My previous bath and a half had two black tanks and one grey tank. While I liked the simplicity of two black tanks it did cause me one issue. The grey tank drain was in the compartment with the forward black tank drain. Since I wanted to drain the grey tank last to help flush the slinky, I had to drain the rear black tank first and then back up to drain the forward black tank and finally the grey tank. Sometimes this meant posting my wife at a distance behind the RV to ensure nobody pulled up close behind me so I had room to back up. I know the CS 3610 has two black tanks but I’m not sure if it has one or two grey tanks and where the grey tank drain is located.

This "feature" is what I referred to in my post #2 above. My 2003 KSCA was not built that way, and I cannot fathom "why" Newmar would think having the owner dump the two black tanks independently is a good idea. It seems to me, if they could connect the tanks to a single outlet in 2003, they could do so today.

Perhaps the owner posting above can confirm if this is how the current model is built.

The two tanks empty into the same 3" sewer pipe and both valves are in same dump location, in ten years has not posed a problem for me.
A third valve same location is for gray tank.
Both black tanks have the gyrating rinse also.

Thanks 007. If indeed all three tanks dump via the same outlet with separate valves then that is certainly no problem. Dave Garl's response to me was vague. He said two tanks, two valves on my question to him about the black water tanks but did not specify arrangement. If it is as you say then that is no problem and also nice to hear that both have the clean out spray mechanism. Thanks for all the info you provide to the forum members!

I believe Roger (007) was explaining how his signature coach is arranged, which is the same as I had.....NOT an explanation of how the current CSCA is arranged.

3610

I have seen videos on youtube on the 3610 and 3953 and the rear black tank shows a dump valve in the rear DS compartment.
If they do not run a line to dump in the service bay, I wonder where they dump the gray water from the shower?

If in this post as described it is incorrect would someone with the three holding tanks correct me so we all know how the two black tanks are dumped on a Canyon Star. Pictures would be good also.

OK HAVE YOUR ANSWER THE 14:15 MARK APPROX, YOU WILL SEE REAR BATH DUMP IN THE ELECTRIC BAY THAN FORWARD WILL BE THE OTHER 1/2 BATH WITH GRAY TANK DUMP.

Looks like you will need a 'Y" connector to tie both dumps to a sewer dump line.
Can see why its done this way my rear and 1/2 bath dump is to the rear of the duel tires well, the CS 1/2 dump is forward of the rear duels not to easy to run pipe through the wheel well. do not see a problem with "Y " connector just extra hosing.

The following YouTube video clearly shows dump valves in two separate locations, water compartment and electrical compartment :
