The dealer might not be allowed to fix it if there is some sort of newer rule about shower water? Seams incorrect that the shower drain leads to your black tank. I though the black tank was for human waste. Everything else is non-biological and therefore grey water? Meanwhile, If you can get to the piping, I am sure the black and the grey tanks are very close together, and you might be able to change the plumbing yourself. Some of the dealers carry various plumbing fittings etc. and I would bet they have the fittings to make it work. I leave my grey water open when we are camping when we are connected to a sewer. Shower and sink water drains there, and I dump my black water once or twice during our stay.

... and so is anyone who tells you to "just use the bathhouse."
If the dealer is not better help than this, go to Surveyor management as has been suggested.

I have a 2014 Surveyor 220RB Sport, I definitely know that the shower drains into the Grey Tank, since on the maiden voyage my wife and I filled it up in 24hrs. LOL

Lesson learned.................

From the Recreational Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA):

Plumbing Systems as specified in ANSI/NFPA 1192 Standard for RVs.

Only listed plumbing devices, fixtures and appliances that have been labeled by nationally recognized testing agencies are allowed.

Water distribution systems are sized to provide adequate flow rate and designed to prevent backflow contamination.


Fixtures with traps and vents must be provided to protect against siphonage and back pressure.

Vents to release gases from any waste holding tank must be provided.

Tell the fellow that your vehicle does not conform to ANSI/NFPA 1192.
Exactly, whose agent are you talking with?

Problem Solved?

I know this post is a couple years old, but I am wondering if you ever got anywhere with this issue? I have the same trailer with the same frustrations. I brought it to several different dealers trying to get someone to re-route the shower but everyone says it is not possible.
