We use a dishpan in the sink when washing dishes and then dump it into the black tank via the toilet. The sudsy water helps the black tank from becoming aromatic and it keeps the grey tank from filling up so fast.
My wife and I recently spent six nights at a state park with no sewer hookup. After both showering and using the RV facilities all six days, neither the black nor grey tanks were full yet. They were getting close, but not quite.
