Waste tanks pull handles

Hello all, I may be in the wrong forum but it's active so thought I would post here. I recently purchased a 2006 Forest River Cardinal LE29 Fifth wheel. Everything is set up on a permanent lot and going fine. Question, In my marked waste water compartment (a cap screws off for access) there are 2 t-handles side by side. I would think 1 is for black, the other for grey but no markings to know??? Anyone have this type of set-up or possibly a Forest River that does also? Thanks!

Sometimes the black tank handle is black and the grey is grey in color but not sure in your case.

Both are black, a head scratcher.

Hook them up, dump both handles, then fill up the gray through a sink or shower. Pull both again...question answered. There may not exist an easier method.
Then place labels!

Much easier if I can ever get a Forest River customer service rep to answer the phone and ask.

Pokey, not sure if you'll get someone to answer on a 13 year old RV.

Easy, when you pull a handle and it comes out brown it is...... black

This isn’t something you need a rep for. Just hook up to the sewer and pull the handle, wait for the tank to drain, then close it. Do the same for the other handle. Easy peasy...

Let us know if you have other questions.

Also, you can ask almost anyone at a park where you are hooked up and they should be able to show you.

On my Berk the black is for black and grey is for grey but your unit is 18 years old and there is no way to tell what has been changed or replaced and a rep would probably say the same. Take the advise of all who have responded above and pull one and after it drains, pull the other. There are several hose components available that are clear or semi-clear if you are hesitant about being able to see exactly what's draining. Good luck!

Why not get a clear plastic L=-fitting and attach that to the exit fitting. Attach your hose and use both tanks as you would normally. It will be readily obvious, which is which... not to be gross. If you can see the pipes that come from the tanks to the exit valves, the grey pipe may be significantly thinner than the black pipe.
