Galley tank, grey water tank. Uses

So I have had my new 32 bhds out twice and the galley tank fills rediculously fast, upon dumping I have realized the grey water tank is empty?????

What is supposed to be going to the great water tank. Surely not just the outdoor kitchen. it looks as though I can open bothe galley and grey water valves and let it back fill the other tank but that doesn't seem right to me. What say you campers?

Gray water should be bathroom sink and shower.

How many sewer outlets do you have ?
How many pipes run to each outlet?
How many pull handles do you have?

You should have two gray tanks at 30 gallon for a total of 64 gallon including 6 gallon water heater, and one black @ 32 gallon and a fresh tank at 40 gallons

My TT has 2 grey water tanks with separate outlets, each 30-gallons. I bought 2 new hoses and a Y fitting. I keep the galley tank open so it never fills, and the shower tank closed. When I get ready to leave I can dump the black and then the shower to clean it out. I have never stayed where there is no sewer connection. I just bought a 32-gallon tank on wheels so I can stay where there is no sewer... I'll probably let the galley water fill that and then let the TT tank fill before dumping both. Our galley always fills much faster than the shower/sink tank.

One galley tank, one black tank, one grey tank. One sewer outlet with bayonet connector. One large blade valve and two small blade valves. My plan for Tomorrow I am gonna open all the valves and put water in till it runs out the close valves to find which one controls it. And while we're are at it my crank up antenna get nothing in the way of channels. Booster is on with coax hooked to TV connector....?

If you have an android based phone get antenna helper free to help aim your antenna to the closest tower.

So after opening all the valves it is undeniably obvious the whole grey water tank is for the outdoor kitchen. ARE YPU SERIOUS FOREST RIVER? anyway guess ill use the galley tank till it is full and if necessary ill open both small valves and let them equalize. But that is gonna make dumping a bit messy

My outside kitchen has its own tank as well.
Albeit I still have a galley tank and another gray tank for the bathroom.

Just get one of these twist on valves. I used it for equilizing my gray tanks. And it eliminates the mess from using a cap to do it.

Very good info, nice. This is exactly what I have found when googling equalizing tanks. I thought I would install a permanent valve but I like the removeable valve. Because I won't always need to balance tanks.
