1997 Triple E Empress questions

Hi. I am a new RVer and have a 1997 Triple E Empress. The monitor panel shows holding tanks 1 and 2, but which is the black water and which is the grey water tank? It doesn't say on the monitor and I haven't found it in the documentation. And more on the sensors. I am not getting correct readings on the holding tanks so think that the sensors may be dirty. How do I clean these?
One last query for now. My grey water tank is draining very slowly now. This is a recent problem according to my family who also use the rv.
Thanks for any info on these questions.

One way to tell is to run water in the tub,sink till you see the levels rise do this after you know they are both empty. There is products to put in the tanks to clean them but they get tarnished and dirty and sometimes won't come clean they are other people here in the forum that have cleaning ideas too you can try. The slow drain tank could be the plug from when they cut the hole in the tank and did not pull it out, if it's a cable system could need adjustment.

Here's a link to the GEO method to clean tanks.

The GEO method is a cool idea that will work I'm going to use it.
