Grey Tank Black Tank Need A Little Help

I've been an owner of an Open Range RT320RES for a week or so now and have my first dilemma. My wife ran the kitchen sink and eventually the sink filled up. When I opened the grey tank valve only about 2 quarts of water came out and the sink didn't drain.

My shower didn't back up, nor did the bathroom sink. I drained the black tank (big mistake) but that didn't make a difference. I removed the p-trap and it was clear.

Any thoughts?

Does your unit by some chance have 2 grey tanks, I know some Open Range units have a separate gray tank for the kitchen sink.

Nice to have an easy fix but I am curious as to why the black tank was a big mistake.

The previous owner told me all tanks had been winterized with water and anti-freeze. I guess his definition of winterizing a black tank is don't empty it after using it. When I opened the valve to dump the "water and anti-freeze" from the black tank I end up with a pile of waste.

Guess that was his little "surprise" for you!
