Black/Gray Tanks - need both?

Hi All,

In the interest of keeping-it-simple I'm considering a single 100 gallon black water tank instead of the traditional black and grey tanks.

The only thing that I can think of that might be an issue is "sloshing" while on the road sucking the trap water from sinks and letting vapors into the bus. That, I think, could be dealt with with a big ball valve to seal the sink drain while in motion.

What do you all think?

Jake.

thats what im doing on our bus, since we have no shower i did not see the need to have a gray tank, just the 46 gal black tank. The sucking effect should be no problem as long as the tank is vented well.

Ditto

Since my conversion is a rather quicky one and frankly, I'm not too into having a shower unit (height is an issue in my bus), I'm happy just having a larger black water tank as well. Large enough for the toliet and kitchen.

Well, I haven't got to tanks yet, but I haven't come across any reason not to have a single tank, so it's still the plan.
