2006 Rockwood 8280SS Holding Tanks Capacities

I am having a problem with the sensors on all 3 holding tanks they all always show full. I would like to fill them up and let them soak with chemical additives to maybe free up debris that may be causing them to malfunction. We will be gone for about a week and I figure letting them soak that long would do the trick. I am not sure of the capacities of each tank and can't find the info anywhere. I would prefer not to flood my 5ver trying to figure out how much they hold. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Rick

Gray water - 60 gal., black water - 30 gal. Fresh water - 36 gal (6 gal of that is in the hot water heater).
This info is from this link:

Thanks for the info Bob and Herk. I have 3 tanks though: Black, Grey and Galley. Is it safe to assume the Grey and Galley are each 30 gallons? Herk if after I get back my problem is not cured I will probably redo the sensors this fall when it cools off.

If you decide to go the Horst Probe route do not be afraid to PM me with questions. It went pretty fast.

Do NOT pick a windy day to drop the belly covering.
