Can't help with the Montana, but I had a Hitchhiker once with double grays. It had three T-valves all plumbed into one single 3" drain outlet. Just pull the right slide valve T handle for the kitchen gray water, they were marked with a label.

I presume the question is asked because the Montana has only two slide valves? If so, perhaps the manufacturer intended both grays to be drained simultaneously and plumbed it accordingly? Did they pull both slide valves' T-handles ( or three if so equipped)?

Also, if they're reading the level gauge it may be drained but the gauge still reads full?

Thank you for your responses, I guess they will have to wait it out and call Keystone in the Morning. Once again thanks.

Our Keystone has two gray tanks, and each has thier own valve. There may be a possibility that the vent for the front gray (galley) is blocked, and, sometimes our sink stopper looks like it's not seated in the drain, but it is, and drains slow around it.

Our '04 Montana has three valve handles. The one for the galley sink is just in front of the front left wheel. Hard to see if the slide is in. The others are in the front basement compartment. And all the tanks discharge into the same sewer connection. Hope this helps.

Once again thank you all for your attempts to help...the end result was about 10:20 p.m. another RVer came by and knew just where it was. It turns out it was on the back end of the unit. This is a rear kitchen unit so it guess it makes sense. I just hope the rest of their trip is more relaxing. They had a flat the first day out on this new unit. And today they were running head on into Cindy as they were in Alabama. Just hope they are out of the way of Dennis.
Thank you all again...
Wilma

Our dealer told us that the grey emptied through one valve. Didn't seem right, but he's the expert, right?

We were out this weekend (first trip) and the galley tank was filling up. Dumped the tanks, but the galley tank still showed nearly full. Looked all around, and finally found the third valve tucked up under the coach near the axles.

God, it pays to be patient some times!

Hope your friends have the worst of it behind them!

Juan
