Valve question

I just bought a new to me 2008 FR Wildcat 32QBBS and I am not sure which valve opens what. There are three valve on the driver side under the camper I know the valves are to allow the tanks to dump but I am unsure which is which. All the valve handles are in a line from front to back. Anyone know which is which?

Thanks

Generally, a 3 inch pipe comes from the black tank with a 1 and 1/2 inch pipe close to it that comes from the bathroom gray water.
A third 1 and 1/2 inch pipe will come from the kitchen.
Do you have a pic?

Check the color of the pull handles. I have a black handle for black water tank and two grey handles for the gray tank and galley tank. Might be identified that way. Or else put one of those clear adapters on outlet, take a educated guess and watch what comes thru clear adapter. When you find the poo one label it and obviously the others are gray. Goodluck

All the pull handles Dw black and can't see the pipes due to the big piece of plastic covering that area. It has an arctic package that covers all the pipes.

Assuming the tanks are empty:

Get a 5 gallon bucket and pour 5 gallons of water down the toilet. The handle that lets the water loose is the black tank. The other dry tank(s) would be grey or galley.

You could dump 5 gal. clear water in the shower and add food color to the 5 gal. water in the toilet, the galley would remain dry. Now you'd know for sure which tank was which.

I just bought a 05 28RK I believe, and was winterizing it the other day. Mine has the 3 tanks. Front is shower/sink, middle is the black tank and the rear is the galley. Black has a larger pipe but I didn't notice the handle colors.

Thank you so much for all the information and suggestions. As soon as it warms up enough, I am going to get it figured out. Thanks again and I will post the results once they are discovered.
