No, just separate tanks on the RV. They all come out the same outlet and into the same sewer system at parks. Just like your house, it all goes into one main drain..

I went to seminar at FMCA rally that addressed this. They advised of making a connection between grey and black tank, with a water pump, so that grey tank water could be utilized for toilet flush. If your grey tank got full, just activate and flush toilet. I didn't make the conversion as I don't boondock often, and my grey tank holds more than black (60/40).

I have known RVers that plumb their gray water over to their black tank when the gray becomes full. I would think a valve would be required. Second a blue tank if you are a long stay camper at one location.

Like some others, we also wash our dishes in a plastic basin (in the sink), and then dump that water down the toilet. This helps to keep our grey water tank levels down and adds necessary water to the black tank.

Being it's just the two of us using the toilet, most of the time, we can easily fill the grey tank much quicker than the black tank.

Before we dump, I also like to bring up the water level in the black tank. I use a plastic door stop, like this one, and wedge it in the foot pedal that flushes the toilet.
