My Flagstaff 30WTBSK also has a separate Galley Tank and it never fills even when the graywater tank is full. There is nothing in the owners book about it and I don't remember anything said by the dealer in our walk through. Yes, we have an external sink but it seems odd to have a whole tank for that, and at this point we have not used it.

Galley tank is just for the sink. Has a separate drain. Well my Salem has a separate tank and drain.

Mike, if you mean the indoor kitchen sink that is what I thought, but I tested it and water from the kitchen sink goes to the gray tank and not to the Galley tank.

So you do have a galley tank but the kitchen sink drains in to the other grey tank?

Also mine is a rear kitchen which may make a difference. Your outside kitchen is also in the rear so it use the 2nd grey tank.

Yes, my kitchen sink drains into the same gray water tank as the bathroom sink and shower. So it leaves me wondering what the galley tank is for.

Wray.I think all the tanks are in the same place then it depends on kitchen location. Does seam like a wasted tank though. My old (2013) Pioneer had a mid kitchen and don't have any idea which grey tank it drained in to. So my opinion can't mean to much.;o)

I ran another test this evening and found that the Galley tank is just for the external sink. Seems that they expected it to be used more than we are using it.

I guess the weather could make a difference if you cook out or in. Main thing is we get to do this in the comfort of an RV.

That does sound odd but manufacturers do change things up. I have 72 gal of grey water capacity spread across two 36 gal holding tanks. My galley is dedicated to the aft tank while the bathroom sinks and shower go into the other. No connection between them and they have separate dump valves and connectors. The shower and bathroom sinks fill about four times faster than the galley and I can camp 6 days before the kitchen fills.
