Toilet problems

After pulling my Denali 287RE six hours I arrived home to find urine on the bathroom floor. Both black and gray tanks were empty. Iím lost trying to figure out what happened. Help

Maybe there was something in the toilet bowl that was not flushed down and it sloshed out while you were driving? It would almost have to be above the toilet base because once it is in the black tank gravity would cause it to stay below the toilet.

Tis possible the flush valve didn't close far enough to shut the pump down. The pump could have filled the bowl enough for the water to splash on the floor.


For sure urine or just a liquid?

It’s urine alright. The smell is pretty bad.

I have a 287 and I had to replace BOTH of my valves because they "seeped" when they were closed. I kinda doubt that your grey tank came back into your black tank and everything spilled into the bathroom.

Was there a large elevation drop between where you were and your home? Perhaps the pressure change caused a 'burp' .

No elevation changes. Have taken this trip quite a few times. I think there might be a seal leaking in the upper bowl. I was able to lift the bowl up enough to see some pretty bad smelling water inside of the bowl.
