Stupid question

Have a 2013 320rs. Which valve is the black water tank (the waste water or the sewer water valve). Have had this unit for 8 months and still cannot figure it out. Boy oh boy.

Your black water (toilet) should be the sewer water

and your grey water (shower, sinks) should be waste water......if that's how your valves are labeled.

Black water is the sewer water valve. Gray is the waste water (sinks, shower, etc).

My black tank has a larger pipe going to the value handle.

Yes the black tank pipe going to the outlet is the bigger of the pipes.
The smaller is gray.

No question is stupid. Always ask or search. Alot of people including myself use a clear elbow so you can see when you are done draining. You can get 1 at Walmart or Camping World or Amazon or anywhere they might sell camping supplies. I like it for when I use my flush my black tank you can tell when it runs clear and you know your tank is clean.

The pull handle SHOULD be black to match the tank...gray for gray tank.

My 320 was built in March of this year and the black water handle is in the bay compartment. The one all the way forward is the gray water and the one just behind it is the black water. The galley gray water is next to the main dump value.
