It may not be a failure but a little "smooots" caught in the blade. Possible, cuz we all put a bunch of stuff down into those tanks.

No, have a potable water tank also and it has a separate drain.

My forward gray tank valve had a nick and slow leak. Fixed under warranty.

Or there is something not allowing the valve to close tight. Perhaps paper? or other "waste". May be as simple as rinsing the line well, tightening the valve or? I had that issue on an older TT, I replaced the shut off valve and eliminated the problem. Took about 10 minutes to install.

Good Luck.

Here's what I'd do to figure this out. First I'd clean all the tanks with lots of fresh clear water including the black tank.




Then I'd drain everything as though I were breaking camp and put the cover on the pipe.


Then I'd get food coloring. A different color for every tank and not colors that could be mixed to get another, (I forget but I think those are primary colors....)


Fill each tank... and color each tank with an entire bottle of food coloring.


Then I'd go drive it around for 50 miles or so..... whatever it's taken in the past for the problem to create itself.


So, then when you stop.... if you have a bunch of uncolored water in the pipe you know it's a low spot that just doesn't drain or condensation in the pipe.


If it's colored, you know you have a leaky valve and hopefully it's just the one color and you can identify which valve it is.


Just trying to help.

Smart idea about food coloring
