Thanks Justice12t & Jlreeves

Now all that makes sense. I can see PT using just one panel for cost in manufacturing purposes.....but is it a 70 gal black tank or a 35 gal? PT's web site says 35 gal.
I'll just leave the black tank switch on the panel in the #1 position and forget about it.
The two grey tanks being independent of each other is no big deal, just another valve to open while dumping. I don't think we ever had one fill up and flow into the other while camping anyway.
So I guess they have a factory worker getting crossed up with the wiring if the grey indicator actually shows the galley tank level and vice versa. Not a big deal, but good to know.

Thanks again for the info. I appreciate it.

Sorry, my bad. It has a 35 gal black tank. That's what I get for talking and typing at the same time.

Thanks for correcting your tank sizes as I have a 2015 model and I was getting jealous over the sizes you were stating. I will confirm the front pull is for the front gray and the back pull is for the gally gray water. The center pull is for the one and only black water tank.

As for the cross-over between the galley and grey tanks, you can add another valve to the end of the dump pipe. Ensure that valve is closed. Then you can open the grey and galley valves (do not open the black valve or will will be very sorry for quite some time to come!). The water levels will even out. This allows you to go a lot longer without emptying the grey tank, if you need to.

If you have full hookups, no worries!

I like to keep this on the end of the pipe, just in case there is a leak in the other valves. I don't want a bunch of questionable water coming out as I release the cap.

That's pretty cool ben31. A nice, simple way to tie your two grey tanks together. I'll keep that in mind.

Great idea. I have had a valve break on a trip and it wasn't pretty. Getting this for a last mile spare as well as an equalization dam.

We have the 2016 Crusader 315RST and we were told at the walk through that it only has 1 35 gal black tank and they use that panel for a few different models.

The black tank 1 and 2 switch is used on units that have 1/2 baths in the rear like a lot of large toy haulers .
