Question about holding tanks Mini Lite 2506S

Just got our new Mini Lite and already love it! Do have a question about the holding tanks. I am adding a 5in square hose storage tube and just noticed that I apparently have two black water lines, one in combination with the gray water. What's the other one for? Probably something obvious I am missing...
See pic. Thanks, rfg

If im looking at the right floor plan you have a rear out door kitchen sink? it is it a separate grey tank for the out door sink?

You have a sink at the front, and a sink at the rear. They aren't going into the same tank. The odd ball is probably your kitchen. Why its black? Dunno.

Yes, there is an outdoor kitchen. I noticed that the gray water line coming into the one on the right is a smaller line so it must be that sink. Are the gray and black drains separate? If so, that is strange. Thanks. R

Usually there is one connection to the sewer. Do I disconnect one then do the other? Confused. Thx! Rfg

Thanks, Bob. Thought that might be the case. Now I understand the black tank flush purpose.

What seems strange to me is the one on the left in the pic seems to come from the kitchen sink.

It should. It's in the front where the kitchen is.

Good question. But with one toilet, you only have one "black tank" (by traditional understanding), so I wouldn't get too hung up on that.

Starting to understand the connections. Small gray pipe entering the side of blackwater could be the tank flush.

The front drain is for your front kitchen (Grey) . looks like they put the wrong color handle on the drain.
