Two Questions

Hi All,
I own a 2016 Forester 2301. I think I know the answer to 1. but just want to confirm, but need help on 2.
1) After driving there always seems to be water in the shower pan. I assume that the driving and bouncing causes water to splash up into the shower pan from the grey tank. I will experiment with the grey tank empty.
2) The grey tank indicator remains on "E". Bad sensor?
Thanks in advance.
Happy Holidays.
John

Possibly bad sensor or something blocking sensor on inside, like t. paper. Maybe even bad connection at sensor or sensor board.
No, you should not have water from gray tank/shower drain line "splashing" back into pan. How much water are you talking about? If just a bit, possibly small amount left in shower head, draining as you move down the road. Possibly a small leak in skylight (if there is one) over shower.
Only way I can think of it backing up from the drain would be if gray tank was overfilled, leaving water in the drain line. Lot of drain lines don't have a p-trap, just a stright drop into drain line, then into tank.

My 2301 doesn't splash water up into the shower, I don't know what's up with that. I did have a problem with my black tank flush, it had construction debris/sawdust in it. There's a possibility that you may have a blockage because the guys at the factory were in a hurry.

If the grey tank on our model 3100 Sunseeker is full or nearly full, water will slosh out of the shower drain when I make turns. Our shower and both sinks have p-traps.

Shouldn't be any t. paper in gray tank.

John F, your right about that. I must have had a "senior moment".

Thanks all,
There must be a p-trap in the shower drain. In fact I noticed after using the shower I can see water in the drain with an empty grey tank. The water in the p-trap splashes out into the pan when driving. I don't think it's that big a deal unless I'm missing something.
Thanks again
John

Yes there is a P trap in the shower. Mine broke and I had to fix it. Naturally I was away and not home!

This P trap (and others) should be on your "Don't Forget" list when you winterize your trailer!
