2017 Voltage 4150 tank heater question

This model has 2 black tanks and 2 grey tanks along with 2 fresh water tanks tied together. There are only 3 tank heater switches in the control cabinet. Dont want to assume and dealership called Dutchmen but couldnt get an answer on this. From left to right on switches would #1 be the Master bathroom black tank, #2 Grey tank for Master / Kitchen and #3 be actually for both rear Black / Grey tanks together? In some cases we dont use the rear bathroom / shower at all if its a short weekend trip to save on tank cleanings so want to make sure should temps be below freezing i only use heater switches on the tanks we are using. Any insights would be appreciated.

One thing is for sure, you have three switches for tank heaters.

The rest is a SWAG as to what switch goes to which tank. Using common sense and logic is kind of lost on the manufacturer's products.

If you want to be sure which tank is controlled by which switch you'll need to troubleshoot the tank/switch relationship. Good thing is, you only have to do it to two switches.

The switches are put in the panel, someone strings wire to the tank heater and someone else puts it together. From there it's all free thought and association.

Unless you want to be sure that all three actually work!
