water dripping from underneath

2015 jay flight 28 bhbe noticed this weekend water dripping from white tubes under the camper. Don't have any water in the fresh water tank. Does the gray tank have an overflow?

Has the weather warmed up recently? Maybe some expansion of water causing it. Is it coming out of the frresh water tank overflow or one of the low point drain tubes?
Don't think the grey tanks have any overflow.

Where are the tubes? Over the axles (FW tank overflow). Or near the rear (lowpoint drain). I'm guessing it is your overflow. Your low point drains should drip unless you have the valves on them open.

It was the front of the axles. I have 2 white tubes that hang down in front of the low point drain and beside of the fresh water tank. I have never put water in the fresh water tank. Hooked up to city water. Fresh water tank shouldn't overflow if I have never added water, right?

No over flows on grey tanks, except the shower floor! When I got my new rig home a few years ago, I found the dealer had filled the FW tanks and I hauled it all the way home, only to water my grass with it. A full tank will drain a little when full.



Otherwise, I don';t have a clue.

Dealer fills the fresh water tank during PDI, it might have water in it still from that.. Did u confirm that your FW tank is empty?

My low point drains will leak sometimes I just put a little dish soap on the o ring to lube it up and seal it.

It sounds like the lowpoint drains to me, make sure the valves are closed and the caps are tight

On my 27BH the two tubes are overflows from the FW tank. I know as I have overfilled it about every time I've done it. It will POUR out of there until getting down to the max level. Try checking level on the gauge for FW and also using the low point drain to drain it. Towing with it full will add a ton of weight .

Perhaps it also could be the valve that switches between pressure hookup and the pump system could be leaking and letting water flow past it, then filling the tank, then leaking out. I was told by a long time TT guy to get a pressure regulator or risk blowing out my plumbing. If you are having the valve leak, perhaps pressure is too high?
