Grey water tank issues

We have a zinger 33bh and it has dual grey tanks, but it will only fill one tank, the other never gets full. The water just backs up into the shower once the first tank is full. Is there a switch or something?

No, it looks to me like your shower, sink, and front sinks all go into one gray tank. The outdoor kitchen goes to another. There is no cross-connection, in yours or any other TT's. So, when your front tank gets full, (usually from showering), then that is it. There are some expensive solutions for moving gray water into a black water flush, but that's beyond this conversation. Your front tank gets full first.

Did you run water into your outside sink? Does it drain on the ground or go into the gray water tank?
There is a way to let 1 tank flow into another tank. On the outside sewer drain add a twist on waste valve. Close it, and open the valve to both tanks.

The twist on valve only works if both gray tanks empty thru a single 3" dump outlet. Some units like my previous Cruiser had two 3" outlets with no common point between the 2 gray tanks and that required more tricks to fully utilize both.

Thanks Dayle for your input. Forgot that some have two sewer outlets.
