Full Hook up question

I have the Jayflight 27bhs and am wondering exactly how to hook up the dump connections when we expect to be at a particular location for several weeks. Specifically should i leave the grey water open and black water closed?
Thanks
Bob

Leave the black valve closed, open the gray valve until about a day or so before you leave then close it to save enough water to flush out the hose. When you are ready to leave open the black valve first close it then open the gray valve to flush out the hose.

Keep the black valve closed you don't want to end up with a poop pyramid. As for the grey water I'll leave mine open for extended stays but last day I'll close the grey and capture some so when its time to dump the black you got something to rinse to stinky slinky...

When I am at a full hookup site I keep them both closed and then dump them about every second or third day. I dump the black first and then the grey for the sink and then the grey for the shower. Our 5er has three tanks.

You should only dump the black tank when it is full..... you want to use the force of the flush to evacuate your black tank of all solid matter... if the tank is not full when you go to dump fill it first with fresh water... this will keep your black tank happy and trouble free for years

You are right. I always put 3-4 gallons of water in after dumping. When I dump I fill a pail with water and pour it down the drain when it quits running. You can't have too much water in the black tank.
