Help!!!!! 3470re

Need to know how many dump connections are installed on other units. I have 3 separate connections, 3 tanks, but manufacturer plumbed all three to only the black tank. Major issue having all grey & black water going to same tank. Any help or others experiencing same issue is greatly appreciated. Thanks, Dale.

We have the 3640 with three tanks (2 grey, 1 black) but they all have their own valve. There is, however, only one drain point. Is that what you are meaning?

Dale,
I have a Dutchman Denali with 3 dump valves all plumbed from their individual tanks but into one main dump line (just like Chalkie's trailer).
When I go to dump, I always dump the black water first and then dump one of the grey tanks, then close the black tank valve, and last dain the second grey tank to 'clean out the line'.

thank you gentlemen for your replies that is exactly what I was looking for. My unit has three tanks and three separate dump valves labeled galley bath and toilet. But the manufacture is plumbed all of the water directly into the black tank and has supplied me with three separate hose hook ups or openings but only one of them is functional. the engineer from the factory is telling us that it is not possible and that we are wrong.

thank you again for your help.

Dale,
Would it be possible for you to take a pic or two and post them here of what you are seeing that is the three separate hose hookups?

tohwould if I could but I am currently not at the trailer. I will be shortly unfortunately I don't know how to post a picture on the form using my cell phone. Just imagine looking at the opening or the connection port where you hook the dump tube to and seen three of them instead of just one that is my setup.
