Entegra sink --> black tank

Do any of the sinks in the coach drain into the black tank?

No, they all go into the gray tank. Black is for sewage only.

OK...I can't speak to your model, but in the 2013 DEQ, the two sinks in the bathroom (we have one mid-coach) drain to the black tank. My understanding is any mid-coach bathroom sinks drain to the black, but I only know my model for sure...and I do know because I have used the bathroom sink to fill and clean with a fill and extra chemicals to remove some sludge/deposits which were interfering with the sensors measuring % use.

Same on my 2013 SL. I read some reasoning somewhere, but I can't recall the logic now. Maybe to get more liquid in the Black?

Actually I think in mine only the PS sink drains into the Black. (The SL has one bath mid-ship and the sinks are in two different locations.)

I believe on the RBQ the midship lav drains into the black tank. Read that here somewhere.

All models should have at least 1 lavatory sink going into the black tank. For double sink mid baths, both of those go into the black tank

On the DLQ both of the bathroom sinks drain to the black tank to make sure it gets enough water in it.

Thanks for the video link -- I don't remember hearing this.

All models with the double sink vanity have the forward sink draining into the black tank.

Not if Ann n Gene's post is correct. I have a DLQ and would like to know for sure.

Look...I know for a fact that those coaches that have a double lavatory in the mid-coach area empty to the black tank...but if you want to know for sure, then turn your water on and push the button twice on your reading device in your mid-coach bathroom, and you can watch the % full increase as you run water in the tank... you can push the button twice on your grey tank and see if the % increases on it.

Pushing the button twice puts a red dot in the lower right corner and it will stay on adjusting for a period of time, allowing for you to prove it to yourself....if you doubt those of us who have proven it to ourselves or been told by the manufacturer.

Yes, the mid coach sinks drain to the black tank. If you don't believe DSL417 above, another way to verify is to drain the black tank until there is no flow of liquids. Turn on the sinks and watch the water flow out the dump valve.

For those of you who can't believe it works this way because it doesn't on your other brand coach, just consider that an Entegra isn't just your every day coach! JMHO
