Our Silverback had that problem from the beginning. Former dealer (where we bought it) added a lever to block everything till you got the hose on. Not a fix just a patch. The whole thing finally broke inside and had to get it fixed right somewhere else.
Also told us the green stuff running down the roof from the A/C was normal. Now having to replace A/C because all the freon is gone,(the green stuff running down the roof).

Eastlake Roo If you wait for factory quality to come back I suspect you won't own another RV.

Surprise! Black tank lever defective upon delivery

Something's wrong with these numbers - either the "Jan 2015" part or the '280 days'.
Re: commode leak -- I caused a similar problem by using high pressure campground water without a pressure regulator.

Until the quality factor comes back ???
I am guessing you may never own another TT !!!

We had a grey water valve blocked open during a 5000 mi trip. Therefore we could not use sinks unless we we hooked up to sewer. Returned home and took in for warranty work. Report said "debris" blockage. A member of our camping group told me he had the same issue with a different manufacturer. He said when holes are drilled for fittings and the like, some remanents fall "into" the holding tank and "may" eventually cause an issue. So we are 2 and looks like you are number three (of many others)
