Newbie Question

Just used my 2011 25DS and I put chemicals in the toilet and bathroom sink. When I dumped the tanks It looks like I had no chemical in the grey water tank? Just wondering if anyone knows which go into the black tank and which go into the grey. I know it seems obvious but I think my bathroom sink is draining into the black tank. Anyone know the answer to this. In our old fleetwood only the toilet went into the black tank.

Thanks in advance
Tom

Most Forest River products do have the bathroom sink draining into the black tank. The idea is to have more water going in there than solid 'stuff', or so my dealer said. (What's funny is that even the solid stuff is mostly water anyway and left alone would turn into liquid anyway.)
I assume you have a shower grey tank, just pour the chemical in the drain for the shower.

I just got back camping and overheard a camper saying his plumbing was mixed up at the factory and I think it was a Forest River product. seems the black water was coming up thur the shower drain. I think all the plumbing was draining into the black tank, The factory said several hundred campers left the factory with wrong plumbing.

Thanks

Thanks for your help, The bathroom sink does drain into the black water, and the shower/tub drain into the grey water.

Black and Grey water tank Chemicals

I put the same chemicals in the grey and black tanks, I thought it would keep them both odor free and keep the valves lubricated. Always done it that way.

I just never heard of anything in the grey tank. The p-traps should keep any smells out of the camper, and the greasy, soapy water going down the drains should keep the valves lubricated.

If it has worked for you in the past, no use in changing.
