Salem Hemispher Lite 300BH - QUESTION

I just got a 2016 Hemispher Lite 300BH and have a question about the holding tanks.

I have 3 clean out valves on the side of the camper.... black tank clean out valve is towards the front of the camper just past the living room slide out and there are 2 grey tank valves located between the living room slide out and the bunk room slide out.

My question is this..... Does the shower and sink in the bathroom drain into the black tank as well as the toilet? I ask this because the black tank seems to fill up rather fast and when I drain the tank it appears to be grey water mostly.... not the typical black water I'm used to seeing from my previous travel trailers.

Any thoughts on this or feed back would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks,
Mike

Different camper, but my black valve is just for the toilet. The "galley" tank is both sinks (bathroom and kitchen). The other one is only for the bathtub/shower. Seems to work out pretty well.

I have the 2016 300BH and the front grey and black tank handles were mislabeled. The grey handle was on the black tank and the black handle was in the grey tank.

So, the clean out that is located towards the front of the camper is to which tank? On my camper its labeled "Black Tank" which makes sense to me since the black tank flush is located on the opposite side of the camper directly across from the clean out that is towards the front of the camper.

To add to the confusion..... While taking a shower the other day the water started to back up into the shower indicating that the tank was full and needed to be emptied. However, when I went to the two Grey Tank clean outs located in between the two slide outs and emptied those tanks it did not empty the shower. I had to pull the handle labeled "Black Tank" for the shower to drain out...... AND I was able to see Black Tank matter draining out at the same time. (I have a clear section of drain pipe that allows me to see and monitor the draining)

To me this tells me that the shower and sink in the bathroom drain into the black tank..... but my knowledge of Campers tells me that is not proper.

Got the answer

FYI.....

Ok..... So I called the dealer (should of done that from the start I guess) and spoke to the Maintenance manager.

He confirmed my suspicion that the bathroom does in fact all drain into the Black Tank..... the toilet, shower, and sink.

The remain 2 grey tanks towards the back are to the kitchen island and the outdoor kitchen.

This is for the Salem Hemisphere lite 300BH
