Best and most obvious suggestion is to use the CG facilities whenever they are available and not filthy. I hear a lot of people talking about the "comfort" of their own bathroom, but I find most bathhouses in State Parks and decent private CG's to be clean and "private". These are not scout camp facalities with group showers and open toilets. Moving the basic hygene activities out of the RV when possible will greatly extend the life of your G and B holding tanks.

We also have a houseboat that presents similar challenges except that the grey water is discharged back into the water. The most frequent challenge is "fresh" water usage since we have a 150 gallon black tank. When the grandkids are out with us, the rule is that when we run out of water or fill the B tank, we head home. They want to stay out so they tend to listen. W/ the TT, we use the CG facilities when we can. If they are filthy, head to the CG office and get someone to do their job. CG's are competitive and with the internet, a bad review can spread like a wild fire.

So far I have not had a problem, But I have two grey tanks,
I only wash dishes once a day. usually after supper.
Even when the two of us were in the trailer, no problems.
Before the Jayco we had a Comfort no problems there either.

We've had the same problem with our grey tank filling in a few days from taking showers, doing dishes, ECG. We found the simple solution was to wait until dark. Then I sneak out and dump the thing in the grass and presto I have an empty grey tank!

Since we are allowed to wash dishes outside, I've started using the outside shower to fill a plastic dishwashing bin and do my dishes outside, but I need to get a table that's adjustable to my height as the little one I currently have is so short it hurts my back. But at least it's one way to save from filling up the grey water tank so quickly.

We do the euro-showers, wet, turn water off, soap up, turn water on and rinse off. Our children (age 3 and 7) have shallow baths, and usually only once a week as they swim so much and rinse off in the outside shower that they really don't need a bath more often than this. We may have to start walking to the public showers, which we can do but it's so much nicer to shower in our own shower.

For convenience, we wash our hands and brush our teeth (using a cup to save water) inside, which adds to our grey water.

Occasionally I wash the dishes inside (i.e. if it's pouring rain outside), but for the most part it's just washing hands, brushing teeth, quick showers (not daily) and baths once a week and we fill our grey tank usually daily.

Are the grey tanks on the 28BHS quite small?
We do use a lot of grey water too. To slow down the grey water production, paper plates, disposable utensils. Collect dishes for night time wash, hospital tubs in each sink fit perfectly, one for the wash and one for the rinse water as well as the other suggestions, navy showers- wet, lather rinse and shut the water off brushing teeth

I have the same space, or so it looks. My lCD TV lays down flat on the screen. There is a lip on the front of the shelf. I leave it connected and toss the remote in there too. Set it up right when I set up. It hasn't move in transport ever and it's going on 5 years

How about using some of the grey water to put out your fires at night. I've heard of some people doing this. Just carry a bucket and use it for that. It will help some

How do you know there is no stud behind that wall ? How about the cabinet wall to the right. You could reinforce that area and install a swinging support there. Got to be a way, the small flat screens are very light.

I remember reading somewhere, that you can combine the grey tank and black tanks together for more capacity, but I can't remember where. It did mention that on early campers, they only had one tank.
Can't say that I would do it, but just FYI
