Try as I might I still can't find the "like" button on this forum!

It's apparent that other posters do not have the same RV that we do. We have one grey water and one black water tank, not five. In many places, since we boondock a lot, grey water is allowed to be dumped. We are judicious with our water use, but when NATURE calls(hence-use of the black tank is necessary) we have no control over and the black tank usually fills before the grey water tank.

How many gallons of water are you running through your bathroom sink for this to even be an issue?
It doesn't matter if I have one tank or 50, you use the bathroom sink the same.
Brush teeth and wash hands.
You make it sound like your bathing in it.

Now I'd think if your shower ran into black you'd have a gripe.

What are your tank capacities?
Grey?
Black?
Fresh?

Did you also know that water from a kitchen sink is considered "black water" in most places, even though it is drained into the grey water tank?

Looks like the smart move was to make the bathroom sink drain into black tank.

He's only posted a half dozen times, probably hasn't read the rules yet I'm guessing.
