Overflow on Gray tank... ??

I have a 05 Dynasty, 56 gal gray tank. Today, while my wife was taking a shower, the tank overflowed. But from where? I can not find where the water could have poured out, as it was doing when I rushed outside to open the valve.

Does the tank have some sort of overflow valve? or such?

I looked everywhere inside and in the bays to see if the water came from any of the drain pipes to the tank, but found nothing, nothing wet at all!

As best I could, I looked at the top of the gray tank, but found no indication of water there.

Does anybody have any clue if there is some sort of protection overflow such that it will not back up into the coach?

I am looking for ideas before I fill the tank up with clean water to try and find where the water was pouring from. My tank is very difficult to get at and see all the connections.. The best I can tell it seems to be coming on the drain side of the tank.

Any help of ideas would be welcom.

Thanks

I can answer my own question now... no there is no overflow protection.

I found it to be the junction tube to the tank. Since the support for the tank has bowed a bit from the weight, one of the nipples going into the tank has, what it appears to be, popped loose.

Does anybody know how these input drain connections to the tank are configured? Are they press fit? Or sealed some other way? I just can not get a good enough look to be able to see.

Next, has anybody found a sealant that will actually attach (stick) to the tanks? Very difficultly I am going to try and seal it. I will have to use some type of tool (small spatulla) to carry and spread the sealant to the problem area.

Again, if anybody has some experience in this regard, it would be great.

Wrap it with ETERNABOND if you can reach it.

I wonder if you have a similar layout to mine and many other Monaco products. On the curb side, in front of the rear wheels, is a large blank panel that looks like it could be a storage compartment, but is fixed in place with no latch. It is directly opposite the door to the wet bay on the driver's side. If you look closely, you might find that one side has a long hinge on it, and the other side is held in place with two deeply recessed screws. On my unit, if I take out those two screws, that whole panel swings open like a cargo door, and all of the tanks and connections are right there and very easy to reach.

I don't have any suggestions on how to fix your actual problem, but hopefully this will let you get better access to that area?
