Did you attach the city water hose to the black tank clean out sprayer?

You hooked up your city water to the black flush connection and you filled up your black tank which then over filled[emoticon]

Time for you to do some reading on basic RVing. I’ve never seen a new RV with a black tank flush that wasn’t very clearly marked.

What a wonderfully arrogant response. Kudos!

Everyone on here needs advice, or as some say, advise.

Like other's have said sounds like you've got your hose hooked up to the wrong connection. The one labeled "city water" is the one you want if you are on full hookups.
Don't worry, we've all made mistakes along the way. It's part of life. We've been camping for many years and have made quite a few along the journey.

Some day, when you are very experienced RV-Guru, you will look back at this event and laugh. You will laugh at others that do the same thing ... and nod in an experienced memory. We've ALL done one thing stupid or make simple mistakes!!

You will learn the in-outs of your camper over time, and don't be afraid to ask your camping neighbors (bring a beer)- we'll all help or assist as needed, unless you get a curmudgeon, if so, don't pop the top or screw off the cap, just take it back and enjoy it yourself.

Would be a good idea to take yourself camping for a weekend, meet a few campers, and invite them to show you the connections and all the chores necessary. It won't take long, and you won't forget, if you do forget, it will a least trigger the 'remember this lesson' part !! Enjoy your camper under the stars, ain't nothing like it in the entire world.

Why am I thinking this is a fake post. New member, no other posts, hasn't returned, no real details...
