New to the site

Hello all,

We just made our Maiden Voyage with our 2013 Voltage 3950,
we had a few minor issues but we really like it so far.
Owner Manual is really lacking.
We tried the Sani Flush system, I assume water isn't suppose to run down the walls when you use it!
Headed back to dealer tomorrow.

Just my arrogant Opinion
and I could be wrong.

That's probably a good assumption about the Sani Flush system. I have never seen a manual that wasn't lacking. They try to make them to generic! I think the forums work much better for info.

Welcome aboard!!
That stinks, (maybe a little pun intended), I am unclear as to where it is leaking on the walls, is it by the connection outside, or inside on the bathroom walls?
I would be interest in hearing what they find and how it's repaired.

Our's doesn't leak while in use but when I take the hose off it has a lot of back flow that I didn't expect so I try to get the cap on and tightened as quick as I can.

Good Luck!

Before you haul it to the dealer for that issue, check and make sure that there is an o ring-hose gasket inside the threaded portion where the hose seats. Without one of those, they all will leak like crazy.........

The water was running down the wall and it to cargo hole, on passenger side under the shower.
The hose was disconnected on top of the tank.

The tech that did our walk through (at purchase) had informed us that the foot pedal had to be down while we did the Sani-flush. Basically, the toilet has to be in flush mode to use the Sani-flush system in a correct manner.

We found this abnormal due to the two previous 5ers we had, we didn't have to hold anything down during this procedure.

Give it a whirl before taking it back to the dealer.

the dealer prep walk through is a joke unless you have the resources to not nitpick and are willing to leave the unit there. also most walk throughs don't hit every system and the more complicated tgwe unit the more that could be wrong.
