What is this drain? Help

Hello! We have a 2019 flying cloud bunk I recently notice when we will fill up the toilet with water. This drain will flow water outside? Would like some help why this is happening. Or how to stop it. This is not the ac, or fridge lines. Itís located right under the bathroom.

Is it your water heater drain? Look for a handle along the water pipe that is going perpendicular to the pipe - that tells you itís open. Twist it to the right so itís in line with the pipe and it should stop. Also - fill the water heater with water before you turn it on.

If thatís not it - hopefully a smarter person will chime in

The drain comes straight out the floor. The water hearted is on the other side of the Coach

Does your owner's manual cover this?

Look inside the bath, above the drain pipe you show, and see if you can find a low-point drain which only has water in it when you flush. I seem to recall a thread where there was such a thing. [edit -- see below]

What length is your bunk unit? You could add this info under your user name via the User Control Panel linked at top left.

Is your FC bunk a 30' ?

Is this what your setup looks like? If so, I think that one side of that white valve leads to the white tube that is dripping under your trailer [which makes this entire set up a low-point drain].

Also I did not mention any "flush out" per se, so maybe we are talking about different situations? If your setup is like the above, I would try toilet operations with the valve open and closed, to see what happens outside, as observed by a second pair of eyes.

Also, do you have a macerator toilet? That seems to be one of the variables in that other thread.

Anyway, I think I will bow out here -- I just wanted to make sure you had seen that other thread.

Good luck!

Peter
Good luck,

Peter

PS -- 30' yes:

Go outside behind the wheels just ahead if the dump valves - there will be a small PVC tube pointing staight down - have someone inside hold the flush button and watch water come out - if it does that's your problem -

The dealers winterize and leave it open - finding that valve is a trick - must find water pump - it's near it

Ken, the OP says not the A/C drain.

Do you have a macerator toilet BTW?

No one is questioning the water pouring out of that tube, although the sound in the video does confirm that you are flushing the toilet!



Have you checked the threads/posts linked in Posts #4 and #6? Your answer is there IMO.

It is from your AC unit.

Does you toilet have hand held spray line with it? Looks to me like somebody routed the spray line outside instead of installing the spray or plugging off the line for it.

My hot water heater had a pressure valve (not the exterior valve) that was located on some piping that came off a one way interior check valve located on the inside wall of the water heater. The check valve was faulty so the dealer removed the check calve and replumbed the hwh, adding a new pressure relief line and valve. This valve was also faulty and under pressure stuck in the open position so that it discharged out of a similar pipe in the same location as yours. Since mine was a custom repair with similar results that you are showing, I doubt that is the exact same issue. However, there may be a faulty pressure discharge valve in your system, creating the same problem. Good luck.

See Posts #4 and #6. The "low-point drain" location answer is there.

All Flying Cloud bunks are 30ís and all bunks are Flying Clouds...or something like that . The 30 bunk was my original choice, always had this idea of turning the back room into a study/recliner area then learned the water heater or is it the furnace? is back there. One of my favorite models. Colonial has a video from 2015 that made me fall in love with the 30 bunk. I have an unidentifiable drain hose coming out of my 25FC near the water heater, a water heater drain is my guess.

Wondering if you found that drain, so that other Bunk owners can learn from this.

Thanks,
