Water Tanks

I have three tanks on my SS3100. I have a black, gray and galley. I remember the the black is for the toilet but what items flow into the gray and the galley tanks?

I was testing it out and I could not get my gray tank to indicate full. Is it for the bathroom sink only or does it also receive water from the shower?

black is toilet
grey is usually the shower and sink in bathroom
galley is the kitchen sink, we fill up our kitchen pretty fast,

Update on my 3100S tanks

I have four tanks. The 2007 Sunseeker 3100S broacher only list three tanks. They list a black (27 gallons ) a gray (47 gallons) and the fresh (40 gallons) and they do not mention a galley tank at all. My RV has four indicators on the panel that indicate galley, gray, black and fresh.

The owner's manual doesn't mention the capacities other than what is mentioned above. I know for a fact that the galley tank is used for the kitchen sink and the shower, the toilet sink uses only the gray tank and of course the black is the sewage. My next task is to find the capacities for the gray and galley tank. I hope the galley tank is the largest of the two since I will use the shower and the kitchen sink often.

I wish the manufacture would produce a quality manual to go along with the $$$ RV's especially for us newby's.

Thanks for your replies

I agree. Every RV manual I've owned was terrible, incomplete, and full of info that didn't pertain to my unit at all.

The manuals are not up to date because, the manufactures are changing there design in mid production and the paper work is the last thing that's completed, If it gets don at all! My camper had over 6 revision made before the end of it's production year in 2006. It is a possibility if you buy your camper at the end of the model your manual my be up to date, I bought my 2006 early Spring, around March.

I would take a look at how the gray/galley tanks are plumbed. I have a gray and galley tank on my 2008 2701SS (both 25 gallons). It looks like the shower goes to one tank and the bathroom and kitchen sink go to the other one. But they are plumbed in such a way that one will fill up the other. They are joined at a Y before the dump valve. This means I really have one large 50 gallon gray tank which suits me just fine.

I just looked at my new manual. It was a disappointment. It is a generic thin book that includes TT and Fifth wheels. It doesnt deal much with the systems, they depend on individual appliance manuals to provide info.

I could use more info on piping, tank sizes, how the tanks are plumbed, electrical wiring, etc. I agree with your assessment. The good thing is the systems are very simple and can be understood fairly quickly by climbing up underneath and looking around at the plumbing, if it isnt covered.

Some dealers will take the time and explain them but due to time limitations and the desire to sell, sell, sell, they only give you genl overview that will not cover a lot of details.

I still need to learn how to winterize , and understand more the assembly of the rv, but it should be simple , i just need to open up some panels and look at the plumbing.

Thankfully, much can be learned here, a lot of good info and friendly people here.

The manuals are my beef too! If its so hard why can't the manufacturers use the ring binder approach and delete/replace pages as changes are made to each model. My manual was so generic it really didn't help me as a first time camper owner.
