Hello, I'm new to campers so I apologize for any redundant questions.

How would you prevent black water smells from coming out of your sink?

Also when the grey water tank reaches full capacity, doesn't it overflow into the shower basin?

P traps under the sink prevent odor just like in your house.

BUT....
I am not 100% certain, but am pretty sure, on a high wall the shower drain does not have a P trap, as it is right over the tank and there doesn't appear to be room for one. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

I don't keep the valve open all the time i dump it once or twice a day i find it much easier to have them joinned because i mostly camp where there are no services so i use a portable tank that i bring to dumping station once every two days. i think the is a p trap in the shower. we never get any smell. But what the shower need is a back trap so when the gray tank gets full it does not back-up in shower.

Excellent Mod.

I can see that there is a slide valve to shut off the black tank and a slide valve to shut off the grey tank. Very good design.

I will definitely consider coping you on this. Thank you for sharing.
