We had the exact same thing happen to us last time. It sounds like it could be what Gals explained because water came out on the floor after the grey tank backed into the shower. Guess we willeave the grey valane partially open as we camp at full hook ups only.

If you are under warranty, i would get the dealer to look at it.
Yeah one thing I wished forest river would have done was put some sort of tank monitor on since the tanks are so small. I'm also glad I am not the only person that has had the Grey tank leak issue!

Has anyone had issues with the toilet leaking around the base by any chance?

You are not kidding that the gray tank is small. It took us a long time to figure out where the water was coming from as it ran under the dinette slideout and was showing up around the fridge. That is also where the city water connection is. It was only luck that I took it to the RV repair with the grey tank full and they managed to find it. That others are having this issue makes me wonder if it is a loose fitting. I also had a loose fitting on the hot water tank, we would get a small bit of water on the floor when we pushed the dinette in. It would tighten back up when the dinette was pulled out so it would not leak in use. That was not something that was easy to get to either.


The new ones now have tank monitors, but they seem to have their own issues. People often don't trust them.

Cleight the new 2015 mid August and newer have tank monitors, and battery monitor. My 2015 grey tank I'd under the floor so I'm thinking I should be able to fix mine if it ever does this. But the black tank is above the floor. But seeing I do leave the Grey valve open at FH and I really dry camp other then 1 time a year so that time I really don't use the water other then night time or washing hands.

We typically camp with full hook-ups so I will just leave the gray tank valve open and it won't be an issue. However this was our first time out since getting the pup and found out the hard way that all the tanks were full from the previous owner and CW didn't clean or dump any of the tanks...

I use a swivel stick to clean the black tank and I use unique natural product rv for the chemicals works great. Tank stays clean. I even opened the black tank at home yesterday to drain the little water n bowl cleaner from when I winterized I didn't want anything in the tank other then antifreeze. The water didn't really smell.

Regarding the leak coming from the shower, I recently found a forum with this exact discussion. Though it was a general rv forum mostly with TT's, the problem was the same. It was unanimous that there's not enough support between the floor and the bottom of the shower. You can feel the gap as you stand in my shower. Its almost spongy like. This causes the drain connection to eventually loosen and leak water. There needs to be more support between the shower bottom and the floor, then the drain tightened. Probably a little easier said than done, especially for TT's versus a pup.
