Dump handles

Post by ssadventurebus »

Our trek 2430 2000 seems to have tank dumping handles reversed. The grey colored one controls black water black handle controls grey water. Is this how it is or did someone sometime switch them?
Thanks

Carol (ssadventurebus),
IMO that's not a problem ... (as long as you know & remember which is which).
However if it bothers you the handles can easily be switched.

The color of the handles has no relationship to the tank it drains.
The easiest way to know which is which is the size of the pipe (valve). The smaller one is always the grey water and bigger one is always the black tank.
Problem solved.

Thanks I just verified pipe size. But I still think it is stupid that the grey handle controls black water and black handle is the grey water.
