VTDP4369 1/2 Bath Plumbing

Since getting our 17 4369 I have noticed that we can only go about 5 days before the black tank is ready to dump. I recently put both toilets on the low water flush but that didn't change our 5 day range much.

Is the 1/2 bath sink plumbed into the black tank?

I would be happy with 5 days! We get only 2.5 days. Math works out though as we have 4 and I assume you have 2 people.

I do not think any of the sinks are plumbed to the black tank.

5 days sounds about right for our 17DSDP

1/2 bath should not be, but might be something to verify.
Five days on high flow, sounds right. Be careful when switching to low flow that toilets donít clog up.

As said 5 days would be amazing, 3 tops for us. It hasnít happened yet, but if we were to dry camp, I would probably designate one bath for #1 and the other for #2, adjusting #1 to the lesser setting. I agree that the Macerator toilets are much happier with lots of water. Stuart

Youíre correct Stuart, weíre about 3 days.
Are you going to affix a sticker designating bath is for what?
Neil, are you ok?

All joking aside, switching between modes is clunky and changes accidentally at times.

Gravity flush toilet is key. My guess is 1/3rd less water than the macerator toilet.

So no one knows 100% for sure that the 1/2 bath sink isn't plumbed into the black tank? I have never had an RV with these types of toilets before but we have been full time in other RVs.

Guess I need to run a quick test this morning and determine where that 1/2 bath sink water is actually going.
