Default Water problem

I recently purchased a 1998 Hi-Lo after looking for a long time. I
only camped once in early winter and did not use water. I went to check everything out today and put the hose in from my house to check plumbing and water came gushing from drain pipe below the bathroom sink. I then tried to fill fresh tank and use pump and same thing happened. I have read the manual but can not come up with why would fresh water come up through drain pipe? When I pour water down all drains it goes into grey tank and I can can drain the tank fine. The vent is open and clear. All tank valves are closed. Kitchen sink works fine. Trailer is not level but I can't imagine that would cause this situation to happen. Any ideas out there are welcome.

Hello and welcome, Ken!

I suspect you have a supply line drain valve open below the bathroom sink. My HiLo has two such valves, in the hot and cold water lines and they are located about halfway to the bathroom sink. Yours may be further along.

Check along the supply lines for a valve - the "nandles" on mine have to be pointed UP to close off the drain. They WILL be accessible, but you may have to work to find them. They may be "hidden" behind the line if they are like mine, but they will be above where you saw water coming out.

Jack and Janet,
Thank you for your suggestions. I believe they will be very handy when we start getting into the waterline to the bathroom sink. Will keep you posted.
