3170 bathroom sink drains to...?

Hi,
Does anyone know whether the bathroom sink drains into gray or black water tank, please? We have a 2013 unit. Thanks!

Should drain into the grey tank. Do you have reason to believe it does not?

I don't know the exact layout of the new models but it should be going to the gray. Maybe somebody with your model can chime in but I think the shower should have its own tank, kitchen and bath sink go to grey and then black tank for the toilet.

NORMALLY the bathroom sink and shower/tub are gray water, as well as the kitchen sink(sometimes separate, as mine is), and the toilet only is black water. Randy

Thanks, everyone. We just wanted confirmation as five of us are booked at a site for 9 nights with no hook ups. We used to tent camp, so we know how to conserve water, but weighing how to do it for so long when we've not had to be careful with our water for a while now.

Have a great time. You may need to plan to dump if you use it for more than washing dishes.

Any use of the shower will certainly fill your grey water tank in a matter of 2 days.

Thanks for the tips. We don't use the shower (we use the campground showers). I wash any dishes like I did when we tent camped, use lots of Purell and we use very little water. We've gone 7 nights with six people before and didn't have to dump.
Just didn't know if the class C was any different than a TT or HTT, both of which we've had).

On the Sunseeker 2860 (which I used to own), the shower has it's own tank. There are two gray tanks on the 2860. No, you don't get double the capacity. The regular gray tank is split in half for two tanks.

On the 3170, the bathroom goes into the gray tank. Only the toilet goes in black.

Well that stinks, on ours it is 2 completely different tanks so you do get twice the capacity.
