Gray holding tank issue

I am camping and my gray tank overflowed into the floor. I emptied it to halfway and used no water. This morning it was overflowed again. The sensor says half full. What is going on? No water was used since emptying quite a bit out. How is it filling up? Camping now please help

Strange!

Do any of your taps leak?

Gray holding tank issue

No taps are leaking at the faucet I just emptied some of the water into the woods as an emergency situation. It is clear gray only of course.

Gray holding tank issue

I just emptied it to gold color on the micro board. My concern is what is filling it if no faucets or the shower being used? I can edit out that mess as I have done but the initial post has it.

Check your toilet. Something could be holding the flush valve down, causing it to run.

Would I not see water in the toilet running though? No water is running or dripping.

Gray holding tank issue

It is a bigger problem I went out side and looked under the trailer I have dripping from the edges of the pan around the tanks. Something is obviously leaking and filling the tank at the same time. Thank God it is only the shower overflowing. My emptying of the tank partially made it burp some and the water is out of the shower for now.

Gray holding tank issue

Ok troubleshooter types, what could fill a gray tank if no water was emptying into the drains inside the trailer?

Is it possible that IF you are hooked to "city" water, the check valve on the 12V is not working and it would fill the tank?

I am sure you know the difference between black and grey water, given that, don't believe the "scale" for how much of the tank is empty, why not leave the valve open all the time if you are camping with a site with the correct hookups? You may only to need to empty the tank all the way, your drain pipes might be full and need more room to drain. Since there is no direct line from fresh water to your grey tank, it must be backed up. I had a similar problem one time and there was a obstruction in the drain of the shower that would not let the drain do its job, I have no idea how it got in there. Is it also possible if your black tank is completely full, it can "bleed" into the grey water and it would appear to be grey water?

Thanks. I am at a site with only water hook up and not using fresh water tank at all. I went ahead and emptied the gray tank to green on the monitor but what bothers me is that I did this last night and used no water after doing so.
