2012 SV-305 Black Water Valve

We just purchased this model. There are two valves at the "sewer dump" location on the SV-305. One on the left and one on the right. I swear the dealer said never to open the valve on the left? Is that true? Does the right valve control both the grey water and black water?
Thank you.

It will help if you can take a pic, that being said. Normally they re not connected. Black water valve has bigger pipes going to it 3 inch. Grey has 1.5 inch piping. I think they meant to say dont leave it open. You want to open valve with it atleast 3/4 full. Helps flush out the solid waste, then pull grey valve to help clean your sewer hose!!! This normal operation
