The only other possibility is, Your Toilet water valve dump blade was stuck slightly open and when you were filling the Fresh Water, the water was going into the Black tank thru the toilet. Maybe that is why it took a long time to fill the Fresh tank. Doug


Solid theory but the dump valve being stuck slightly open " happens quite often " shouldn't allow the toilet to continue to flush but must admit......I'm stumped if hose was indeed hooked to fresh water.


NOT DUMP VALVE. The DOWN knife or ball in the toilet that seals the toilet bowl from the tank. That opens when you flush the toilet. Doug

I forgot to mention. There is a FLOOD test that is done when you PDI(pre delivery inspection) of any RV when sold. That involves filling the Gray and Black tanks overfull until water stands in the shower and water stands in the down pipe of the toilet. There should BE NO LEAKAGE of water. If there is the system is not water/air tight and must be fixed. SO, if the OP had water flowing underneath onto the ground, his system is not up to spec and this means it is not air tight to prevent sewage odors from getting into the interior or outside. Doug


My rig will fail the test!
We have a vanity on the full wall slide. The drain line on the slide slips inside the pipe on the rig. It's not a water tight seal and will dribble IF the gray tank gets too full.

AND, that will allow tank odors to migrate to the Interior of the RV. More so in transit, rather than camped. Doug
