Our Splendide has a filter that needs to be cleaned after each load. It is located at the bottom right of our unit.

Could that be the source of your clean soap and water on the floor, rather than a holding tank overflow?

ya, Splendide has a lot of "no"s to go around. Here's a soap dispenser but don't use it, don't use soap pods, etc......

DW says it was just the dryer - not the washer I guess.

It has to do with the fact that the tub is suspended on springs, with some VERY heavy weights, and movement on the road can cause it to bang against things that it shouldn't!

Ah that would make sense.

The water (4 or 5 gallons) has the strong smell of soapy water with bubbles etc. The shower area next to the washer/dryer is where the water is backed up... full and overflowing. No trace of bad-smelling gray or black tank water.
We are in a campground with water and electricity but no swear hook-up. The plan is to leave tomorrow morning (today) and dump the tanks before we leave.
Any ideas? Any similar experiences?
Any help is appreciated.

Methinks rgvtexan is correct.

Dean, in the original post he stated that the shower was "full and overflowing"!

We can't use our Splendide without a sewer connection because on our Safari the washer does not drain into EITHER waste tank...(it drains directly out of the 3" sewer hose connector).

I had a Montana 3400 fifth wheel that was like that. I was going to try a valve on the end of the sewer and then open a gray tank, but never did.

I never knew any were connected that way! Learn something new every day on here!

Our first trip in our new to us used coach was boo docking five days in a grass field. dW did some loads of laundry and discovered the shower pan full of soapy water and the laundry closet floor area full of water on floor. We learned that one, laundry filled our grey tanks sooner than expected, and two our discharge line was not connected properly due to a break in the washer connection (previous owner had never used it so was unaware). Later we had some electrical issues and realized the water had reached and shorted a control board panel. So we are vigilant now to keep out grey tank valve open when doing laundry or watching the tank level to avoid a repeat. Hope your outcome was less problematic than ours.

When parked at a campground, I usually have the grey and black valves closed and monitor the levels. When the grey gets to 90%, I open the valve, dump it and reclose the valve. I prefer to empty either tank with a rush of water rather than a slow flow. In 20 years of doing this, we have never had an overflow. Sometimes, if I know the DW is going to wash clothes, I may leave it open till she's done and then close it. That way I always have grey water to help flush the black tank when it comes time to dump it and we rarely get any sewer smell from the park system.

I guess I am confused as to whether it overflowed in the shower itself or in the shower area......

In my mind they are two different things as our WD and shower share a hall area.

The shower area next to the washer/dryer is where the water is backed up... full and overflowing

Technically, our washer is at a higher level than the shower and if I overfilled the tank it would come up in the shower before it would in the sink or washer drain. I wonder if that is what happened.

I read it to mean that it backed up in the shower, then overflowed to the floor around it. Maybe he will clear this up for us!
