Which levers are which?

I have noticed that I have two levers at the back sewer connection on my Signature Ultra Lite 8296SS. I think that the lever closest to the back of the unit (the one on the right if you are looking at it) would be for the black water tank. Which would make the other the grey water tank. Can anyone out there verify this for me.

Thanks in advance

I do not have the same trailer as you but this is
an easy one.

The BIG pipe is the black/toilet water.
The smaller pipe is the grey/sink/wash water.

Happy Camping!

My friend just purchased an Adirondack TT. His valves aren't marked either. Cannot see the plumbing as it is enlosed--the drain comes out of the chassis and all you can see is the cap/hookup. He hooked up to the dump station with a clear adapter and pulled one to find out--his was black in front (left) and grey in bak (right).

The valve levers on mine are black for the black water tank, and grey for the grey water tank. also have another grey tank in the rear for the galley holding tank. Can you disconnect a small section of the underbelly insulation, and peer in with a flashlight? I would hate to get it wrong, because you always want to empty the black tank first, then grey to rinse it all out.

Fill your galley tank up in the sink until it is full and you see water backup in the sink and then open the dischage valve you think is the galley valve(smaller) at the outside wast drain connection. if your sink water level drops you picked right vave, otherwise it is the other one. maybe get some one to go outside and you stay inside and use walkee talkees or cell phones to communicate so you dont have to drain the whole tank to complete the test.
