Welcome to the forum!

To clarify, when you say you've found two valves, are you indicating two, separate valves into one sewer connection or two separate valves and separate sewer connections.

The normal set-up would be one grey tank valve and the black tank valve into one sewer connection and the second gray (or galley) tank valve into a second sewer connection. If the gray tank capacity is 84 gal, that would be 2 - 42 gal tanks.

Infrequently, the factory will plumb the two gray tanks together, but they would still have separate valves.

I have a '13 Chaparral Mid Profile. Like it was mentioned above I have 1 black tank valve and 2 grey. I have one black and gray valve in the utility area and one conveniently hidden gray tank valve behind the driver side rear wheel that's dumps the galley tank.The gray tank valve behind the wheel was not marked.
Hope that helps you

Thanks everyone. Sorry I did not reply earlier but I finally found all three valves:
-One for the human waste tank located in the water control compartment. This one was easy!
- one in the frame under the water compartment. Unexpected location!
- one in the frame behind the rear tires drivers's side.
There are three separate tanks: 2 grey water and one for the black water.

Not an issue, some of us have a lot going on with the weather and what not.

Glad you got it worked out and thanks for posting back with the locations in case someone else has the same problem.
