Another leak has appeared in the Columbus plumbing system. I went out this morning to dump the tanks in preparation to leave Vegas for Big Bear. Got the gray flush hose hooked up to the black flush valve, and pulled the valve on the black tank.
I had a previous leak in the black tank flush line about a week ago. I had a loose fitting on the back of the black tank flush connection that would leak water into the storage bay whenever I used the black tank flush. I pulled the back off of the water bay, found that the fitting wasn't tight, and gave it a few turns with the nut driver and all was well.
Well, today after the black tank was empty, I turned on the hose to flush the black tank. I was immediately met with a flood of water coming from the inside roof of the storage bay. Inspection showed that the there are 5 Pex water lines that run up into the roof of the storage bay on the drivers side. There is an access hole, about 3" in diameter with a plastic grommet around the hole. The water was streaming from inside the access hole. I couldn't see up into the hole, but as soon as I turned off the black tank flush, the water slowed and stopped.
All of the Pex lines and fittings that I can see from the bottom are secure and the crimp bands are tight. The water is definitely coming from up inside somewhere, and it's definitely the black tank flush line. Crap. I don't think that this is a line that is easily accessed. I don't know if removing the vanity, or the underbelly skin is in order to access the line.
I just know that I am not happy about it.
