    Holding tank size

    Does anyone know the size of the two gray water tanks? It seems that the kitchen one fills much faster than the shower.

    A good question that I'd also like the answer to. Most manufacturers use the same tank capacity for all three...grey, black and galley. Ours are listed grey/galley total - 75 gal and black - 43 gal...probably 3 different capacities.

    Hopefully we'll get a response of the tank capacities...the physical layout of the tanks would be helpful too.

    There's definitely 3 tanks, Nick as there's 3 remote valves in the docking station.

    Then you won't really have 75 gal capacity because one tank will always be full before the other. Bummer, wish I'd picked up on that.

    Nick,

    One gray tank is for the kitchen only and the other is for the shower and bathroom sink. They fill separately.

    I wonder how difficult it would be to tie the two grey tank drains together somewhere north of the drain valves? I think that would make the tanks fill together and equalize themselvs (in theory). That assumes they are mounted on an equal plane. Hmmmm. Dang! There I go thinking like an engineer again . Maybe a question for the tech guys.

    According to our dealer, our Solitude has 3 tanks. Two for gray (45 gal. each) for 90 gal capacity, and a black tank with a 45 gal capacity.
    One gray tank is for the kitchen area, and the another is for the shower/sink. As Steve said they fill separately and empty separately.

    I would think the Reflection has the same setup.

    The Solitude specs show 90 gal grey water capacity, the Reflection 75.
