
Pretty happy with these guys, good dealership and techs.

Do both your gray and black tank waste gates close all the way? Or does one stop short more than the other? I had some TP lodged in the blank tank waste gate for awhile (it would stop about 3/4" from closing fully) and I had a slight leak for most of last summer. It finally cleared.

The sewer cap always leaked a little waste on opening (with valves closed) since day one. I have 2 grey and one black all converging into one pipe. The drip appears to originate from that area, hard to tell dripping from the foam thingy
