Thank you all! I, going to have a chance to try your excellent suggestions today. I will update with success/failures later.

One is labeled wastewater and other not labeled... Hence my confusion as I believe all are some type of wastewater?

Also, my water heater is working without propane, does that mean I have an electric and propane water heater?

Many thanks for your direction!

Wastewater = black tank. It's what your toilet drains into.

The other one is your gray tank which is typically where the sinks and shower drain into.

If the water heater works without propane then it has both electric and propane capabilities. Just make sure to turn it off when towing and drain all faucets and the shower pipes/hoses of air before turning it back on.

If your water heater is on and you haven't flipped the switch to turn it on, you could end up ruining the heating element. Usually there's a switch outside where your anode rod and pressure relief valve is. Just make sure you turn that off before you start home (it's the first thing I do on my "departure" list).

Thank you all! With the holiday I haven't had access or time to post. With your advice I was able to get stove, furnace, and gray water dumped. Thank you for the bottom of my soul.
