Galley and gray water tank

I do not think one of the valves for my grey and galley tank is closing completely. I get a good amount of water spillage when I go to hook up the sewer hose. Is there an easy way to check and see which is giving me the problem. I am about to go camping a lot this month so may not get a chance to bring it to the dealer.

Have them both 'empty'. open both valves. turn on water to the galley. when water starts flowing, close valve. does water stop? If so good, if not find out why. Shut off water and drain. Next do the grey tank the same. start with valve open and start running water, when water comes out, shut valve..... this should tell you which valve is your problem.

Get food coloring and dump it into one tank with a few gallons water. Plain water in the other tank. Whether the color is there or not will let you know.

Had both of my valves replaced already.
The stench was bad with the grey .
Galley wasnt.
Empty the galley and grey.
fill grey up first see if it leaking
If it doesn't its galley

Good thoughts, it was hard for me to tell this weekend which was the problem or if both were the problem. Just happy it was not an issue with the black tank valve! :-)

Valves did no need replacing, they adjusted them to make sure they work. Happy with the response of my dealer.
