grey water full...newbie question

Okay all...we've got our trailer out for the third time. Have hooks up minus dump at the site. Grey water tank is reading full (which could very well be the case). My question is what does "full" really mean? I've got a 40 gal GW tank and were only here one more night. Are the sensors at the very top or are they a little lower? I'm really asking if I've got a little leeway for a few more gallons tonight?

I would GUESS that you may have 3 - 4 gallons. If you have a 5 gal. pail you could drain some off into that and go dump it.

Every rig is a little different but if it starts to back up the first place you'll see grey water is the shower. Of course be careful with water use in the morning and you'll be fine.

When you dump, try to create means to measure the total amount of gray water that comes out. Compare that to your "capacity".

Sounds like you may have a faulty sensor. If so, search this site for several solutions.

Thanks all! We made it through the night just fine...of course we were even more cautious with water usage and didn't have any dishes to wash! Now that we're home I will do a little more research on my trailer. Thanks for all the tips!
