Black Tank Filling with Water

So just got back home to our Champagne after a week away, and the black tank was so full I’m amazed it didn’t overflow! I pulled the valve and it all came out with a HUGE “whoosh”! I flushed the tank before we left, so while we were gone it was filling up slowly with water! Any ideas??

Easy guess is you left something on slightly. If it had been me I bet I would have disconnected all the water lines to the trailer.

My first guess would be the BT flush was left on just a little tiny bit.

As said being as the BT flush is a stand alone plumbed system there's only 2 ways for the tank to get water; via the cleanout input port or the toilet valve and seal (both) leaking. Either way there has to be water pressure applied. Externally for the cleanout (BT flush port) or toilet (shore water port) or the water pump (holding tank) for the toilet. Seems like the OP could have figured this out.

I don't know anything about your trailer but, now and then, we have questions here about units whose bathroom sink and/or clothes washer drains into the black water tank.


EDIT:
Well, maybe not washer. Washers drain to a gray tank SOOooo, in some cases, the sink drains to black for a little balance.

What ever you find as the cause, in the future turn off all sources of water when leaving for more than just the day.
