I emailed Jayco this morning. They said the tanks are 22.5 gallons each. The kitchen sink has one tank and the bathroom sink and shower have the other tank. I must admit I'm disappointed. I feel that most of the water we use is in the bathroom. It sure would have been nice to have a 30 gallon tank for the bathroom and a 15 gallon tank for the kitchen sink. Had I known this before we purchased, it may have been a deal breaker.

Caleb, how many grey water discharge valves are there? If only 1, why not make sure the discharge pipe cap is on tight and open the valve. This will equalize the grey tanks but you will have grey water at the cap. Another option is install another drain valve right at the outlet and then put a short piece of pipe with the tangs for the drain cap for sealing it up.

That's a good idea. Thanks!

Valtera makes a twist-on valve that would be perfect for this, if you have the ~8" it will add to the final outlet length. It allows you to equalize the levels with the grey tanks and gives you a "last line of defense" if one of your other valves, possibly difficult to reach under the bottom cover, decides to get baulky or fail or just leak a little bit. It is no fun to take the cap off and get a quart of "dark water" delivered at your unsuspecting feet!
