You will fill the grey several times for each black fill. Forget the indicator lights, they lie, as others have stated.

One way to check is to turn off the water, or turn off the FW pump if boondocking, push the flush pedal, and look with a flashlight. If you cant tell where the level is, just spit, or drop some water to see the splash. It takes a looong time to fill a black tank

That is until I look back over my shoulder and I see my wife almost in tears from the laughter. Apparently my brain had somehow blocked out her howls of hysterical relief.

I would add "Experience is what you get when you didn't get what you wanted."

Glad that things went well for you, even if it wasn't perfect. I haven't had the experience you had when you removed the cap, but I'm always nervous when dumping and at least double check what I'm doing. In fact, I always rotate the cap and pause a bit just in case even though I haven't had your 'experience'.

If my sensors start acting up for a few tips I add a 1/2 cup of liquid fabric softner, after dumping. It seams to help with clearing the debris on the sensors, I do this with the Grey tank too.
