Nothing but a couple showers and general clean up and water started backing up in the kitchen sink. I assumed the kitchen would be on one tank and the bathroom on another. It seems insane to put the shower and the kitchen sink together and leave the bathroom sink on its own tank. Did they do something that goofy? The shower and kitchen are going to produce far more gray water than the little bathroom sink. Say it ain't so.
As explained by others that is the way it is designed. When I had my unit at Orvan's this past June he offered (as he was installing a regular trap to the shower) to switch the shower drain to the bathroom sink grey tank. I elected not to do that as the pipes may have interfered with getting all the things into my pass through bay that I needed to (truck bed cover for one). Also at some point in time I may add a washer.
I do keep the kitchen/shower grey tank valve open when camping as if you don't you will probably see water rising in kitchen sink
. I do tend to close it the night before leaving for rinsing hose after dumping black tank.
