Primetime Tracer 3000bhs black and gray water tank question....

I own a Primetime Tracer 3000bhs. The bathroom sink, shower and toilet all drain into the black water tank. The kitchen sink is the only thing that drains into the gray water tank. Is this the correct set-up?

Thanks

No, I believe your kitchen sink, bathroom sink and shower drain to gray, toilet to black. if you have an outdide kitchen that sink will also drain to the black.

More specifically in mine there is a galley tank that collects kitchen and is tied to the other gray tank. So you may also have two gray tanks and one black.

Everything would have to be re plumbed I guess. What makes you think the shower and bathroom sink go into the black? I have never heard of any other trailer having such a setup

On a few models of campers, the bathroom sink will go in to the black tank. Never seen a shower go in the black tank though, not even safe to do so.

Now you said when you turn on the bathroom faucets, the black tank fills up. Would take several hours to get enough water through the sink to fill up the black tank. How do you know it is filling the black tank? Are you looking down through the toilet, or watching a monitor panel? Are you sure you don't have two gray tanks? (usually found where there is a kitchen on one end, and a bath on the other).

I spoke with primetime. Great customer service. They said that the camper was actually set up correctly. I asked about re-plumbing the camper and I was told that it would be at least an 8 hour job. Bottom line....expensive. Not sure why they set the camper up like this...

I turn on the water to the sink and I check the monitor panel. I then open the 2 seperate tanks and flush them. Its not hard to tell where the water is going.
