I thought you originally said that it was freshwater in the engine and muffler.
I discussed this with Bob Rossi and his Dessalator Flush Valve was defective. He maintains that this defective valve allowed the freshwater and saltwater systems to merge and when the freshwater system pressurized, the water flowed through the saltwater path to the Onan, filling the muffler and backing into the engine.
Although this is technically plausible, I wonder why the water took that path when there was a clear and lower pathway through the AC water system? Also, I wonder why neither of you noticed the pump cycle on/off on freshwater system with no use of the system?
A suggestion: Test for salinity using the TDS meter I am sure that you have because it will be much more reliable than taste.
Good luck and another great example of the value of this Group.
