More problem i think

Went camping this weekend. It was only our third time out with our 2014 palomino solaire 147x. Everything started off great we had a serviced lot negative sewer hookups with beautiful views of porters lake Nova Scotia. Last night which was our second night I noticed that our black water tank was 2/3 full. Which was strange seeing how we only use the toilet at night really. And then I noticed that my fresh water tank was 1/3 full. Which was strange because I just emptied it at home before I left. And we were connected to city water. I double checked. This morning I checked again fresh water 2/3 black water 2/3 and grey water 1/3 full. We also did alot of dishes. . So I then proceed to the dump station where I performed my dumping routine. I check my monitor and my black water tank is still 2/3 full. But I just dumped. I don't understand. I check from the toilet hole and there is a thin layer of waste at the bottom of the tank but that's it. I assume toilet paper is stuck on my sensor. But why Is my fresh water tank filling while hooked up to city water? Hopefully some can help me out with this. I'm new to all this.

The sensors for the monitors in the gray and black tanks are mucked up. I've never had accurate OEM monitors. I know there are after-market solutions you can consider such as new sensors.

The problem with the FW tank filling when on city water is probably a faulty check valve in your water pump. This might be repairable or you can buy a kit to rebuild. Take a look at the pump to verify the check valve is at fault.

Of course, you are still under warranty and might just want to take it into the dealer for diagnosis and replacement of the pump, as well.

black/gray tank monitors are notoriously inaccurate. most of us simply don't rely on them, some install aftermarket sensors.

you can use back flush or wand flush devices to try and clear the sensors but it doesn't always work.
after nearly 7 years of ownership, i have gotten to the point of looking down the toilet hole for the black tank and down the shower drain for the gray tank.
