At this point I'd suggest a call to the factory. See if someone there can tell you exactly how your plumbing is supposed to be put together.

I don't what your coach's floor plan is like, but if the kitchen sink and shower are almost back-to-back, I suppose it is possible that the kitchen sink drains into the shower drain and then into the grey tank. If there is a plug below that connection you could get soapy water from the kitchen sink coming up in the shower. Not too likely, I admit, but might be remotely possible.

If that isn't the problem, I would start by dumping the tanks, both of them, as I have heard some strange things about rv manufacturers routing one of the sinks or the shower to the black tank, plumbing install mistakes, etc.

When in doubt, I dump and rinse, and go from there.
WELL guess WHAT AFTER 4 DAYS OF DRAIN CLEANERS a snake out and after I drained my black tank all the problems disappeared Wow never would thought of that for sure . Thanks to all for the help and I can't figure why that happened and I will see if it happens again after using the black tank for a while

Do you think maybe they drain into the black tank?

Are the grey and black drains perhaps mislabelled?

FWIW how about some food coloring in each sink to see what tank it comes out. Different color for each sink will tell the story right away.
