Does a 1990 Roadtrek Class B Motorhome Have Separate Gray And Black Water Holding Tanks?

by Ginny
(Lancaster, CA)

not sure if my 90 roadtrek has separate gray and black water tanks?

ANSWER: Greetings Ginny thanks for submitting your question on our Ask An RV Question Page.

Your Roadtrek Class B Motor Home should have separate grey and black water holding tanks. The easiest way to confirm this is to go to the sewer hookup on your RV and you should see two dump levers. One lever is for the grey tank and the other is for the black tank.

Just a reminder here; always dumps the Black Water Tank first then dump the Grey Water tank. The grey water will help clean out your sewer hose and allow for easier cleanup.

The second reminder is to always keep both dump valves closed even when you are hooked up to a sewer system at a campground. Once your tanks get close to full dump them and close the valves again. This is particularly important for the black water tank, if you leave the black water tank open when hooked up to the sewer the liquid will easily drain into the sewer, but the solid waste will build up in the bottom of the tank possibly creating a blockage.

We have a lot of good information on holding tanks on our website. Please take a look at the answers I gave to the questions below and that information will help you keep your holding tanks clean and problem free.
