Two pull handles on black water tank

I have a new 2010 8281SS Rockwood 5ver... Looking under it the other day I noticed the front black water tank has two handles. The gray next to it has its own, and the back 1/2 bath black has its own as well, just the front BW has the two pulls...Hmmm....just incase on breaks off??

4 pull handles = 4 tanks.

The two that are together(up front) are for the front shower/lavatory grey water tank and the toilet black water tank. (usually the front most pull is for the black tank) To check which pull is for what tank(with all tanks empty), let your shower run for 5 minutes. Remove the drain cap and pull the rearmost of the two(slowly, pull only enough to let the water trickle out), to see if water runs out. This will be your grey tank.

The one at the rear of your trailer is for the rear bath black tank.

The one in the center is for the kitchen galley tank.
