Grey water not draining.

I have a wildcat 375 mc and a full tank of grey water.
Before I start tearing into the underside to get to the main grey dump valve, is there a second valve on this unit that I'm overlooking ? I see 3 valves, one for the rear bath, bath 1, and 2 for bath 2, grey and black. I'm sure hoping I'm missing something here.
Thanks for any input you may have.

If you have 3 valves you probably have 2 Grey tanks. My galley tank valve is behind rear tire up on the frame. Check that area, it would be on drivers side.
Most newer 5th wheels and TT's have 2 grey tanks , one for bathroom, and one for kitchen sink

Well, went to the dealer this morning, they're as clueless as I am. I don't have the luxury of parking my 5th wheel at home, so, I drove out and gave it another look, my bad, I have 4 valves on there, two up forward and two for the rear bath, which is only stool and sink. I opened every valve on this thing, nothing. However, I see a yellow mark on the frame, actually there's yellow marks by every dump handle, but this one is to rear of the forward black water handle. You don't suppose there should be another handle installed there for a galley dump do you ? I'm lost, guess it goes to the dealer later this week.

How do you know the grey water tank is full? If you are going by the indicator lights, they are notoriously inaccurate.

The kitchen sink wouldn't drain. Pulled the vent cap off below the sink, standing water up to the cross pipe to the trap. I ran a fifteen foot snake down that thing, nothing, snaked up from the sewer outlet, nothing, been on the roof looking at vents, looks good to me. I'd sure like to see a schematic of these campers, the dealer doesn't even have one.

Might be worthwhile to put a clear elbow on your sewer connections and run some water through all your faucets and toilets one by one so that you know exactly which one is connected to which drain.

It's possible your drain is plugged up somewhere. Although it's not completely out of the realm of possibility that they forgot to add a drain as well.

Only way it would be holding water without a valve is if they capped the drain. Thinking either there is a valve not yet found or a blockage.

I appreciate all the replies, Thank You, at the moment I'm thinking the grey water valve is not opening, hard to tell with the enclosed underbelly, I sure can't find another valve on there. Dealer said to bring it in Thursday and they'd get to it as soon as possible, hoping before it freezes .
Warranty ends tomorrow, so hopefully they will extend it for this repair, if not, well, it's got to be fixed, their pocket or mine.
I'll let you know what they find and Thanks again.

Hopefully you've documented the appointment as being made prior to warranty expiration. If they have to open it up for service it could be expensive.

Schematic? What's that? If they exist they are in a guarded and no one has access. None have leaked and surfaced.
