I can hear the black tank flush spraying inside the black tank but I'm getting water elsewhere that is coming out of a lower line on the other side of the RV. I'm just wondering if the sprayer got pushed partially out of the black tank and is spraying both inside and outside the tank into a different area. I wish there was some kind of plumbing schematic on the Georgetown 378 XL.

Are you sure the low drain plug is in tight on the other side?

This is a moot question. The black tank clean out is a self contained system and does not tie in with any fresh water plumbing system. Think about what you are asking.

My 2014 351 has a leak at the inlet of the black tank on the black tank sprayer nozzle. So fresh water will dribble into the compartment below when using flush line. It fried our inverter on 800 mile trip home from dealer. Had inverter fixed then. Dealer tried a repair but didn't hold. Dealer now has new black tank and new flush lines to be installed in August. Nasty job ahead. Glad I'm not doing it!😬

On my 2014 351DS the black tank flush suddenly quit working. Before I'd hook up the hose and it'd flush out nice! Now I hook up the hose and it acts as if it's already pressurized and no water goes in, when I unhook the hose water drips out of the inlet from the pressure. I have to assume I have a blocked outlet but don't have a clue where to even begin! Ugh! I miss having it though!

Know that it is separate from the black tank. Sometimes the little things are missed when checking. Trying to eliminate why water is coming out other side of motorhome.

The piping is led from the inlet, thru the basement to the water heater. From there up 4' and enters the vac-breaker. All the 378's I've seen this is the laundry locker.Routs back down to the basement and into the black tank nozzle. The fresh water system at this point is common with the black tank vapor. It the job of the vac brk to prevent back flow it's required by Fed code to be there.

Try this website. www.rv-insight.com>rv-plumbing. Basic schematic. No vacuum breaker showing, but I am sure there is one in the system.

Winnebago has a plumbing schematic for their motorhomes. I punched in their journey 36 motorhome and it shows full schematic showing everything. Roof vent, vacuum breaker , etc. Here is the website.
