Question 2017 Crusader 315RST Waste Tanks

Reading the waste tank capacities on PT's web site.....Crusader Fifth Wheels by Prime Time Manufacturing.....my Crusader 315RST has 60 gal fresh water tank capacity, 70 gal grey water tank capacity and 35 gal black water tank capacity. Except for the fresh water tank these match what I had on my LaCrosse.
On the LaCrosse the 70 gal grey tank capacity was actually two 35 gal tanks tied in together. I had only one valve handle to empty both tanks along with one for the black tank.
The 315RST has black tank 1 & 2 on the control panel and I have two grey water tank valve handles and one black water tank valve handle.
Does this mean I have two 35 gal grey water tanks independent of each other and two 17.5 gal black tanks tied in together? Which seems rather strange to me and has me confused.
I didn't think to ask about this during my PDI since I thought I already knew how they were set up. It wasn't until I got home that I noticed the second grey water valve handle.
I appreciate any info anyone can give me.

My Crusader Lite 27RK has two gray handles and one black. Gray and black together for bathroom and gray in back for rear galley. Specs say 35 black and 70 gray. It really 35 black and two 35 gray. And they did not put monitor panel for galley gray so it's at dealer for warranty monitor install.

I wouldn't go by the monitor, but maybe. Only way to know would be to look.

Thanks DANO1955.

I can understand the two separate grey valves....the two tanks not being tied in together......one for the bathroom sink and shower and the other for the galley sink. There is only one drain pipe, so no big deal there.

I guess the monitor showing two black tanks is really what has me confused.

Seems odd. Does one show empty until the first is full ? How does poo know which to go to?😕 or is the second like an overflow for the first? Gonna have to put eyes on I think to know for sure unless prime time can respond to this.

I haven't asked PT yet and haven't camped in 5'er yet either, so monitor shows both tanks empty.

Run a hose in the toilet and watch the monitors. Shouldn't need a dump site when full since it's clean water.

Here's a pic of the control panel with the Black 1 & 2 switch in the upper left.
Oh, the trailer has only one bathroom.

Same panel as in my 16 - 294. Same tank sizes also. A switch for 2 black tanks but I only have one tank. I do have 2 grey tanks and the galley indicator really shows the bath grey tank. Just an fyi...I hear that is common. Have fun!

I contacted PT re my 2017 315RST and they say there is indeed only one 70 gal black tank regardless of the switch. They apparently use a common panel on several models. I took a little bit of black electrical tape and covered the unused black 2 indicator. There are indeed 2 x 35 gal grey water, one for galley and another for the bathroom. Unfortunately, there is no crossover pipe. While its readily apparent on the panel which grey switch indicates what, there is no indicator on the handles. The one forward handle is your bathroom grey and the aft grey handle is your galley grey.
