Solved. Despite being new, the hose was defective. Hooked up an identical, new replacement hose and zero leaks. Now we are ready for the road!

The manual states that there is a swivel on the valve and pipe but I am not seeing anything like that and the angle of the hose is almost 90 degrees from the connection to the bottom of the compartment.

I know you solved the leaky hose with a replacement. The swivel that the manual talks about is that the connector pipe (between the grey and black tank valves) will swivel up and down so that it has more of a downward angle when dumping. When in the up position you do not have to worry about spillage when removing the cap to connect the hose if the valves leaked.

My connection is just about even with the hole in the floor. It is a pain to reach. Point being, my hose has clicked in to the bayonet slot, but the back wasn't actually hooked. I learned, the hard way, that I should crack the grey water first, just to check. If your connection is as inconvenient as mine, I strongly suggest you do the same.

Son of a gun! I've owned my 2005 Georgieboy for 5 years. The idiotic design had the hose always attached and inside a plastic box screwed to the bottom of the rv. Without the box (which cut the stupid hoses) the connection is right even with the floor and a bear to hook up. I read your post, went outside, and my y pipe swived right up to where I can leave my sewer solution and hooked up. Thank you, thank you, thank you! No more kneeling and struggling!
