Exclamation Please help- where is my sink drain?

I recently bought a 2012 38fl fifth wheel cedar creek and am on my first camping trip. As my family takes their showers the shower will not drain and now the kitchen sink will not drain. I have dumped the grey tank but there are 2. When I push the sensor button I tank says empty while the other says full. Is there another pull or drain if not what is the problem. Thanks

Not owning the same camper, but I would say there must be another valve. My friends 5er had a second grey pull valve, hidden behind a hose storage door. Keep looking around, maybe in an awkward place, but I bet you find one.

Our rig has 2 separate valves for each tank and another for the black tank but they're all visible under the trailer.

My primary black/gray are in the normal area up front. But my second gray tank plunger is at the back of my camper, behind the super slide. It would be about 3 feet in front of the rear bumper. Look all along the outside of the frame, I bet you'll find it.

Oh, and I had the same problem. Of course this didn't get covered at the PDI!

You should have three valve handles. Two of them with be very near and the other one is probably just above the front tire. It is also very possible that the cable the handle attaches to is out of adjustment, broken, or otherwise not opening the valve.

Sounds like the galley tank is full and on ours, the galley handle is just forward the front tire separate from the others, while the bath and black tank handles are together under the cargo compartment. Just as donn stated. If one handle pulls real easy, problem. Geez....I just repeated what donn stated...I am so dumb...sorry donn....don't know they hid that 3rd. handle. Even harder to see if there is a slide adjacent to it that is open.

Another thing to keep in mind, do NOT trust the sensors especially in the black tank. But in your case, not draining, sensor might be correct.
