2 gray tanks

We have a new FR Vibe and it has 2 gray water tanks, reg and galley. Why do they have a separate galley tank? Thanks in advance...

I agree! You will appreciate the 2 gray tank capacity when you start using your trailer for extended periods!!

I also have two gray tanks, it's a pain but I think they did it because of the weight distribution myself. I think they are two 40 gal but forgot really. So splitting them up makes sense to me. I do know I have to dump the galley tank sooner then the shower and bathroom sink. I just wished they plumbed them to one outlet instead of two.

i'm not sure what a vibe is. we have a cardinal and it has two gray tanks labelled galley and grey. I could not figure out what drained into what tank. I would have thought the kitchen drained to the galley and the bathroom to the gray. and I would have been wrong. after extensive tracing of pipes I found out that everything drains to the gray tank and nothing drains to the galley tank. so what is the galley tank for? turns out we have washer / dryer prep and this prep runs the washer drain to the galley tank. ok I understand that. but why label it galley. turns out from reading other posts some rv's have an outside galley in them and it appears that if you have this the outside galley drains into it's own galley tank. I can understand that. but it our case it looks like they saved a few dollars and used a control panel labelled for the outside galley on our 5th wheel and got me completely confused as to what a galley is. user manual was no help and the dealer didn't know the answer. hope this helps
