Drains

I have three plumbing drains on my Forrester; other than those for the black and grey waste what is the third one for that sits under the left rear chassis? Is that for the sewer drain flush?

We were told we have two grey water tanks. We have two lights on our panel, one for each tank. I'm guessing that one tank is for the gray water in the bathroom and the other for the kitchen area. On walk through dealer couldn't verify which was which so we'll be checking this out next week.

I have a galley light monitor but it never goes past empty and I have never opened that drain.

The drain pull behind tire is for kitchen gray water. Don't know if this a standard.
On my rig the Black water is on the left. shower on right.

Be interesting to know why FR did that? I am parked next to a FR3 and he does not have another grey water drain. So I guess we have to disconnect the one hose to the black and grey drains in the storage bay and hook up to the external one to empty the galley.

Thank you for the quick replies.

What floor plan do you have? If I was a guessing man it is a 2861...that is only for the outside kitchen drain.

The FR3 does not have an outside kitchen...and would probably not need a 3rd drain since it sits higher. But based on slope, etc, there was no way to get the outside kitchen sink to drain into the normal gray water tank so it had to have its own drain. It will see very little water and it is all pretty clean gray anyway.

You are in a motorhome sub-forum, but stating that it is a motorhome and the floor plan will help. Others without the same floor plan will try and help, but your best answer will come from the factory or others with the same model.

Thanks again! I do have the 2861 so the mystery is solved. I wish the documentation for the RV would have mentioned that. I have another question Mr Clemens. Am I supposed to have a drain plug on the cold water drain hose? The hot water has one.
