Being new at this "camping stuff" be sure you have the correct hookup collar on the end of your slinky for the sewer drain. Don't just put the slinky in the sewer hole and leave it open. Most CGs frown on this and I've seen it many times. Good luck and enjoy your new TT.

I have a 54 gallon grey tank for our shower and bathroom sink....I have a separate gray tank for the galley, after my wife and I shower and showering two small ( 5 and 3 yrs old) I have to drain my shower grey tank.....you use more water than you think when you shower....sounds like everything is working properly

Thank you all so much! I have taken all of this into account, and we spent this past weekend using the camper for the second time. I know the grey was empty upon set up, and the kitchen drain worked perfectly. I was extremely cognisant of my water usage in the kitchen, and we opted to shower in the campground bathhouse. On Saturday evening, the kitchen drain slowed WAY down, and then quit draining altogether. Upon inspection, the tub had a small amount of water collecting right at the plug. Hubby went out and opened the grey valve and released a good amount into a large container, and the water drained properly. Seeing the water almost fill a 22 gal container, its easy to understand that 15 gal grey is just really REALLY small. I think we're good as long as we can keep a bucket or bin handy for a quick release during our trips. So far, we're on a 2 night weekend only schedule, so its not as inconvenient as it sounds.
