Help !

Ok on our third outing with our new to us 2011 Montana Mountaineer 347 THT. Kitchen sink won't drain, tank level indicator shows GALLEY tank full, even though the MORON that did our "PDI" at "NEVER AGAIN" CAMPERS INN MOCKSVILLE, NC told us it don't have a galley tank ! I looked between the wheels, no handle or shaft, i drained the black, and grey tanks this am, galley tank still shows full ! HELP ! HOW DO I DRAIN THE GALLEY TANK !!!

Help !

My 3100RL has the two obvious handles in the wet bay and a third located under the trailer, within 8 inches of the main drain, to the right of it, that looked like a small drain hose. That is the valve lever. The T handle that should be on mine was lost before I bought the trailer.

Where is the valve lever and what do you drain it to?

No, it doesn't. I looked your model up and it says you have 1 grey tank, not two.

The monitor reading full is a common problem, mine does all the time too. When you say the sink won't drain, do you mean there is literally standing water in the sink with the strainer removed?

The tech that did the PDI said it dont have a galley tank. May just be the sink is stopped up. But the moniter reading has me stumped. All other drains, are draining normal

I think you are on the right track (stopped up sink). Don't trust that monitor until you can prove its working.
When you opened your grey water valve, did you get any any discharge?

The drain gate pull handles are probably in a different area. Look for an outside door, the stain pull handles will be in one of them. LP tanks will be in one and you should see another door with the drain handles.

Short of climbing on top ive looked everywhere, opened every thing, took pictures of everywhere i looked came sat down looked at all of them zoomed in/out, no valve.
Do you think there would be a galley tank listed on the monitor if there wasn't one , I'm baffled, even been all under the camper on a creeper !

That smaller line in picture..........it ties into larger drain line correct?

WHERE is the valve on that line? Can't see where it ties into larger line and IF there is a valve there???
Have you looked inside in cabinets/followed kitchen sink drain line down looking for a valve?

Old-Biscuit got under the camper on a creeper, the small line comes out of the floor close to the axle and runs into the main drain line about 4 feet from the end cap. No valve anywhere that i have found ! I'm stumped! Went to lowes brought a zink plunger and a 2ft plastic snake thing with barbs, neither of them phased it !

here is the 2011 brochure, doubt it will be much help.
http://www.keystonerv.com/media/3243...r_Brochure.pdf

You do have to have 2 grey tanks. The specs say you have 93 gallons of grey water and I doubt that all goes into one tank.
