Galley tank versus gray water tank

During my walk through today the guy was not able to explain entirely the difference between these two tanks. What is the difference?

Means 2 gray tanks, the galley tank for the kitchen sink and the other for the shower and bathroom sink.

In my TT the "grey" tank is all grey water except the OK as I understand. It has it's own grey "galley" tank.

They guy said something about all sinks use the galley and the other is for the shower. But what is being said here makes more sense.

I wish that was always true...we don't use the shower. I use nearly all in washing dishes(sometimes I don't want to use the outdoor shower). I have thought about trying to re-plumb or tie the greys together. I don't even dent the OK grey tank.

He could be right depending on how your unit is plumbed. Typically it is just what the others have mentioned.

After five days, our bathroom gray water tank is almost full & our galley is pretty empty (quite a few dinners out this week).

Is there a good reason they are not connected? Is it possible (or advisable) to do such a thing?

If your setup looks like the attached photo it appears as though you could open both grey valves, leaving the cap on, and the two tanks should equalize. Some folks add a twist on valve so you don't get sprayed removing the cap when you need to dump.
