grey water overflow

Just getting new camper figured out. Typically with our old camper after a weekend we prop open the flush on the toilet, let it fill almost to the top of the bowl,then pull valve to empty tank. Tried that with new camper and water started coming from between top of black holding tank and where it is attached to camper floor, whats up? thnks all

This won't help your situation... but if this overflow is coming from the toilet, it's not grey water... it's black water. I'd say your commode seal is damaged or at least not installed correctly.

While the seal between the toilet, floor, and tank should be tight, its meant to have liquid flow by it. It's also tight enough to contain smells. Don't think it's a good idea to have it put under the pressure of filling the tank and then bowl.
