Full grey tank

I have a 2010 Cardinal. I am on vacation In the south and my grey tank will not drain. On my sensors the galley shows empty but the grey is full. I have the waste water valve pulled and nothing will come out. Is there a bypass somewhere? What am I doing wrong?

Just out of curiosity, how many grey water tanks do you have. If you have more than 1, are you opening the right valve? I'm not familiar with your trailer.

I believe I have two. A galley and grey. I am pulling the waste water valve and another valve that isn't labeled between the waste water and the sewage valve.

So you have one for the kitchen and one for the bathroom, plus a black water. That makes 3 handles. Are you pulling both grey water valves open? One should empty just the kitchen and the other the bathroom grey water.

Yes I am pulling both valves and nothing. My shower is backed up so I know it is full.

Ok, what happens when you pull the black water valve? Close the grey valves 1st.

What model Cardinal? Is this trailer new to you or have you had it a while and this problem just started?

Ok so the left valve is the bathroom grey the middle valve is the black and the right valve is the kitchen grey. I have never just wanted to dump just the grey. I will have to relabel the valves. Thanks for the replies. I am sure I will have more as we are starting to travel long distance for vacation.

Your shower drain may be full of hair and debris.
