As I posted it is probably residual water in the pipes, not a leak.

Grump, I won't argue...but let's say that is the case if so then it's a new bag of worms. In this case the drain pipes are not angled to properly drain...

An inspection just now, shows the vertical drain on the kitchen sink has about 2 in of vertical play...this could account for kitchen gw!

Grump may have solved it...will look into this more when I get back home from this trip.

This will stop that (or at least bring it to just a few drops). It works for me.

What I've always done in case there is any residual is hook up the sewer hose end to the sewer and hold the other end under the outlet on the rig.

Take off the cap (with gloves on) and let any liquid run into the hose and when done lock it up.

No biggy and easy.

Understood. Not saying it's a big deal, just saying it Shouldn't be/work that it does. There should be no water coming out when removing the cap. Something is not engineered correctly or we have some kind of failure.

Dave, if you think there is an "engineering probem or you have some kind of failure" suggest you contact your dealer or Jayco directly.

Good luck and safe travels.

Looked at those and that is an option barring getting it mitigated...

Dave...
Right! You don't buy a product and expect failure as you drive out the door. As per this thread this was a problem I discovered at first use and nothing has changed. But I do have what I think is the source of the problem. Many thanks to Grumpy for getting my creative thinking going,

Main drain cap difficult to remove due to negative pressure suck, open and anywhere from a pint to a quart of grey blows out

?? Where does the suction come from...it's on the drain side of the tanks, between the tank drain valve and the outlet cap? Why, how?

isn't one of those tanks potable water?
