Black water out of grey tank

So, I just bought a 2018 Eagle BHOK. This past weekend was it's maiden voyage. Everything was going well until I went to drain the tanks. Somehow black water came rushing out of my grey tank dump. I have no clue how this happened. Does anybody have or had any experience with this? I assumed that would be impossible... if it was plumbed correctly. Meaning, the plumbing and tanks are independent of each other, correct? I'm at a loss here. Probably going to bring it in for some warranty work.

Mislabeled? What came out of the black tank?

Do you have the sani con?

I do and I know with it I have an extra gate valve or two than those that don't. It is possible on my config to have both gray(two forward gray tanks) and black tank open at the same time with would essentially make one large tank. This would allow black matter into a gray tank.
Maybe you didn't have all the valves closed?

Also you know the order of the tanks from the front are black, gray, gray, and way at the back the small third gray.

I don't know if it is possible for it to be really plumbed wrong because the black tank is right under the toilet.

Maybe a label is wrong or the wrong color handle. Was installed at the factory.

Thanks guys. I'll see if its mislabeled. The dump in question is just aft of the basement. That's labeled "grey." Then moving farther aft it goes "black" and the "grey." This model does have a rear half bath. I don't know if that means anything.

Just noticed there is more than one "BHOK" so sorry but I cant help much for the model you have because it is different than what I got.

I suspect you have the 347BHOK. The website list 3 gray tanks and two black tanks on your unit.I would say there is a good chance one or more could be mislabeled.

Don't listen to the order of the tanks here, this is for 29.5BHOK.
