Maybe I'm off base, but if you have 2 separate grey water level indicators, there should be 3 valves, at least that is the configuration I have always seen. There may still only be one sewer hose connection though.

I just saw a video for a 27.5 LTS and it sure looks like there is a tank valve handle between the driver side wheels. Not a convienent location, but it's there.

Sometimes you have one connect midway on the rig for the shower/bathsink grey tank and the black tank. And another connection further back for the rear kitchen tank. I have no clue on this particular unit, but, I know others that have had a similar issue and that was the answer. They were only draining the mid tanks, not the rear tank.
Worth taking a look.

WOW, 2 grey tanks would make sense! Yep, hand fed the snake and never met resistance...so WHERE is the valve for it?????

Well T H A N K S to ALL on here you got me thinking. So first thing I did was do a walk around as the valves are marked. OK, Black and Grey, 2 valves, that is it! But as my Grey tank is dry since its in my driveway I opened it up and shined a light...yep, it goes straight to the grey tank...but...WHOA, what is that I see about ľ down on the right (toward the rear of the fiver, that is CLEARLY a connection!!!!!

So I walk along toward the rear, no label, no valve!

Then I think, lets check the the board in the hallway. YEP shows 2 tanks, so I push the button to get a reading on Tank 1 = EMPTY, then I push 2, FULL!!! AHA there are TWO tanks on my unit!!!

Go back outside and look under the slide and yep, there is a valve. I pull and water GUSHES out the low point drain!


PROBLEM SOLVED and a THANKS to all here for you help, suggestions and just making me think.

Then I found this on line (not on Jayco):

2016 Eagle HT 27.5 RKDS (my exact unit)

Gray Water Tank (gals.): 32 - 1/2
Gray Water Tank (Secondary) (gals.): 32 - 1/2 -

See more at: 2016 Jayco Eagle HT 27.5RKDS

Talked with 3 Jayco Service people, none of them knew, dealer told me the 2 Grey tanks were only on the larger units not on the Eagle HT series.

The Grey tank for the kitchen sink is located on the left side almost all the way to the rear, if you have a slide its at the end of the slide left rear looking at the rear bumper.

Be happy to take pics tomorrow if anyone wants.
