Grey water to Black tank

Does anyone know if this is normal on a Forest Rive 5er to have the grey water from the bathroom sink go into the black water tank. My shower drain goes to the grey water tank.

This is my first Forest River.

Not ever heard of that before. Why do you believe your sink goes to the black tank?

Normally the shower and sink are connected and then both drain to grey.

Because I can see the water disturbance below the toilet and the tank level going up if I leave the water in the sink running.

Well then it's possible.
But even so is this a problem?
The more liquid in your black tank the better!

My last two campers I couldn't see the water in the tank below.

I have seen other post on this. Some models do have the sink drain into the black tank.
I'm with Turbs on this one. There should not be that much water from the sink and extra water in the black tank is not a bad thing.

The only problem is I camp at State parks and although they have hook ups they do not have sewer, the black tank is only 32 gallons so it fills up quite quickly.

We use our bathroom since pretty much to brush our teeth not much more so I'm just trying to grasp the severity of the issue.
I would think shower and sink would be much more of a problem unless grey tank is bigger then black?
I think I'd prefer sink going to black.
Thoughts?

On our Coachmen Pursuit Motorhome the Bathroom sink drains into the black tank. This was because of the black tank being right under the bathroom floor area and the gray tank being more to the other side of the frame. The kitchen and shower drain into the gray tank.


Just have to watch when people use the bathroom sink not to stand there running water. People and friends that camp under stand this. Others think they are at home with the water at full blast and 5 minutes to wash the hands.
