My current questions is: while trying to figure out the camper and make a list of things I need to purchase, I noticed what appears to be two separate dump valves on the left hand (driver side) side of the trailer. I haven’t found anything definite for this particular model, but I see where some have two grey tanks, one for shower and one for kitchen. Based off of that information, am I correct in thinking the black and shower grey are hooked to the front drain, and the kitchen is hooked to the separate rear drain? To avoid having to switch the hose, I’d also guess I would need two stinky slinky’s and a “T” with a short hose to connect to the dump station? Sorry for the long thread, just trying to be as thorough as possible. Thanks in advance for any information anyone can offer.
Yes, you are correct on your thinking.
On my 5th wheel there are two grey tanks. One for the bathroom sink and shower and one for the galley. (kitchen sink)
I have THREE handles and TWO sewer ports.
One drain port for the galley tank with its own grey colored dump valve handle, one drain port for BOTH the 2nd grey and the black tanks each having their own dump valve handles. (one grey, one black colored)
When dumping at a dump station, I just use one hose.
I connect to the black/grey dump port and dump the black tank 1st, then dump the grey water for the bath/shower, thereby cleaning the hose. Then I move the hose to the galley port and dump that.
At a dump station you don't want to be hooking up a bunch of hoses or adapters to slow down the waiting line that often occurs at a dump station.
Now... when we are on a full hook up site, staying for more than a day or two, Yes... I do hook all of the dump ports together into one hose and then to the in-ground port. My stuff looks like this...
