First trip out with the new TT.

We just got back from our first trip out with our new 2013 Dutchmen Denali 287re. We really like the floor plan. I would call it a great couples trailer. All went well. We found a few minor things that may need attention, ie. slide out rubber seal along the top was cut short, calking issues, but all in all everything went well until the day we packed up and left.

I emptied the black tank and then hooked up the water hose to the black tank flush on the outside of the TT and let it run for a few minutes. After about 3 mins we had water coming out of the bottom of the trailer just underneath the black tank hook up on the side of the TT. The only hose hooked up at that time was the one to the black tank flush. While I was flushing the tank, I went inside and noticed that the toilet was able to flush. I flushed it for 1 minute nonstop so I know it wasn't residual water left in the lines. I'm not sure where it leaked yet but also could this be hooked up incorrectly since when the hose is attached to the black tank flush It also supplies water to the toilet to flush from inside? I thought it just sends water directly to the black tank alone... Thanks..

There is some sort of backflow antisiphon thingamajig on the water line to my black tank spray head. It was located under the sink in the bathroom and when I would hook up to the black tank clean out and turn on the water, water would come out of the thingamajig under the sink.

The dealer replaced the thingamjig and all was well but i check it every time now if I use the clean out.
