grey water 1 or grey water 2

I just started staying in my Eagle this weekend, and I checked my gauges this evening and found that my grey water #2 is 2/3 full. So I go outside to my grey water valves and they both say grey water holding tank. Is #1 the bathroom/shower holding, and #2 the kitchen? How am I supposed to know? I know I'll ask all the super intelligent people on this forum. Oh it's a 2015 338RETS, but I'm guessing that will not matter so much.

I don't know, but I would try emptying one of the two valves and then check the gauge. Shouldn't be hard to figure out...

and once you determine which is which, label them. I purchased my current 5th used, and fortunately he did just that.

That is a question that most have the first time of use. You would think that if you look at the valve pulls, the one farthermost to the front of the rig would be the. Valve for the drain nearest the front.
Sometimes it may but as others have said, you will likely have to verify them by pulling one and using which grey goes down on the idiot lights inside.
From then on you will know. I marked mine inside and outside with kitchen and bath labels.

What I did is connect all hose and water line. Have someone inside and myself by the control levers. I have a clear plastic elbow on my sewer connection, so I can see what is being discharged. I puller Lever 1 and have person inside start in bathroom, turning on water in sink. If I seen the water at the sewer discharge I made note of it. If I seen no discharge water I pushed that lever in and open lever # 2. I continued this process until I had tested the bathroom sink, shower, kitchen sink . I would tell my outcome but you need to do this yourself to be 100% sure how your rig is configured. On my trailer Black water is only the commode. Hope this helps.

I also have a 2015 338RETS. On mine the #1 grey tank is for the combo washer/dryer prep, located in the bedroom closet. The tank is directly below it. The valve is under the front bedroom slide out. The #2 grey tank is the normal grey tank used for the sinks and shower. That valve is located in the middle of the trailer between the 2 slide outs.

What he said; let me add a little bit in case you are at a place where you can't dump.

Both tanks are separate so if you don't have a W/D you won't use the front tank at all. There is a way to get around this if you need to. If you'll get a twist on gate/waste valve you can put that on the end of the sewer drain on the trailer. Then open both of the gray tanks and they will balance and you can keep the gate valve closed so you don't dump.

Here is a link; http://www.campingworld.com/shopping...on-valve/27868

Or you can do what I did the first time and just leave the cap on then take a little grey water bath when you take the cap off at the dump site.

thanks for the responses ... experience is great. Did a test dump, #2 the one at the back of the TT is the one that was filling, and #1 has yet to show a level reading probably confirming the post saying that is for the W/D which I do not have. I may buy the valve to add to the dump outlet and open both of the grey tank valves to give me more capacity, more time to fill between dumps. Thanks for the responses.

The Twist on valve is the way to go. That tank is useless otherwise if you don't have a washer.
That alone would be a deal breaker for my needs.
