I have a 425 and couldn't find mine at first but it was tuck in the Coroplast and I had to pull it out.

egladdin,
You are talking about the black (flimsy) underbelly. Right?
And, was it right with the red and blue pipe, or where?


Thx so much for the help.

I have the 380 AMP and it was located over the axle. I also found that I found it when I over filled it. Over the axle was the low point

I have 2 tanks in my 395. The other tank drain is on the same side as the front tank, but after the 3rd axle.

tmilicia,

Thx for input. Never was told there may be 2 tanks. Back to the 'crawl' under, but not till rain stops-next couple days. Will post result in case anyone else wants to know.

Mel

tmilicia,

just realized I need clarification. Is first tank drain above front axle area and second tank drain above rear axle area? ( I see no tank drain under basement area adjacent to red and blue drains.).
Did I mention ours is a 2014?
Mel

Mine is a 2016. I will take a couple pics tonight of my drain locations for you to compare.

Tanks

I have:
1-Black Tank-(Sewer)
1-Gray Water Tank (Bathroom & Shower Water)
1-Gray Water Tank- (Kitchen Sink Water)
All three of these tanks drain to your dump location

1-Fresh Water Tank-(Only drain I have is under the trailer at the twin axles) I also had an overflow hose over the axle too.

Now there is your Hot Water Heater Drain which mine was directly under the floor of the Hot Water.

And My Washer drain does not go into any tank. It goes straight to dump on a totally separate system.

I had to install a "Y" connection to dump the water from the washer.

Just throwing this one out being it just happened to me. MAKE sure all your "P" traps are full of water or you'll get some vented odor back through the pipe into your camper. I also treated my gray water tanks with some type of lemon treatment from WalMart.

Now the order in which the tanks are located is the hard one. I know the pull station has the pull lever as #2 where as the one below it is #1. I can tell you this much you can identify the black water on mine becuase it directly under the toliet.

I hope some of this will help.
