Question gray tank sizes

We just bought a flagstaff 30wfkss and know that the gray tank capacity is 76 gallons, but cant find any answers to how much is the galley tank and how much the gray for shower and bathroom sink. Anyone out there know?

I am waiting for 2012/2013 flagstaff 29RLS super lite. I have the same tank size's. I also was wondering if any one knows if the galley and the grey tanks have separate dump valves ? And if they do how do you hook both of them up to the sewer at the same time? Or don't you ? how do you handle this ? I don't know how mine are ? Hope they are all plumed together. If someone has this model or knows how this model is plumed I would appreciate some feedback. Thank you . When we went to CW today to pick up some things. We browsed at some TT and most of them had two dump valves. One in the front and one in the back [ they weren't flagstaffs] I never picked up on this when we bought ours since we never seen ours we ordered one. They didn't have one to look at. To busy thinking of other stuff I guess.It's a stressful time when your spending that kind of money. You just can't catch everything I guess.

Your camper will have two separate sewer connections. The black and gray tank will be tied into one and the galley tank will have its own connection. They are seldom ever connected together by the manufacturer. Some owners have plumbed the gray and galley tanks together so there's only one outlet.

We've had two campers with this set-up...haven't found it to be much of an inconvenience.

So what is the best way to deal with it ? do you just switch the hose form one to the other as needed?

I put a hose on each outlet with a Y that connects the two of them to a third short hose that goes to the to the sewer hole.

I have three drain outlets. One for black and grey another for galley and third for rear black. I switch mine from one to another. I also have a cap for grey hose that I sometimes use for galley andrea leave valve open. My galley valve is very difficult to get to with the slide out. The sewer elbow has a garden hose connector on it as well.

I have 2 drain outlets and four tanks
1 grey
1 black
With one outlet
1 grey
1 galley
with one outlet
They are atleast 10 feet apart so I pull up and dump
Black first then grey.
then I pull ahead and dump grey and galley
it really doesn't take that much more time.

Are the two sewer connections close to each other? If not it seems to me that it would be somewhat of a hassle at a dump station having more than one sewer connection to hook up to. I ask because Iíve never had this setup.

On our previous two Wildcats and our current Silverback we have one sewer connection that the three waste water tanks dump into.
