2014 Coachmen Mirada 29ds grey tank leak

Did anyone experienced a leak in the wet bay compartment from their gray tank when it gets full, I suspect it is the tank vent but I dont know where to look , is there any access panel that I can remove to check that vent connection to the tank? Thanks

I too have a 2014 Coachmen Mirada and had a grey tank leak. Turned out that the pipe had snapped off at the top of the tank. Had to create an access along side the bed, near the shower wall to gain access. Had to re-do the piping with a flexible slip joint as part of the repair to relieve pressure on the tank joint. Most difficult part was determining where the leak was, then gaining access to it. I have pictures of the process, but haven't yet learned how to post them, but happy to share if it would help. Hasn't leaked since. Hope this helps.

Yes, without John's help I would never figure that it was there in a million year. When you open the slide it is better, but still you are squeezed between the bed base and the wall.
