Grey overflow

I have a 2015 mini lite 2306.

While pulling out of my campsite on a fairly steep hill I stopped momentarily to check things out and noticed a steady drip from the upper half of the grey tank. The tank was 2/3 full when level.

I'm wondering if there is an overflow on the top of the tank and the incline forced some out? Or should I investigate further for a leak?

Thank you for input.

I do not think there should be any water leaking out when you climb a hill. I am thinking you should look for a leak.

Grey overflow

It's going in for service tomorrow for a leak around the bathroom vent fan so I'll be asking about the grey tank as well.

I'll post my results for anyone else coming across a similar issue.

Thanks vin

Ur gray tank shouldn't have an overflow cause if it did why have a holding tank at all. Check for a leak in the plumbing or tank it self.

Just picked up my trailer from service. Had the bathroom vent fan sealed under warranty. The technician noted that the factory neglected to install any sealant by the fan bracket. Caused leaking and some minor ceiling trim damage.

About the grey tank:
Tech informed me there is an overflow at the top of the grey tank. I was surprised.

It's an easy explanation for the dripping I saw. I hope it is the case.

Wonder why have a gray tank then. Cause if you fill it it will just flow out n on the ground so it never fills?? Why just done use one and let it flow on the ground?? Lol

I suppose it's to prevent accidental overflow into the trailer? Like the fresh tank overflow.

Never heard of a grey water overflow. I think the tech was blowing smoke!

It's certainly possible the tech was blowing smoke, but why?

In any case, I'm planning to somehow confirm.

To keep from having to find the leak.
