Just purchased this fifth wheel and thought the kitchen drain was clogged because it backed up into the sink. The monitor for the tanks shows the grey water empty after dumping but the galley still shows full. I'm assuming there is a separate holding tank for the galley but how do you empty it? Other fifth wheelers have told me that they should all be together.
When I look at the manual for this model it only reads that there maybe 4 tanks but does not go into detail on were the drain valves are. The grey and black tank valves are side by side in the front of the trailer but all I can see from the back of the trailer were the galley tank has to be is a black drain pipe running to the dump outlet.
Need your help in Arkansas.
Thanks

There is a third drain valve on the left side between and slightly above the tires

Our galley drain valve is in the sewer hose storage compartment, you have to take the hose out first.

Yup.Found this out on our new Montana as well. Driver side,probably under the slide behind and between the tires. Great place to put one !! I found our when I was lubing the slides.

My 2003 Montana had the galley drain behind the street side rear tire. My 2008
Montana had the galley drain in front of the street side front tire.

Just want to say thank you to all of you who responded with the correct information.
I thought I had to be the dumbest person in the world but now the #1 in that catergory is the designer who came up with that location.
Anyway the problem has been resolved and a thank you to all of you who replied.

On our 2000 Montana it's between the tires, quite a crawl to get to it, so I had another drain installed in the line just above the final dump valve. It's a lot easier to get too. Sometimes I wonder if any of the designers have ever used one of the trailers that they build, I can't believe the lack of common sense in putting the dump valve in such an akward place. Dumb, dumb,dumb.

This caught me off guard on our Montana as a rookie RVer in 2006. The usual location is near the tires on the driver side.
