    Which Is The Black Water Gate Valve

    When i am looking at the sewer outlet on my Pioneer BH270 which valve is for the Black Water? Left or Right?

    Am i must missing the label... otherwise it would be nice if you labeled these either on them or in the manual... not the kind of thing i want to take a 50/50 on

    Thank you,
    Bryan

    Left will be the grey tank, right will be the black. The toilet drains directly into the black tank which puts the black tank at the rear.

    Two other ways to tell . . .

    Chances are that one of the drain handles is black and the other gray

    Plus, the gray tank pipe (right) coming into the drain (where the two handles are) has a smaller pipe than the black tank drain pipe (left).

    Here is ours:

    On our Prowler both sides are identical.

    Can you show us some pictures?

    Also, you could just 1/2 fill a tank and leave the other tank empty, then use that to figure out which tank is which.

    It's easy to figure out on travel trailers with setups like ours. Black tank is the rear because the toilet is in the rear and on top of the black tank.

    Re: Which Is The Black Water Gate Valve

    This is a great question. Had I never of used a camper before I would not know either. We just bought a BH270 as well and found that ours are labeled wrong. The gray(grey) water tank is the left side and our black is the right side. But the labels are switched. We normally would empty our tanks black first then gray. Imagine our surprise when grey came out first. It's not a big deal per say. Just annoying that the attention to detail isn't there.

    With the other issues we are having with it, I may have been better off just staying tent camping. At least if my Coleman tent had issues I could call Coleman and they would send me new parts, no questions asked. Here it seems like a lot more hassle to get anything addressed.

    From the LP gas lines, to plumbing not draining, fridge not working, wires hanging every time the slide moves in and out. trim pieces not installed properly. Door bumpers falling off while driving. I have no idea how this unit passed a quality assurance.
