Hi, first trip out and I noticed the shower and bathroom sink drain straight into the discharge pipe after the black water valve so it goes straight outside. This can't be right surely?

Seems more like a modification by prior owner to avoid filling grey water tank. Quality control wasn't good on 2011. Does the kitchen sink drain there also? Some control panels indicated a third grey water tank to add to small grey water tank capacity but it wasn't there. Are you sure shut-off valve is functioning for grey water discharge? They are separate but share single discharge point

There is a galley light on the panel but the kitchen sink drains into the grey water tank. The both discharge valves are working fine. Problem is the the bathroom discharge is close to the black tank while the grey tank is at the front of the trailer.ant the bathroom sink and shower drain is plumbed into the main discharge pipe after both valves.

Took a peek behind a patch someone had cut out on the under belly and there is the tank for the bathroom sink and shower but there is no gate valve to hold or release water. It just free flows straight out from the tank

I also think the galley light on the panel is wired to the bathroom sink,shower tank as the kitchen tank is working under grey water panel light

the stats I have on a 2011 show a one grey water tank and one black of about equal capacity, 37 gal. (US) Of course they vary and can be changed but if I understand your description that when the release valves just before the single discharge pipe are closed you still have grey water discharge from that point anytime you uncap discharge because the grey water tank connection is after the valve now. Sounds like you will need to remove rear bottom panel to inspect changes if you are sure shutoff is working. It sounds like someone has bypassed the original grey water valve.

Picks would help. I have 3 gates. One at the rear galley. One left of the black for the sink and tub. One for black. The sink, shower and galley are piped in front of the black valve to enable me to run galley and gray out to the ground with the black closed. This is allowed in my permanent park. If the park doesn't allow this you must hold galley and gray untill black is ready to dump. 2002 27rk 5th.

My set up is the grey tank is at the back under the kitchen and the release valve is under the rear part of the slide out. Then there is a long inch and a half or two inches PVC pipe that runs all the way toward the front to the discharge pipe. The black release valve is just to the left of the discharge pipe. The drain from the bathroom sink and shower goes into a p trap and then a smaller tank just to the right of the black tank (checked underneath). Then it is plumbed into the discharge pipe after the black release valve so it runs straight out on the floor as there's nothing to stop it.

Black discharge release is to the left just after the metal bracket. And the grey discharge release is on the pipe to the right at the other end of the slide out.

I love it when a plan comes together. Who the hell removes a gate valve?
