Is the shower supposed to drain to the GRAY tank?
« on: November 02, 2020, 07:16:20 PM »
We have a 16TBS 2018

We have tested and our shower drains to the BLACK tank.
We drained all tanks. Poured buckets into the shower. Drained again and the water came out the black tank (gray remained empty).
This seems odd to us. The Gray tank is bigger and shower water is gray water.

Is the shower supposed to drain to the GRAY? 
How are other trailers set up?

We are wondering if it came from the factory hooked up wrong.

We have a 2018 CL RBS 21 Plat.  The shower drains into the gray tank which, when we are in a rv camp, is hooked to sewer and is open to sewer.  Other wise our black tank would over flow in 2 or 3 showers.  Of course we would drain it in such a circumstance but it not supposed to be that way.  At least in my trailer.  Does the sink water drain to the grey tank?

We just bought our 2017 16TBS , and everything I've ever seen in years of shopping rigs is sink and shower are grey water, the commode is the only black water tank source. I have not gone under the rig to verify the condition and tightness of all the hose clamps and hoses (and where they go), though.....

Thanks for the replies.
Yes, the kitchen sink drains to the gray tank. It is the only thing going to the gray tank.
hmm....seems like they messed up (shower should go to gray tank) but they won't fix it.

For some reason, around 2018 they changed their plumbing to drain the shower to the black tank.  That is the way they were built but is certainly not standard.  Unfortunately, it was not a mistake.

We have a 2018 CL21RBS Plat.  The shower drains into the grey tank as does the sink and the kitchen sink.
