How Many Tanks, and what goes where??

OK, so this was weekend #2 in my Sandpiper 365SAQ, but first weekend with running water and sewer hookup. I was able to flush all the pink juice out with no problems and am connected to my city hookup at the command panel. My questions are:
1: How many different tanks are there? I have 5 different valves in two different locations (Black and a grey up front in the command panel, and a black, grey and galley to the rear of the coach) Are there 5 different tanks?

2: In not 5 tanks, what drains go to what tanks for the rear valves as far a sinks?

The only reason I ask is because I think the rear valves may be mislabeled and everything is closed up inside the enclosed belly otherwise I would just follow pipes to see where everything is routed.

Not a huge issue, just curious and would like to be clear on it.

Thanks!

Jolsem, I have a 13 Sierra 365 and have 4 tanks, 2black and 2 gray. Front grey gets water from front bathroom shower and sink. Front black is the front toilet. Rear gray gets water from kitchen sink and rear bathroom sink. Rear black is from rear toilet. I have no knowledge of a fifth tank. It's always possible you could have a different set up.

I'm thinking the Outdoor Kitchen sink, inside kitchen and rear bathroom all dump into the same gray tank? It's the 5th valve that is stumping me. I can't believe there would be a valve if there wasn't a tank, no? Are there only 4 valves on the Sierra's?

I have the double slide with sofa not an outside kitchen. That could be the deference. GolfMedic and AquaMan have outside kitchens maybe one of them will post to help you.

The outdoor kitchen has it's own grey tank.

That is correct. The outside kitchen is the 5th tank. If you didn't get the outside kitchen, there was a "toy chest" available for the center of the bunkroom floor. You pulled up a hatch and could store anything, in the floor. With the outside kitchen, that is where that holding tank goes and does away with the storage. But yes, the 365 has 5 tanks. 3 grey(front bath, galley, rear kitchen) and two black(front and rear toilets).

6 actually when you count the fresh tank. Lots of tanks! Making sense now. I'm just trying to nail down which tank the galley valve in the rear goes to. Do they consider the inside kitchen sink the galley, or the outside kitchen sink? Back valves are labeled black, grey, and galley. Not a huge deal since I leave the grey valves open all the time I am at the camper. I leave my black's closed until the fill up enough to empty and spray flush out.

I believe the inside sink is labeled 'galley'.

Mine were mislabeled from factory.. Figured out myself what went where by process of elimination and relabled. How this keeps happening to multiple units is unbelievable but actually not surprising to me.
