Is it true that the black and grey are in the same tank for the rear bathroom?

Yes, the rear bath's sink also drains into the rear black tank.

Love the info on here. Was talking to a sales guy this weekend and am considering adding a 1/2 bath in my XLR garage. I mentioned I already have washer/ dryer hookup so plumbing is existing (me meaning hot and cold water). he says yeah it will work drains into existing black tank. Now I'm not in my camper but I believe that's a 2" drain. Hmmmm. 3 inch toilet into a 2 inch pipe. And dwhit, since I am in PA I'm a little worried too. Always heard s^#@t flows downhill

Mike, the washer dryer drain bypasses all tanks and goes directly to the sewer outlet. So it can NOT be used for anything but the washing machine. That said, unlike a motorhome where the washer can run will in motion, the washing machine can not be used without the sewer hose hooked up and running to a campsite sewer inlet.

Hey, thanks Karl. My plan was to install another black tank under the garage. My old Raptor had 2 tanks and it had a 3" dump valve right on the end of the tank. Ran 2 hoses into a Y adapter and could dump whichever tank was full. Just thought sales guys suggestion was rather funny. I just want to use existing hot and cold plumbing to add a sink and feed toilet.

The 4th dump valve on my 415AMP is labeled "grey water" just to add confusion.

If using a hose and 3 inch discharge valve to run external water back into the camper to help flush the tanks / lines of debris be aware the water will exit the drain hose connection for the laundry washer.
