Can you overfill the flush tank? I ask as I have the problem back of the red flush coming out of the front bottom bit into the shower tray?

Had problem last year with water coming out and despite advice from Mark, Dolphin sealed the gap, well I have removed the mastic as I could hear water sloshing about and it was well full and almost filled the shower tray confused3
What is going on?

If my flush tank is well filled  - not necessarily  full - the same thing happens - this might be why AS tell you not to drive without emptying the tank !!!!! (what use is that?)

personally I ve given up on the tank and use a spray bottle instead - doesnt fill the cassette so much!

Thanks, that explains it. As you say, not much use is it scratch head scratch head confused3 

Suppose a fix by Thetford is due, some hope of that.

I drive with water in the flushing tank, never had a problem and don`t drian it down , even in the winter as van is used, as it is inside so to speak seems OK. I don`t overfill to start with, also use a spray bottle now and again.

I suppose Richard you have same bench loo as mine with swivel out filler neck. I always fill mine before a trip and have never had the problem you encounter.

Yes that is the one. I can only think I over filled it, as not had the problem before. I would have thought that the tank was sealed, the water was not at the top of the level tube and it was still looking like it could take some more. 

Drained some off before moving today and not sign of leaks.
Thanks for all your inputs.
