The galley and the grey water tank can be connected together, but DO NOT connect them or either of them to the Black tank. Keep them separated.

Thanks! Our setup is like the one in the photo, I will give it a try once I get my hands on a twist valve.

There seems to be a valve on the opposite side of the camper connected to the black water tank, it has been open the last 10'days while we've been on the road. It seems like closing it should keep things separate. I really appreciate the insights!

Yeah, our walk through was a lot of info in a short amount of time...

Just make sure that when you are connected to the sewer hook up at the camp site, if yours has one, keep the valve to the black water closed and allow it to fill and use plenty of water so that when you are ready to dump when full or ready to leave the site that you get a good flush otherwise if the valve is left open there is a tendency for the liquids to drain leaving the solids behind creating a big mess that wont flush out easily.

We bought an external valves and opened both gray tanks at our last stop & it worked wonderfully.

Thanks for the info on how to do this,'it made a big difference.

Terrible experience when the teacher hasn't a clue what he is teaching, not a great advertisement for the dealer.

Be careful if you have an outside kitchen. More often than not the outside kitchen sink is the low point. If you overfill the grey tank while showering and no one is outside, you might end overflowing the outside kitchen sink instead of the shower not draining.
