Peter,

I had my gray tank leak when I filled the tank to overflowing after four days of showers and dishes. Since the underside of my WhiteHawk is sealed I could not see where the leak was coming from.

I suspect the attachment for the drain pipes to the top of the gray tank might not be watertight.

I am going to wait until I find more issues before I take my rig in to the Jayco dealer for service. They are going to have to remove some of the insulation from the underside to get to the tank and fittings.

Let us know how this turns out for you.

Craig

If you don't have the insulated bottom, just slide under your RV with a hand light. A piece of cardboard between your back and the ground helps.

You will see your tanks, loose wiring and lots of plumbing. Once you figure out the grey water lines (usually 1" to 2" black PVC), you'll have to find where they connect to the tank and have somebody run some water while you observe visually and tactically. Finding a leak is 2/3 of the problem.

Then you'll have to figure out what's broken/loose/malformed and repair or replace parts as needed.

Get under there and good luck!
