That does sound wierd... is the other tank only for the washer, or maybe some plumbing is hooked up wrong?

Robin says he will be hooking the two grey tanks together in any case, so they equalize and act like one. We will be doing a lot of boondocking and that will give us a much longer time before we have to dump, since the tanks would not be filling evenly otherwise.
I believe you would get a Y connection with a way to have the drain portion shut off.

We have the 36RL and have experienced the same problem with the two 45 gallon grey tanks. One fills quickly and the other doesn't. If someone figures out a good way to combine the two please post to the forum. Could it be done by adding an overflow pipe to the two tanks so when one is almost full it flows into the other?

The printed information that was provided in their brochure said that grey tank was 90 gallons which was very attractive. It didn't state that there were two different 45 gallon tanks. Very misleading. The answer is to combine the two!

Most RV's are done this way. They have 2 tanks, one for the bathroom and the other for the kitchen. One solution would be what Bryon (Kr2011) said to do. He's going to ad a valve that he can close down stream from the 2 grey water valves. Then with that valve closed and the 2 original valves open, they would both balance themselves in fluid levels

Depending on your tank configuration it can cost a bit. The belly has to be removed and the Plumbing has to be altered. When I was at the factory I saw how they put the tanks in the FL and I think it might not be possible because they stack the tanks. I did not pay close attention to which tank was where, so if the 2 grey tanks are on the bottom they could be connected together, possibly, then it will depend on the plumbing which I have not seen yet.

Has any one checked with the factory about this problem? We pick up ours on May 8th. I will be looking at that one ver carefully. Our Outback had 2 grey tanks 1 for shower and sink and 1 for the galley. I hoped it was the same with redwood

Per the plumbing drawing I have for the 36RL, one gray tank is for the Galley, while the other Gray tank services the Shower, Vanity, and the Washer. Similar to our Montana, except that on the Montana the Washer empties directly into the dump line so we have to have a full hookup to use the washer. You would have thought that Redwood could have put the washer into the galley tank as the only other thing going in is the kitchen sink, while the other has to handle the showers. We can do 4 showers into our current gray, any more and you're standing in water. So that tank usually gets dumped two to one of the galley tank.
