Unhappy 2011 32BHDS Rear Kitchen plumbing issue

Hello

We just upgraded our 2009 28bhs to a 2011 32bhds with the rear outside kitchen, very nice unit.

We did a couple short weekend trips after we got the unit with the first trip to a full hook up camp ground and found out that the rear kitchen sink drains into the black tank , we had to drain the black tank daily

Now the black tank fills up really fast and the grey tank hardly gets used as we use the outside kitchen a lot.

Is this normal for the outside sink to be plumbed to the black tank

I think jayco should have installed a second grey tank

We mostly dry camp at a provincial park camp ground for a week at a time and never fill the black tank with our old trailer, but have to drain the grey every 2-3 days , it's only soapy water so no big issue

now it is a daily duty to drain and do a honey wagon run with black and grey water

We talked to our local Jayco dealer and they where not aware that the outside kitchen drained into the black tank, they emailed Jayco and where told that is the way they did those models

the local dealer will do anything we want to fix the issue at our cost of course , i think jayco should pay for it.

we called jayco also and where told to put a buck/ tub in the rear sink to do dishes then dump that bucket into the inside kitchen sink , they said basicly too bad your stuck with it , not a waranty or design issue in there eyes


any thoughts , call jayco again ???

thanks

lots of manufactures do that... have one sink that drains into the black to help with flushing

Since it was designed that way I don't see how Jayco was at fault. I would not of thought to call Jayco and I would of assumed it drained into the grey tank. I believe your only solution is to pay the dealer to replumb the outside kitchen drain to the grey tank.

Hi Chris and welcome to the Jayco Owners Forum. I can see how frustrating it would be to have to drain the tank quite often. Nice that you could post the info on that particular set-up so others shopping for the same model will know ahead of time how the plumbing drains. Have ya got pics of your outdoor kitchen? Post some pics when ya can.

I was thinking that just last weekend. How nice it would be if the gray tank drained through the black tank, of course only when the gray valve was pulled.

Dump the black, then shut valve, then dump gray to black, then open black again if you want a soaking effect, or leave black open and gray would run through black to sewer.

Just was thinking ......

Hello

A update , I had emailed Jayco about how the back kitchen drain

they where extremly polite, here is what they said

It is the intended design and any modification of this system is not recommended and must be at the customer expense as this modification could void the warranty in regards to any issues that it may cause. In this I am not able to assist you in your request. This is simply not something Jayco will participate in. I do apologize for your disappointment.

At least they where very polite this time

I will look at running a line from the rear sink to the grey tank my self with a couple shut off valves , so i can drain the back sink into either the black or grey tank

here are a couple pics of the rear kitchen

this unit is really nice

I have included a few pictures of the outside, the inside kitchen area with big u shaped dinnette that extends and the j-sofa plus and rear bedroom with the trundle bed option , you can see this option gives you 3 drawers for storage just above the trundle bed , the j-futon you do not have the 3 drawers, i have also included a couple pictures of the outside kitchen

Sorry they only allow 5 pictures per upload , here are a couple more pictures

The add a room is from our 2009 28bhs ,it fit on the new trailer pretty good,we really love our add a room , gives you a lot more space when company comes over or if you just want to keep your stuff out of the rain , in colder weather he have a propane heater in the add a room and it heats up the room quite well , lots of ventllation still so no issue of carbon monoxide

not sure how much use the add a room will get with the bigger floor plan

Added a wind block to the door for the outside kitchen

love that the bathroom has a outside door.

still want to add a extra outside light by the outside bathroom door, the only outside light in under the awning and when you have the add a room up , you can not see the outside light if the flaps for the add a room walls are down

Yep

that's elvis , my daugthers guinea pig

we love the u-shape dinnette a lot , fits 5 people just the way it is , no problem with room to spare , extend the seats and there you go 2 more spots

Our 2004 8U tent trailer had the u-shape dinnette and it was great for playing games

everyone has a little more elbow room with the u-shape dinnette

On our 28bhs we where always hitting each others elbows , and it only had room for 4 people
