Gray water tank questions.

Our trailer has 2 gray water tanks. I find that 1 fills the quickly while the other remains empty. If I made sure that the drain cap was tight and opened both valves would the tanks equilise and act as 1 large tank?

In theory, yes. You'll need another dump valve attached to the bayonet coupling so that when you go to connect your hose you won't make a mess.

Odds are its gray water, the shower and bathroom sink on one and the galley on the other. My gray fills much faster, I'm better at conserving sink water than shower water.

It seems that the kitchen sink, bathroom sink and shower go to one and the outdoor kitchen sink which they are calling the galley, goes to the other.

That would explain it.

Like I said, you can get a valve that attaches where the hose does, then you can leave your gray tanks open so they can blend.

Connect your dump hose, close the two gray tank valves, then open the new valve to drop the gray water out of the junction area. Then, drop the black tank and then dump the gray tanks like normal.
