Grey Water tank draining

My grey wayer tank shows 2/3 full after valve has been open for a long period of time. I have been living in my camper for the last two months waiting on a house. I have already had to flush out the black tank due to a build up of SOMETHING..... How do I flush out the grey tank, any thoughts???

It could just be from condensation build up on the tank walls.

Close the drain valve, add a cup or so of dish water detergent, and all of the hot water your rig's tank has. If you were to drive around that would help alot. If not ,wait a bit drain and repeat. Oh fill as close to top if staying stationary

Could also be that your sensor is incorrectly reading the level. OEM tank sensors are notorious for wrong readings. Suggest you consider installing a set of Horst Miracle Probes to replace the original ones. They really do work.
