I have to assume you have a total of 68 gallons of gray water capacity. Remember one is the galley tank and the other is the bathroom/shower tank. The bath tank will obviously fill much more quickly that the galley tank will so let the girls know it is still not an unlimited storage for gray water.

As far as dumping the two, I keep a 10' and a 20' sewer hose. Depending on the layout of the site, I usually need the 20' for the galley tank, which is in the rear of my trailer. The 10' is usually sufficient for the bath/black combo tank connection.

Happy camping and post some pictures when you get a chance.

question, i have a new LE , it says it has 66 gallon gray tank.

when i read your response about using two length hoses it raised a question, do you have two outlet sewer connects, one for front and one for rear. sorry if i misunderstand the use of the two length hoses, i think mine only has one outlet sewer connection. i am a bit new to the variety of rvs also. I really havent seen my new much and it is a new model where they havent published the literature for me to read.

it is good to talk with you and thanks for your posts.

btw, what sewer hose/fittings do you like the best as far as ease of use and no leakage

Can anyone tell me the specs on a 2003 Salem 27FKS. I'm mostly looking for the standard equipment like Fresh, grey and black water tanks.
Any other items would really be helpful..
