    Nautilus system on "Dry Camp" set up, the water comes out the intake water hook up.

    Greetings to all,

    We have had our Solitude for less than a year, but even in the beginning, when the Nautilus system levers were turned to the dry camp configuration, water was coming out of the white water intake hook up. I would think that is not suppose to happen. We have not dry camped yet, but regardless, I am sure were are going to sometime in the near future.

    What can be done?

    It sounds like the check valve that is in the line for the city water input is stuck open....it can be replaced. Oh, and one other thing...make sure that the cone shaped screen at the city water input is turned so that the screen "nose" is pointing outward.....towards you. If it is by chance installed backwards, which people do sometimes in order to winterize their trailers, that will cause it too.

    We just had the same issue, when hooked up to city water it was leaking out the sanitize connection. Assuming itís the check valve. The trailer was going in for other maintenance so letting warranty cover it. Havenít heard back from dealership yet.

    Thanks for the responses....xrated the screen was pointing in the wrong direction. Turned it around and it is now working. Crazy. Thanks.

    Good to hear you got it solved. Yea, when that screen is turned around backwards, like yours was, the pointy end actually releases the check valve and allow water to flow back out. Glad to have helped.
