2 black tanks

We recently bought used 2014 Denali 311 bhss and I can't figure out the control panel. It indicates 2 black tanks but there is only one black release valve. How is this possible? Would each black tank have its own release valve.

I have a brand new Aerolite and the control panel has status buttons and indicator lights for 2 Black tanks and 2 Gray tanks. However, the controls are redundant for each tank since I only have 1 of each.

During my walkthrough it was explained that they use the same panel for all models and that since I have only one of each tank I should just use the reading for BT1 and GT1. Interestingly as the tank fills, I get the same reading regardless of which button I press. Example: if black tank is 1/2 full for BT1, I get 1/2 reading for BT2 which doesn't exist.

Two gray tanks

Consider yourself luck to only have one set of tank. Dutchmen and their wisdom put two gray tanks on the 266RL. Now I have two set of Hoses I have to set up and the stupid gray tank for the kitchen is under the living room slide, I'm not crawling under the stupid thing so, I have to slide the room in, in order to open the valve unless permanently set up with a Y connection. Not one of the smartest Idea's. How hard would it have been to run a line to the main valve to you only have one hose to set up.
This is not the best RV I have ever had by a long shot.
