We have used our 2016 29.5 BHDS 2 times, and I have dumped completley, but leave some water in there for chemical to mix in the black, and grey water may be in the grey tanks as well. I have closed up all the valves, and when arriving home, I have noticed the clear elbow I have on the main valve full of water. This week it looked like black water. I put some gloves on, and it drained out onto the ground. I left the cap off, and valve closed while it sits in the yard, but I am thinking it is not a good tight valve. I also notice the toilet valve doesnt hold water in the toilet after a flush. It seeps out. The add on valve may be a good add on for holding everything in.

I have a different model 5er but I can clearly see all my valves by removing the large panel in the storage compartment.

I may have to hire a midget to actually get to them but they are easy to see.

Used our new 321 for the first time last weekend and noticed that neither of the grey valves close completely. I get a constant drip out of the sewer pipe cover cap. It's annoying and obvious. We had no sewer hookup at the CG so there was a big wet spot under the coach. Luckily the black valve is fine.
I've added these to my punch list for when I take the unit back to the dealer later this month for other warranty issues. Thought about adding a Valterra valve but we wont be camping again until later this summer...bummer....(gotta go see my grandkids in Europe in a few weeks ).

I have had seepage from the black tank as well. I flush my tank clean. (Obsessively). Is there an adjustment? This will be on my short punch list.

We have the same problem with our 2016 29.5 BHDS. We have also paid an authorized Jayco repair shop to look into this, and they said that not all liquids are completely drained, after a dump--unless the RV is completely leveled and we leave the valves opened for a longer period of time. They had tried to replicate the issue by putting water into all three (of four) tanks, then drain them. Then, left the main hose connection valve cap opened. After three days, they said they did not see any residual seepage and/or leaks from any of the valves.

So, to mitigate the issue, we ended up purchasing a portable gate valve as attaching it to the hose connection. Now, there is no seepage when we remove the connection cap. Problem solved--for now.

Here's the valve we bought: http://www.amazon.com/Valterra-T58-T...ilpage_o00_s01

Good idea Tularockstar. My Amazon cart will be updated accordingly.

Thanks for letting us know this. I to have ordered and installed the same valve and yes it stops the seepage when removing the cap. Knowing that you took it in to a jayco repair shop and they couldn't fix it kinda sucks but now at least we won't have to waste our summer with the camper at the dealer for who knows how long for them to tell me the same thing.

Great to hear that your seepage has stopped, Jason! I really hated it, but it seemed like an unsolvable issue we owners will have to deal with. At least we're not getting sewage water all over us, when removing the cap. Jeeessh!
