I wonder if that came from Splendide, or from the Newmar. I don't have that sticker.

Good question. I bought my Splendide 2100XC Vented to replaced the Wirlpool unit in my coach. It did not have any such sticker on it. A quick perusal of the manual doesn't mention that either.

We once were parked next to someone who, as we found out later, put laundry in without opening the tank valve. They left for the day. Water came running from their RV. Turns out their tank monitoring system wasn't accurate and they were just spending a night and didn't want to connect the sewer. She thought they'd have enough room in the tank to do laundry.

Another instance of water running from an RV - again, parked next to them and they left for the day. It turned out that they had 3 cats and an easy, one-lever faucet at the vanity. They concluded that the cats were playing with the lever - as it had happen before when they were home - and water naturally filled the basin and continued on to the floor.

When we go for the day, our outside water is turned off.

Clean up and dump the tanks is about the only choice you have. I wouldn't leave it that full very long, I never trust the fittings above the tank and under the shower.

X2!

We can do two loads plus a few showers each without dumping. DW just watches the tank monitor. She stops washing when the grey tank registers 2/3rds full. At that point, I dump the tank (in your current situation, you would need to drive to a dump station or have one of those totes on wheels) and we are good to go.

This happens to many folks...happened to our CG neighbor last fall when we were in Cochrane, Alberta, Canada. Just chalk it up to a lesson learned and move on to making many more happy memories.

I keep telling myself to do this...but sadly forget most times when rushing out to experience new stuff.

Note to self...don't wait until something bad happens before you finally remember to shut off the water supply line at the bib!

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.
Sounds like a plan to me! Leaving the tanks open invites sewer-living creatures into your holding tank too.
One guy here found a dead snake in his grey tank.

This happened to us one time as well, when we thought we had plenty of room in the grey tank. Wash all rugs that may have come in contact with the water if you used fabric softener. Otherwise the backing on your rugs will come off. Now just to be sure, we always have grey tank open!

Someone mentioned they cleaned the filter everyday or after each load. I've had our combo unit 5 years and never had to clean that filter. Can't imagine what they are washing that makes that necessary.

When we bought the MH in 2012, the Splendide would not dry the clothes. I found the hose between the tub and the back of the unit totally clogged with lint!

We check the lint filter before each washing, and it always has some, not a lot, of lint. Don't want to go through getting that monster out of the compartment again!
