We own a 69 Sovereign and would like to install a gray water tank in addition to the black water tank. Does anyone know if I could tie the vent for that gray water tank into the existing kitchen vent stack so as to eliminate a third vent on the roof?

How many vents do the newer Airstreams with a gray and black tank have anyway?

And while I'm asking, where is the best location for adding a gray water tank into my 69 Sovereign? I was guessing near the double-axles, but does anyone have any specifics on their retrofit of adding a gray water tank to an older A/S?

Yes - vents can be tied in with another.

Two vents - on my 1975 24ft. My guess is
a general rule to have as few as is possible.
Longer units may have three - I am not sure

Adding gray tanks - it can be done, and
has been done - it aint a small task. Go
to the Forums and look around for some folks
who have added gray tanks.

Do you have a vent thru the roof on the k.s. now,if so that is all you need,just tie the drain into new tank,a 1-1/2 pipe can act as a waste & drain at the same time. Dave

The vents can be tied together. IIRC on my 31' there are 3, but you have 2 tanks, 2 sinks, 1 potty and a tub that all have vents on them. I believe that the throne is actually vented via the black tank vent. I have one over the kitchen area, one over the tub area and the other is near the toilet. When I get home I will post a pdf of the vent/plumbing on a 1975 model. FWIW they have a minuscule (~10 gallons) grey tank but it is better than nothing.

Thanks Aaron, a diagram would help to give me further guidance. I'm looking to just have two vents to serve all my vent needs if possible, which are a black and gray water tank and the kitchen sink. (I'm looking to avoid any further possible leak-points, as I'm still chasing down a few errant drips here and there).


Dave, I'm not sure what you mean when you asked the following, does "k.s" mean "kitchen sink"? If so, yes, there is a vent-pipe up on the roof above that area, although I haven't chased down the exact routing of it yet.

Thanks for the feedback everyone, this forum rocks.
