Flow rate when I drain the tanks

I have a 18 Eagle 338 RETS trailer. 1 black water tank and 2 gray water tanks. The black water tank drains fast. The two gray water tanks drain really slow. Anyone have any ideas? I wait till all three tanks are full when I dump. Not lot by gauges. The bathroom tanks is full because the water starts to fill the sink.

The Black drain pipe is twice the size as the grey.

If it is really slow like minutes to empty then you could have a blockage in the line. Consider trying a snake to probe for leftover construction trash, muck or maybe some paper that got washed down the drain. DO NOT USE A POWER AUGER TYPE SNAKE! Instead get a small manual one and go slowly so you don't damage the pipes. Be very careful you don't damage the valve seal.
