How do I dump my grey 1 tank?

We just bought an 31.5 Eagle FBHS and can't figure out how to dump the "grey 1" tank. Where the black tank handle is, we dumped that grey handle but it only dumped the "grey 2" tank.... Help?!?

There should be 3 handles, one for each grey and the black.

One of the handles, like on my 322FKS is about 8 foot forward of the other two.

We have a 31.5 RLTS, so it's a entirely different floor plan. Because your kitchen is in front of your bathroom, I have to assume that your kitchen grey tank is several feet in front of black tank valve. That's also assuming that your black tank and bathroom tank valves are fairly close together.h

On my 29.5 the rear most pull handle is the rear grey tank, and pulls towards you. The next one forward is very slightly darker colored and is the black handle, again pulls towards you. Forward of that, a little further underneath is the other grey tank pull, which pulls at a slight downward direction, unlike the others and harder to reach (and to see).

There should be two very discreet decals saying "gray tank" and one saying "black tank" somewhere on the lower side of your fiver at the location of the dump valve handles. At least that is what is on ours. The one gray tank lever is right above the black tank lever and I have to get right down on the ground and look up under the side panel to see it. Good luck...gotta find the dump handles for sure

Yes, ours has those 3 decals, two exactly where the handles are, and the third, well, it's about 3 feet away from the actual handle. Guess the assembler who installed those decals that day got distracted before he got the third one on. Oh well, 2 out of 3 ain't too bad !

I too have a 31.5 Eagle FBHS. During travel, the forward grey tank valve handle jiggled off. I purchased a aftermarket handle, but when attached to the org valve shaft, the valve will not close. I need to get with Jayco and get a replacement handle. I tell you this to say, if you only have the two handles located back of the tires and not one located in front the the tires, then yours may have jiggled off in travel. Shorty

I purchased a twist lock shutoff valve to go on the end of the dump pipe on my camper. I close this valve and then open both grey tank valves. This allows the two tanks to equalize making one large grey water tank. When I go to the dump station I close the two grey water valves and then empty the grey water that's captured in the pipe. Then I take off the twist off valve and proceed with normal dump procedure.
