Grey and black water tanks?

Newbie here. We just got a 2017 flagstaff 832 OKBS and a question about the tanks. Our panel shows the levels for fresh water, Black water 1, black water 2, grey water 1, grey water 2 and galley tank. Fresh water is obvious and so is black and grey. But what is galley and the 1 and 2 each for black and grey water?

That's a nice layout on that one. You've got 2 grey, 1 black. 1 fresh. Check this out. You got extra buttons? I want some...

So for example when grey 1 is full, does it then start filling grey 2? Or is there a switch where you switch to the 2nd grey tank?

The most likely setup is that one gray tank is for the kitchen drains and one is for the bathroom sink and shower. They are not connected to each other.

You most likely have 1 black water for the toilet. One grey is the inside kitchen, the other grey is for the bathroom sink and shower. Galley is for the outside kitchen. Depending on how it is plumbed the bath sink may be connected to the black tank for the toilet.

It would be nice to see a picture of your panel. Maybe the panel is also used in a model that has a second toilet.

Your floor plan is identical to our Rockwood Signature Ultralite 8328BS. Here’s our holding tank capacities and purpose for each.

Gray water in 3 tanks: 108
45 each for kitchen (Galley) & bath (Gray 1). 18 for outside kitchen (Gray 2).

Black tank: 45

Fresh water tank: 45

Figured it out by putting water in each gray tank while monitoring the panel meters AND the dump the water came out of. The black and FW tanks were obvious.

Often times that is the case... same panel whether you have the tanks or not.

Looks like OldJarHead has maybe hit the nail on the head since he's traced his out.

We have the 3 gray tanks in our 832BHIKWS. When we are not camping with FHU I tie them all together a couple of hoses and a valve to let them equalize and fill together. From the hose, I can empty any excess easily to the blue tote. This also helps with access to empty gray water while all the slides are out.
