Grey shower water goes into black tank

So after 6 days in my new hyperlite 30hfs5 I found out my shower water is going to a 32g black tank. This seems pretty whack to me. Anyone else's XLR have this plumbing setup??

I thought only toilet water would go to my black tank. And also it's supposed to have a 54g black tank but instead it has a 32g. I'm not impressed .

On our XLR 24HFS, the shower goes into the gray water tank. Sounds like yours may be plumbed incorrectly...

That's what I figured. It's at the dealers now and they're telling me it's normal!! No way this can be right. And my black tank is only 32 gallons!!!!
Do u have 2 grey tanks or one? And what size is it???
Thanks

I also have a 30hfs5, after using it a couple weekends and dumping the tanks the black tank seemed to have more drainage than i expected. I will have to pay attention next time out!

Yea I noticed it after my blank tank was full and my tub wouldn't drain.
Pretty inconvenient for living on a worksite with no sewer!!

My 24HFS has a single 57 gallon gray and a 32 gallon black I believe.

Are you sure the shower is going to the black directly? There was another thread on here a little while back about somebody encountering a grey tank that T'd into their black tank behind the valve instead of in front of it. (No, I don't recall what model that was.)

But, if you've got some other kind of crazy tie-in like that, you might be draining to the grey, but then have the grey draining to the black resulting in the black being full.

Either way, it would still need to be fixed.

I don't know. It's my first rv. I closed my grey valve, drained my black tank by hand with a bucket and left the black valve open. Then I turned on my shower and sure enough clean water was coming out of the blank drain. Doesn't seem right to me at all.
