24HFS gray water tank capacity

Has anyone else measured their gray water tank capacity on a 24HFS? Everything from Forest River advertised it as a 57 gallon capacity but I was finding that it seemed to be filling up rather quickly. After some measuring of my own, I was only able to get 38 gallons if I remember correctly. I did the measuring at the end of last season but apparently never made a post about it from what I can find.

It's a bit annoying because the high capacity tank is one of the big reasons I went with this RV. We tend to do some dry camping (NASCAR races, MotoGP races, etc) and after 3 navy showers, and limited sink use, the tank is full. Not sure what my options are now...

I did apparently post a topic before (thought for sure I had), but for some reason it didn't show up in my original search. By now it's very old, so hopefully there is some additional input. So I'll just leave this new thread and not resurrect the old one if the mods are OK with that.

There are 2 grey water tanks one for the kitchen and one for the lav shower . neither are connected together only at the dump site . you have to dump valves one for each tank . i'm guessing 28.5 gallons per tank . but with forest river who really knows this si one the 29hsf but maybe the same on the 24

Well see that's what I was wondering.
If they were including 2 tanks and calling it one capacity?

I have a 105 gallon grey capacity but spread over 3 tanks.
Grey for shower and sink.
Grey for kitchen sink.
Grey for outside kitchen.

Is this a possibility?

Unless they forgot to put the drain handle in, I don't believe I have a 2nd gray water tank. I haven't pulled the under-cover off yet, but I highly doubt there is a 2nd tank.
