1973 argosy 26ft.

I recently purchased a 1973 Argosy 26ft and I having some trouble figuring out the shower greywater tank. Is there a separate tank for the shower or does it use the blackwater tank? Any help would be great!

Unless a prior owner has modified your coach, the gray water was plumbed such that it all drained on the ground - - there was no gray water tank. If your coach happens to have a below-floor blackwater tank, it is possible to back the gray water up into the tank, but if your coach has usual Argosy arrangement the blackwater tank is above the floor immediately below the toilet. Even when there was a gray water tank on some Argosy coaches (the '77-'79 Minuets are the coaches of which I am thinking) did not collect the shower water. Today, there are basically two "solutions" - - use a blue "tote-tank" to collect gray water - - add a gray water tank.

Good luck with your coach!

Kevin
